  • Provisional bookings - We can make a provisional booking for your group in order to guarantee the availability. This is very important and will allow you time to source flights, etc. We will give you a deadline of how long we can hold the provisional booking for and will touch base with you at this deadline date for an update.

  • Confirmed bookings - If you confirm a booking with us we will send you a written confirmation containing your booking reference and payment details. An invoice totalling all costs, deposit due dates, etc. will also be sent to you for your records. We require a 25% booking deposit to fully confirm a reservation. We will require full contact address details to process the invoice.
  • Activities & tours booking service - We can book a full range of activities & tours for groups staying in our hostels - airport transfers, meals, tours, attractions, Irish experiences, etc. Just tell us what you need and we will book it for your group. To get ideas check out our activities & tours section here.

 

  • Check up - We will touch base with you several weeks prior to your group's arrival to check to see if you have any other requirements and remind you of your balance due dates and other details that we will require to finalise your group.
  • Amendments / changes - You can amend the rooming on booking as required to match your group's breakdown (subject to availability). We understand that group numbers go up/down and we will work with you to get the best rooming breakdown for your group.
  • Group's final details - A group's name list and estimated time of arrival are required 4 weeks prior to your arrival date. If we have activities and tours booked for your group, we will also require flight details and a contact group leader name/mobile for your group whilst in Ireland (in case we need to contact you)
  • Booking summary & vouchers - Prior to your group's arrival we will send you a booking summary as an overview of all services booked with us for your group and vouchers for the revelant services booked (if applicable). This is important documentation and must be produced for all services booked by Celtic Group Hostels.
