Thank you for choosing to book with Clare Island Lighthouse. We look forward to welcoming you to our lighthouse on Clare Island. By making this booking you are entering an agreement with us. Please read our terms and conditions of booking below.


The price includes accommodation, breakfast and evening meal inclusive of VAT.


By special arrangement we may allow dogs to stay, providing that they are kept on a lead at all times when outside and are exercised only in the areas indicated by us.

Booking Confirmation & Deposit

Non-Refundable 20% Deposit Required to confirm all bookings, payable by Visa or PayPal. All bookings are confirmed by email.

Cancellation and Insurance

By making your booking, our agreement is a legal contract and your deposit is non-refundable under any circumstances. We would recommend that you take out cancellation insurance to cover this cost.

If you need to cancel please contact us immediately.

For cancellations made up to 7 days before your booked stay you will not be liable for the total balance.  For cancellations made after this time, or by failing to take up the booking without cancelling, you are still liable to pay for the booking in full, even if we have not yet received your balance. We will exercise this right at our discretion.If we do succeed in re-letting the booking, you are no longer liable for the balance, or we will refund it to you if you have already paid it, less a 2% administration fee. If you need to cancel your booking due to adverse weather conditions or exceptional family circumstances we are happy to transfer your booking to another date if at all possible, without loss of your original deposit.  Please contact us to discuss.

Non-availability of Accommodation

We would only cancel your stay if your accommodation was unavailable for reasons beyond our control. We would however attempt to offer you alternative accommodation.  If this was not possible, or unacceptable to you, then we would refund all monies paid by you for the holiday. Our liability would not extend beyond this refund.


Your accommodation will be available to you from 3.00pm on the day of arrival, unless otherwise arranged. We may not be able to accommodate you if you arrive earlier than the agreed time as we will be busy preparing your rooms. However, you may drop off your bags and collect your room keys at an earlier time by prior arrangement. Please notify us of your estimated time of arrival if possible (a telephone call on the day before or morning of arrival is fine).

Late arrival procedure

Please ensure you contact us to let us know if you will be arriving late, and your new estimated time of arrival.

Room Vacation

Please vacate your room by 11.00am, unless otherwise arranged.


The balance of your payment is payable after breakfast on the last day of your stay.  Payment can be made by cash, credit or debit card,  paypal or cheque supported by a cheque guarantee card.

A warm welcome awaits you at Clare Island Lighthouse.
