Renting an Irish Holiday Home

Apr 23, 2008
There are many different types of Irish holiday homes available to rent which offers you the chance to explore this beautiful country at a pace that is convenient to you. But if you have not actually rented a holiday home before we offer a few tips, which can help to ensure that you not only get great accommodation but have a wonderful, vacation as well.

Tip 1 - Most of the homes available to rent for holidays are privately owned and so the standard from one to the next can differ greatly. If you want to ensure that you have the best accommodation possible, arrange the booking through an agency who only insist on the highest standards possible.

Tip 2 - Unlike hotels, when renting a holiday home the dates from which you can rent it are usually Saturday-to-Saturday. Although some may offer other arrangements there are very few that do. Also, you will find that you cannot actually get the keys for the property until about mid afternoon on the day of your arrival, as the owners or the agents will need time to make sure that the property is ready for your visit.

Tip 3 - When it comes to the price at which these properties are rented out at it does not tell you just what state the property is in. In many cases, rental prices will relate to where the property is located and at what time of year you are renting it at. You may find that you are going to get a much better quality of accommodation if you choose to select a holiday home in one of the less desired locations.

Tip 4 - If you are after a certain holiday home and would like to be assured of getting the dates you want it is advisable that you book well in advance. As well as getting exactly what you want you may find that you also get a discount on the price you pay for renting it. You may well find that in order to book your accommodation well in advance that the owner or agent will require a small deposit from you to ensure that the week or weeks you want do not get booked by others.

Tip 5 - Before you book the accommodation, you need to find out exactly what is included within rental price. Most rental prices include all the necessary amenities and facilities one would expect when living at home. But you need to be aware that some may charge extra for bed linen and you may be required to pay for the electricity and heating that you use during your stay. Also, if you are going to be bringing a pet with you then you may find an additional charge is levied on the rental price for this.

Tip 6 - If you want to save money on your holiday home in Ireland then it is a good idea to go at the times of year when there are likely to be less visitors. Also, you may find that even during the height of the summer season by selecting a property in a less popular part could also save you money as well.

In this article, we have offered some tips, which should help you in finding the right kinds of Irish holiday homes if you are going to be vacationing in this part of Europe. Also, we have offered some tips that should help you to save money on your accommodation. It is important however that you take your time and carry out as much research before you actually make that all important booking.
