Terms and Conditions


By making a booking the client agrees to be bound by the conditions of this contract. 

For any advice, or information please contact us.

The contract is for a short-term holiday rental of the property specified on this site made between the client and the owners of Deugh an Chy (‘the owners’), Ann and Daniel Donovan, binding from such time that booking is made and inclusive of all the following conditions.

By making a booking the client contracts on behalf of himself/herself and all those in his/her party and represents that he/she has the authority to accept these conditions on behalf of and binding upon all guests in his/her party.

Bookings are accepted on the understanding that the property is taken for holiday purposes only and that, excepting babies, the number of people at the property is limited to that at the time of booking.

On booking the client is to make ‘the owners’ aware of the clients full name and address and telephone number and the name of each member of the clients party and the age of those under 18.

The client and any friends or family of the client visiting the property while the client is staying there must adhere to the conditions of the contract. 


A deposit of 25% of the cost is payable on booking if the booking is made more than eight weeks before the start of the rental. If a booking is made less than eight weeks before the Holiday is due to start, the full rent must be paid at the time of booking.

Bookings are provisional until a deposit is received and are held for 48 hours. The balance shall be payable eight weeks before the commencement of the rental. Non-payment of the balance of the rent on or after the due date may be construed as a cancellation of the contract by the client.

The owners shall not be responsible for sending reminders of the Due Date. 


In the event of a cancellation the total cost is payable.

Any cancellation made by the client for whatever reason shall be in writing and addressed to the address on this website. On receipt of the notice of cancellation we will seek to re-let the property for the period of booking. If a re-letting is achieved, we will refund money already paid by the client less rent for any part of the period which was not able to be re-let.

The client is strongly advised to take out holiday cancellation insurance.


We offer a 10% discount to all tenants who have stayed with us previously and a 5% discount to anyone booking for 2 or more weeks. 

Only one discount may be applied to each booking.
