Arrival and Departure Times

Arrival is any time after 5pm (April-October) The properties will be ready at different intervals throughout the day of your arrival. We will make every effort for an earlier check in time. Especially within Winter months (November-April). Please contact to discuss.

If you plan to arrive late in the evening, please let us know in advance so we can ensure you're well taken care of.

Departure is up to 10am so we have time to prepare for our next guests. Later departures at certain times of the year and for short stays may be arranged by prior arrangement. Please call to discuss.

Grocery Pack

Groceries, butcher meat, fish and other provisions can be provided on your arrival day. Contact details for local businesses that provide these services can be provided upon request. Please contact the business directly who will forward an order form to be completed. You can either settle directly or with Portnellan at the end of your holiday.

Cleaning Surcharge

When you arrive you will see that the property is cleaned and maintained to a very high standard. You are expected to maintain these high standards of cleanliness in the lodge throughout your holiday. Upon departure the property must be left in the same condition as it was found. We have a team of housekeepers but they are not slaves - so please respect the property as your own and do not present us with the embarrassing situation of having to ask for a cleaning surcharge of up to £100. Glasses do get broken, but they do have to be replaced, so please note you will be asked to settle for any broken glasses. They are £4 each.

Security/Key Deposit

A security/key refundable deposit of £100 (£250 for Portnellan House) is required on arrival and can be settled by credit/debit card. Any damage, breakage or spillage in your lodge or cottage should be reported so we can maintain the high standards our guests expect. Repairs or damage will incur an additional charge, which must be settled in full.
