Irish Mini Breaks - Frequently Asked Questions

How does Irish Mini Breaks work?

Irish Mini Breaks was developed to assist companies wishing to deliver a reward to their staff or customers. As you progress through the Irish Mini Breaks website you will get to the point where you make your deposit payment to secure your hotel booking. At that point you can enter your discount code to gain a further discount on already heavily discounted hotel prices. If you don’t have a discount code please email and we will supply you with a discount code for your company/association/club or even you own circle of friends or family members.

How many people can I book for?

There is a general limit of 20 rooms that you can book simultaneously. However, if you have additional requirements, you should e-mail us at and we will be happy to facilitate you in any way possible.

Can I book over the phone?

Yes - please call 00 353 (0) 1 556 3400 and select option 1.

Do I need to book in advance?

Not necessarily. Advance booking is always recommended to assure availability and also to secure the best available deal, but it is generally possible to book up to 4pm on the same day as your arrival date.

How do I know that my reservation is confirmed?

When you have completed the steps of the reservation process, an instant on-screen confirmation will appear. It will show your reservation details as well as your booking number. We advise you to print this out. Within a couple of minutes, you will receive a confirmation email containing all the information of your booking and the hotel's contact details. Please ensure to print a copy out for your records.

I have booked a hotel but I did not receive a confirmation by email, what do I have to do?

The most common reason for not getting a confirmation email is typing your email address incorrectly. Therefore, please double check your email address before completing your reservation. Occasionally, our confirmation email may end up in your spam folder. If you do not receive an email after you have made a booking, please send an email with your booking number and details to

What if I need to extend my stay or book more rooms?

If you require additional rooms or would like to extend your stay at the hotel, you can once again book through and reserve more rooms. Please be aware that there is no guarantee that additional rooms will be available.

What happens with my booking deposit?

The booking deposit is used to secure the reservation with your chosen hotel on our "Fixed Price" packages in Ireland and the UK. Please be aware that this booking deposit is non- refundable. The balance remaining on your booking is paid directly to the hotel on arrival/departure. Your discount code is applied to the booking deposit.

The discount lowers the deposit amount that you pay when making a booking but does not change the balance payable to the hotel on arrival. No deposits are required on our bookings made on "Value Deals" rooms as the full payment is required at time of booking.

On our international rooms (Those outside Ireland and the UK) No deposit or payment is required but you will be asked to pay the full amount on booking. You can use your credit or debit card details to secure your booking with the hotel.

What credit cards can I book with?

When booking through Irish Mini Breaks you can use Laser, MasterCard, Visa and Visa Debit to secure your reservation.

If I don't have a credit card, can I still book?

Unfortunately all hotels require a credit or debit card to guarantee a reservation. We are not able to process any reservation without a credit or debit card.

How do I find available hotels for the period I want to stay?

In the search menu on the left containing the arrival date, please select the dates of your stay in the pop-up calendar and click search.

How do I search for hotels with specific facilities such as, for example, a pool?

Once your initial search is completed for your desired location you will be presented with a selection of hotels. Within each hotel descriptions you will see the facilities that the hotel has to offer.

How do I search for hotels that offer family rooms?

Once your initial search is completed for your desired location, you will be presented with a selection of hotels. Within these results, you will be shown the variety of rooms that are available at the hotel and their capacity.

Where can I find the contact details of the hotel?

You will find the address on the hotel page. The contact details will be given, after you have made the reservation, in the confirmation email.

I saw a special offer for a hotel but when I tried to book it was not available! What do I do next?

It is likely that the special offer was sold out on the requested date. If you are restricted to set dates, you need to search for a different hotel with a similar offer.

Where can I find the directions to the hotel?

At the bottom of the overview page of the hotel you can find travel information with details on location and directions.

Can I book hotel Breaks for 1 person?

All of the offers on our "Fixed Price" packages are advertised as per room (double or twin rooms). In some instances, hotels may offer a single room and these will show as available and bookable for a single room rate. Hotels retain the right to charge a supplement for a single room and this will be made clear to you during the booking process.
