Conditions of Booking
We pride ourselves on being a family orientated park; we only accept bookings from families or couples. We do not cater for large groups, hens/stags or anyone looking to stay up all night. We have a strict noise curfew on our site from 11 p.m. to 8 a.m. We reserve the right to decline or terminate the booking of any guest(s) whose party make-up or behaviour interferes or may interfere with the general comfort of other guests. In this event no refunds will be made. River Valley Holiday Park and its facilities are intended for family holidays.
Touring & Camping Pitch Allocation
Sites are available on a first come, first served basis. We cannot guarantee that units booked in together will be beside each other on site.
Please note that the registration of the car and caravan must match or the unit will not be allowed on site.
Payment on arrival to the park can only be made by cash, debit card or credit card. No caravan/motorhome/tent will be allocated a site until the full balance has been paid. Families will not have access to rental accommodation until the full balance has been paid. Please do not ask staff to allow access to site without full balance payment as refusal may offend. All prices are quoted in Euro.
Touring & Camping:
If no notification is given, and the pitch is not occupied by 11 a.m. the day after the booked arrival date, then the Park reserves the right to re-let the pitch with payment non-refundable and the booking non-transferrable.
If no notification is given, and the customer has not made contact by 9 p.m. on the arrival date, then the Park reserves the right to take full payment for the remaining balance. The deposit/payment is non-refundable and non-transferrable.
On arrival, all customers/visitors are to report to reception. Your arrival is welcome from 10 a.m. for camping/touring bookings, from 2 p.m. for glamping and 4 p.m. for self- catering accommodation hire. Access to the park will not be permitted until payment is received in full. All visitors must arrive before 9 p.m. unless alternative arrangements have been made with reception.
Checkout time on the day of departure is by 12 p.m. for touring & camping and by 11 a.m. for accommodation hire. No refunds will be given for departing nights early. Please do not ask as refusal may offend.

Smoking is NOT allowed inside the accommodations, on the accommodation decking or near window/door openings. We do not allow pets inside any of our accommodation or the surrounding areas of the accommodation. If you have hired our accommodation, then you are not allowed to bring a pet to the Park.
You must use your accommodation and its contents with care and leave it in a clean and tidy condition on departure. We reserve the right to charge you for any extra cleaning, missing items or damage.

The members of your party and the allocation of guests in each accommodation unit must remain the same for the whole of your stay.
The maximum number of guests in each accommodation unit (as stated on our website) must not be exceeded. If it is, we may move those additional persons to another accommodation unit and will charge you or them the appropriate full charge for the additional accommodation, from the date your party arrived for the break.
Requests for specific accommodation units must be made at time of reservation and whilst we will endeavor to meet all special requests, they cannot be guaranteed. If confirmation of your reservation depends on a particular house being available, we regret we cannot accept the booking.
Dogs are allowed on the touring/camping park, but must be kept on a short lead at all times and supervised by an adult at all times. By bringing your dog to River Valley Holiday Park you are accepting full responsibility for its conduct and behaviour. Any dog that is deemed to be unsuitable or a nuisance will result in the owner being asked to remove it from the site immediately. Dogs are not allowed in the amenity block or any rental accommodations.
Please note there is a €150 fine for dog fouling on the Park. Anyone found not to be “clearing up” after his or her dog will be fined and asked to leave immediately with no refund given.
Under the Control of Dogs Act 1986, all dog owners by law must have a dog licence, and all dogs must be under the control of their owner or another person capable of controlling them. Certain breeds must be muzzled when in a public place. Please know your responsibilities.
If you wish to extend your stay, then please check with reception as soon as possible or check online. Extensions can be arranged subject to availability and potential relocation, however there is no guarantee that pitches/accommodation can be extended beyond the dates originally booked.

Please put disposable BBQ’s in the bin only when cold, otherwise they will start a fire.
Children remain the responsibility of their parents/guardians at all times. It is particularly important that you always know where your children are and that you provide adequate supervision for them at all times. Ball games are only allowed in the sports hall which must be booked in the office..

We do not accept liability for any injury suffered due to the misuse of equipment on site.
Care of those unable to look after themselves
You should ensure that all members of your party who are unable to look after themselves are at all times fully supervised by a capable adult member of your party and if appropriate, medication is brought with you for their needs and can be properly administered.
