Default supervalu breaks

Does anyone have any experience of those super valu breaks. I need to book a hotel for next weekend but just noticed that you have to have booked 2 weeks in advance. I have checked availability and there is room available. question is: Are they strict about the 2 week in advance rule. is it a good deal even.

We had a thread on this many moons ago and most people seemed to be of the opinion that you could in some cases get as good a deal yourself by looking around. Sorry I can't give advice about the booking in advance issue because even though I got a present of 1/2 vouchers in the past I never bothered to use them because I got better deals elsewhere.

I would also imagine that with next week-end being treated as Valentine's week-end the options on these vouchers/offers will be limited.

On making enquiries in the past about such type of offers the hotels themselves have confirmed that they would only block book a certain no. of rooms for same.

This is their website www.supervalugetawaybreaks.com/ and their helpline tel. no. is 0818 302 002.

There are quite a no. of good offers in the Indo at the moment. BTW don't forget from 14th Feb (Mon) is mid-term break for the schools.

You could have a look at www.pigsback.com/members/memSiteHomePer.asp if you are registered there and see if they have any specials for Galway/Clare.

I see they have www.qualityhotels.ie/ mentioned. We stayed in Quality Hotel in Oranmore, Galway which was very nice and just outside Galway city. They are normally quite reasonable.

You could have a look here Cheap Hotel Booking Sites and Hotel reviews website.

Now you've no excuses - off and get that week-end booked Enjoy yourelves.

Default 89 for June where would ye ger it!

Yesterday I booked with the Supervalue breaks to Birr in Co. Offaly. Weekend 2 x B&B's + 1 dinner or I could have had 3 nights midweek. Not bad for 89. per head in June. Went for the weekend so I don't have to take time off for lunch. Why Birr? I had a great day in Birr Castle last year. I can also visit Clonmacnoise. One of the U.K. travel programmes did a piece on Birr recently and it seemed really nice.

Default County Arms Hotel

What's wrong with paying a booking deposit of 10%? You pay the remaining 90% when you check out? Now if it was a booking FEE that would be a different matter. Logue's looks like a nice hotel. Was that price available for June or was it an off season offer?
