  • Services and Offerings Questions

    • Can you arrange strippers/butlers? Are the venues okay with us bringing in a stripper?

    While we don't personally arrange strippers, I'd advise reaching out to the company you're planning to book with. They'll be better positioned to guide you regarding venues that are open to such entertainment. We aren't big fans of strippers here to be honest.

    Feel free to choose! If you're keen on just activities and no extras, we can absolutely cater to that.

    We'd appreciate getting the final list of attendees and the full payment at least 3 weeks prior to the event.

    • Can a single room be included in the quote for older participants?

    Certainly! We'll scout for availability and provide you with the rates for single rooms.

    Typically, check-in begins from 3pm, while check-out wraps up by 11am. However, these times can vary by establishment.

    Absolutely! Most places are more than happy to store your luggage if you arrive a bit early or want to explore post check-out.

    Can we change our room types or get a different room allocation?

    Of course. We can inquire about room availability and potential changes for you. Just keep in mind that rates might differ depending on the room type you're considering.

    • Are the activities and meals timed to avoid clashes with check-in or other events?

  • Communication and Coordination Questions

    • Will we have a dedicated event coordinator or point of contact?

    While we provide a comprehensive itinerary before your event, which includes maps, directions, times, etc., we won't be on-site. Rest assured, though, the itinerary will have all the info you'll need.

    • How frequently will we receive updates leading up to the event?

    Throughout the booking process, we'll stay in touch, sending reminders and updates so you're always in the loop.

    • Do you offer a mobile app or online portal for attendees to view details and updates?

    Yes! We have a nifty portal named Grouptrakk. Here, you can invite attendees and they can easily access booking details.

  • Event Details and Customization:

    Can we see a sample of our itinerary?

    Of course! I'd be happy to draft a sample itinerary for you to review.

    Can we decorate the room or restaurant?

    Absolutely. Just remember, items like selotape on walls or confetti might not be permitted by some establishments.

    Certainly! Enjoying games in your reserved space is no issue at all.

    • What is included in the dinner (e.g., how many courses)?

    The package generally comes with a 2-course meal. But if you're thinking of an upgrade to 3 courses, just let me know, and I'll provide the pricing details.

    Activities are designed to engage and entertain, typically lasting between an hour to an hour and a half.

    If you've opted for self-catering accommodation, you're welcome to bring in your chosen suppliers.

  • Changes and Adjustments Questions:

    • Can we change our times or the details of our itinerary?

    Unfortunatley once your booking has been secured we can't change your times or activity preferences. There is such a huge demand out there we don't want to lose what we already have booked in for you!

    • How do we handle people dropping out or adding more guests?

    Up to 3 weeks before the booking, you can adjust your numbers – adding or removing attendees as needed.

    • Can we view the payments that have been made?

    Absolutely. You can easily track payment details via our Grouptrakk portal.

    • Are there non-alcoholic alternatives available for pregnant attendees?

    For activities like a cocktail class, we can arrange non-alcoholic versions. For other venues, it's typically at the bar's discretion and safety will always need to be taken into account.

    If both the Hen and Stag parties book with us, the Brides and the Grooms are included in the package at no extra cost. Otherwise, standard rates apply for them.

Closer to the Event

  • Itinerary and Timings Questions

    • When can we view our full itinerary?

    Well, you'll be able to take a look at your full itinerary approximately 3 weeks prior to the Hen. We always aim to give you ample time to review and make any necessary adjustments.

    • Why weren't we consulted about the timings for activities and meals?

    So we will always book the times on your booking form when we get it. If for any reason we have to change times due to supplier constraints, we'll always let you know before we do :0)

    • Can we change our activity or meal timings?

    I'm so sorry but as there is such a huge shortage of suppliers out there, once the times are booked they can't be changed. And we'd hate to lose what we already have booked in for you!

  • Payments and Charges Questions

    • Why can't we view our itinerary even after making a full payment?

    Good question! Our itineraries are all released 3 weeks before your event date.

    • Can the payment deadline be extended?

    I understand how this might be helpful, but unfortunately, we maintain a strict deadline of 3 weeks before the event.

  • 'What Happens if' Questions

    • What's the plan in case of inclement weather, especially for outdoor activities?

    Weather can certainly be unpredictable! If an activity can't proceed due to weather conditions, the supplier will, wherever possible, provide an alternative activity. If there's no available alternative, rest assured that the activity's cost will be refunded to you.

    • How do you handle last-minute venue or supplier changes?

    Such situations are rare, but when they occur, we prioritize finding the best possible alternative for you. Our team works tirelessly to ensure minimal disruption to your event.

    • In case of emergencies, what support or assistance can we expect from your team?

    Your peace of mind is paramount. On the day of the event, your itinerary will have all essential contact numbers for suppliers, ensuring swift resolution to any issues. Additionally, our team is always ready to assist you in the lead-up to the event.

Grouptrakk Questions

  • Using Grouptrakk Questions

    • How does it work?

    Once your booking is secured and set in stone, you'll get an email containing your Grouptrakk login details. With those in hand, it's super easy! Simply invite your buddies to chip in directly on Grouptrakk by sharing a nifty link with them.

    • How do I log in to my Grouptrakk?

    You'd log in just like you would with most sites – using your designated username and password. If you've forgotten them, no worries, just give me a shout!

    • I do not have my login details. How do I log in?

    Oh, technology can be a bit tricky sometimes! I'd be more than happy to resend your login details. Just a heads up, sometimes they land in the spam folder, so maybe take a peek there too.

    • How do I add members to my group in Grouptrakk?

    It's so easy! All you need to do is pop in their email address and name. After that, you can forward them the payment link. And voila, they're in!

    • I invited a member, but she hasn't received the login details yet.

    Technology hiccups! First, it might be a good idea for her to check her spam folder. If the email isn't hiding there, we can poke our IT team to reissue the link.

    • I have lost my login details, can you re-send them?

    Absolutely, not a problem at all! Things get lost in the digital world too. I'll shoot those details over to you in no time.

  • Payment and Balance Queries

    • Can people pay in instalments?

    Absolutely! Grouptrakk is designed with flexibility in mind. Your group members can chip in whenever they like and break it down into manageable instalments.

    • Is the deposit taken from the balance on Grouptrakk?

    So, the deposit is taken off the overall Booking Total. However, it might not be reflected directly in Grouptrakk.

    • Why is the balance more than it should be? (Haven't given updated numbers)

    Ah, let's clear that up! If you could give me the latest headcount, I'll make sure to adjust your booking so the balance matches your expectations.

    • How much do we have to pay?

    Your payment would be the package price as outlined in your quote, plus the €100 booking deposit. No hidden fees, promise!

    • When I log in, how do I pay?

    So once you're logged in, look to the left. There's a "make payment" tab there just waiting for your click.

    • I can ring and pay now over the phone. How do I do that?

    Unfortunatly we can't take payments over the phone. But do let us know if you need help with Grouptrakk

    • Does my deposit come off the total?

    Yes, it does! Whatever deposit you've put down, it'll be subtracted from your overall booking total.

    • The balance on Grouptrakk is too high. I'm worried we have to pay this amount.

    No need for any worry lines! Just let me know your final group numbers, and we'll get that booking updated pronto.

    The balance is too high if numbers drop. Do I still have to pay if I don't have the expected number of attendees?

    So if you let us know about your final attendee count 3 weeks before the big day, we'll happily adjust. But if it's past that 3-week mark, we'll need to stick with the initial numbers.
