Get the best from your holiday home
We'll show you how to get the internet to work for YOU.
How get more bookings and make more from your property.
It's EASY to set up, it's easy and successful

As an owner of self-catering holiday property, you want lots of bookings and you don't want to pay high agency commissions. You may have tried booking agencies and been left with the feeling that you were ripped off. Or tried advertising and found it just didn't work.

Don't you wish it was easier to let lots of holiday makers find you, book a holiday and pay you?

I'll bet you do.

That's where we come in. My name is Martin Finn and I've been an internet marketeer for the past 14 years. Based in Youghal, we've set up the first and only holiday web site that exclusively sells this area – the area of East Cork and West Waterford that we call The Irish Riviera.

See the success!

"Its fantastic, I'm getting bookings in high season, low season - in fact all of the time".

"My rental revenues are way up. The system finds my customers, takes the payments and keeps a diary of everything."

Kate Fitzgibbon
Ahernes and The Penthouse -Youghal

We have just completed our first year, and it has been a great success. Since the web site went live, in late April 2004, we have had an amazing 210,000 visitors. That's over two hundred and ten thousand visitors wanting to know more about holidays in this area.

And they are still arriving; every day up to another 1,100 new visitors, come and read about the area. They find out where to go, what to see and do and where to stay.

But visitors don't just read about the area, they make online enquiries and on-line bookings too. Over 28,000 of our visitors asked for further details, pricing or availability. We've set it up so that all the properties we showcase can take handle those enquiries automatically 24 hours a day, and can take online credit card bookings too.

By the June of 2006 we were able to account for over €550,000 worth of bookings that we'd generated for local businesses. That's good but it could have been much, much more.

You see, we created far more demand that we could meet, we didn't have enough properties to sell, and what we had was sold out!

That's where you come in. We're happy to offer you a FREE listing for your property to help us meet some of our demand.

We won't charge you for a standard listing on The Irish Riviera web site. You don't have to pay to have your own web site and booking system (don't worry if that sounds complicated – it's not).

All we ask is that you have regular access to PC and e-mail, and that you will ensure that your pricing and availability calendar is up to date (we don't want to get any double bookings).

We are unlike other web based marketing system. There is no lengthy contract, no exclusive marketing agreements and you are free to use your property whenever you like, even in peak season.

Amazingly, we don't mind if you continue to take bookings from other sources. We recognise that you may have repeat visitors or other sources of guests. We don't make any charge for bookings unless we have found them for you.

AND we don't tell you what prices to charge. (Most of customers tell us that they get better rental rates via us than from any other source of business).

We do charge a flat 10% commission upon all the bookings that we generate – and that's it.

So what do you have to lose? Nothing. What do you have to gain? More bookings, throughout the year, at top prices.

Why delay? There are bookings to be gained every day. Just go ahead and join today and you should be online within 24 hours.

And that's not all. We also produce The Irish Riviera Guide Book, a free book that can be downloaded from out website, which has even more detail about the area – and includes all of our showcased properties. To date we've distributed over 8,000 copies of the book, and have many thousands of people on our mailing list waiting for the updated editions – with all the new properties added.

You may have looked at The Irish Riviera website and thought it was only about Youghal. In 2004 (our test year) it was. But whole new sections are in production to complete the story for the whole Riviera including Ardmore, Dungarvan, Lismore, Ballycotton, Cobh, Midleton and and more.

You can be part of The Irish Riviera success story today, just fill in the entry form below and we'll guide you through the whole process.

 * FREE? Your listing on The Irish Riviera is free, but you will need to have an online booking account with Rental Systems to allow you to take online bookings. Rental Systems are a completely separate company (owned by the Daily Mail) and they may charge you to create your account. We have no influence over these charges.
