Dun Laoghaire

Due to the high demand for our DunLaoghaire Paddleboarding school events we have to operate a moderate cancellation policy. 

Firstly once a ticket is booked we have to charge a €5 booking fee that is non-refundable in any instance – unless we have to cancel the booking on our end.

After that the more notice we have the better, and this reflects in what we are able to offer in terms of refunding tickets – meaning the more forewarning we have the more money you get back.  


Here’s the breakdown: 

If you cancel with more than 7 days notice you will receive a full refund minus the €5 booking fee – per space purchased. 

If you cancel with more than 3 days and less than 7 days notice you will receive a 50% refund minus the €5 booking fee – per space purchased.  

If you cancel with less than 3 days notice we unfortunately won’t be able to refund any of the ticket price. 

In any instance no matter how close to the event the cancellation is we will always  endeavor to accommodate you at another time with no additional cost – but we can’t guarantee it. 

For the sake of clarity all cancellations must be made in writing and submitted via email or post. If you simply don’t turn up we won’t be able to refund any of the price of the booking. 

The company reserves the right to cancel or reschedule a session at any time without any prior notice where we believe it is necessary due to unsuitable conditions. Rescheduling a session, for example due to weather, is not a cancellation. If a session has to be cancelled by the company, customers have the option to book into another session or to get a full refund.


Health and Safety

Safety is of great importance at all times. Watersports Activities can be hazardous and customers (if under the age of 18 their parents/guardians) must accept that there are risks when practising the above mentioned sports. Customers must comply with all safety and general instructions given by the companies and their staff. When participating in a session, customers must be in general good health and must satisfy themselves that the activities are within their abilities. When booking with the companies, customers (if under the age of 18 their parents/guardians) must make a true and accurate declaration of their health and must make the companies aware of any medical conditions they have. The companies reserve the right to refuse a booking on medical grounds.


Medical attention

A Health Declaration must be signed in advance by all customers (see end of consent form). The customer will permit for basic First Aid to be administered by a qualified member of staff or by a qualified medical practitioner and in case of a medical emergency for a medical practitioner to provide emergency treatment and/or medication.


Activities / Group Structure

The nature of the activities are weather dependent and therefore are subject to change. The companies reserve the right to adjust schedules and activities accordingly.


Unruly Behaviour

Customers are required to be considerate towards others and to adhere to the companies’ noise management policy. If the customer or any member of their party is behaving in such a way as to cause danger, upset or distress to any third party or damage to property, the companies reserve the right either for the safety of staff or other participants to remove the person from the activity if necessary. No refunds will be given and the customers are liable for any damage caused. The consumption of alcohol or drugs/illegal substances on the companies’ premises is strictly prohibited. Parents/guardians are liable for their children.



The companies have public liability and employers liability insurance. A copy of any of the policies are available upon request by any customer.


Intellectual Property

The copyright and all other intellectual property rights in the products and services shown in the companies’ brochures, website and other materials shall at all times remain the property of the companies.



The companies occasionally take photographs and/or video during sessions, which may appear on the companies’ brochures, websites and other marketing materials including online. If a customer does not wish to be photographed this should be raised with the companies in writing before the session commences.


Data Protection

Personal information requested by the companies is held in its original form and on computer. The companies are the data controllers for the purposes of the Data Protection Act 1988 and will process the data in accordance with the act.


Applicable law

The contract and any dispute or claim arising out of it or in connection with it shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the Irish law. The customer irrevocably agrees that any dispute that arises shall be dealt with under the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of The Republic of Ireland.


Understanding of Terms and Conditions

The companies’ acceptance of any booking will only be done subject to the customer’s acceptance of these conditions and the Terms and Conditions on the companies’ websites.
