Submit your property for inclusion in our
National Ploughing Championships Accommodation Page
Carlow Tourism is a third party intermediary in respect of accommodation provision for the National Ploughing Championships. Therefore any booking arrangements including deposits and payments should be resolved directly between the accommodation provider and guests. Carlow Tourism cannot assume any liability in respect of any issues which may arise during accommodation provision or no-shows for the National Ploughing Championships.
Once you submit your accommodation details via this on-line portal, same will be live within 24-hours (excluding weekends where next working day rule will apply) on the following website address https://carlowtourism.com/2020-ploughing-championships/ This is the website address for those visitors and exhibitors who are seeking accommodation for the Ploughing Championships.
Following on from the experience of hosting the accommodation website for the 2019 Ploughing Championships the following new procedures will be put in place for 2020:
1. Providers will receive a monthly e-mail asking them to update the availability of their property. Failure to respond to this e-mail will result in automatic removal of your property from the website. Implementation of this rule will prevent properties which are fully booked remaining on the site which caused negative feedback in 2019. Visitors found that a lot of properties featured on the site were fully booked when they tried to secure accommodation. If a provider fails to update their availability within the time frame allowed but still wants to feature on the website it will be possible to submit one more request for a listing.
2. Carlow Tourism and the National Ploughing Association have published a suggested list of rates for the Ploughing Championships. If the rates you are submitting for your accommodation do not comply with these rates you will be automatically notified and given the opportunity to amend your prices to meet the rates being suggested.
3. Based on feedback from property owners all properties will be shown in random order from 2020 which will ensure that visitors will see a different list every time they log onto the website which gives each property provider a better chance of securing bookings. Again based on feedback from providers 100 entries will show per page reducing the amount of time that visitors have to scroll through web page entries.
4. A map picker will be added to the location box on the web form.
