Gort na Coiribe will begin accepting NEW applications for the 2019/20 academic year on Tuesday 26th February 2019. Applications can be made online only. A link will appear on the homepage which allow you to apply. You will not be asked to pay a deposit upon application. If you have preference of sharing request you must confirm this by stating the name and DOB of the person in the House preference additional information under the “room choice” section of your application.

Please note rooms will not be offered out on a first come first served basis as per previous years. We will receive applications over a 10 day period and then run an automated lottery pool in order to reduce human error and give everyone a fair chance of securing accommodation.

The successful applicants will be notified via email and asked to pay their deposit within 48 hours confirming the booking. Failure to pay the deposit within 48 hours will result in the room being offered to another applicant.

Sharing requests will only be granted in the event both applicants are successful in the lottery pool and receive confirmation of their accommodation and pay the deposit within the 48 hours. The full allocation process should be completed no later than Tuesday 19th March 2019. Unsuccessful applicants will remain on the waitlist and offered accommodation as future cancellations are received.

Please monitor the website for updates, or direct queries via e-mail to info@gortnacoiribe.ie. As this is an extremely busy time of year it may be difficult to get through to the office phone number.
