When Does the Draw take place?
The house draw will take place on Saturday 26th August, 2023. There will be promotional draws throughout the campaign and all winners will be shared on social media platforms and our website.
It says there is a limit of 15,000 tickets for sale, but I just got a ticket number higher than 15,000 – why is that?
By the time we stopped selling tickets offline, 726 of our offline ticket allocation were unsold. These tickets have been made available online, beginning at 15,001.
How do I enter?
There are 2 options for purchasing tickets.
- Online at our secure payment website link https://www.winahouseinkinsale.com and you will receive an automated email receipt for your purchase. This email contains your ticket number(s).
- Hard copy tickets are available to purchase at a number of outlets locally and from approved committee members.
Can I purchase a ticket as a gift?
Yes, it is your responsibility to register the ticket in the name of the person you are gifting it to. This person will be the single point of contact for the draw.
Can a Group or Syndicate buy a ticket?
Yes, a syndicate can buy a ticket. It is the responsibility of the syndicate to arrange their own agreement and to appoint and register one person only for the ticket. This person will act as the single point of contact for the draw
I have purchased a ticket online; will I receive an actual ticket in the Post?
No. On purchasing a ticket, you will receive an automated email which is a receipt for your order. This email will also include your ticket number for the draw. You will also receive a receipt from Stripe, our payment processing partner. If the email does not arrive in your inbox, please check your Spam/Junk mail folders before emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.

Can anyone attend the event?
Yes, we hope to have a public event. Further details will be posted on our website and different social media platforms in advance of the draw and we will adhere to Public Health Guidelines.

Do I need to be living in Ireland to claim the Prize?
No – the Draw is open worldwide to Natural persons age 18 and over.
Are Legal Fees included in the Prize?
Winner will cover all costs of conveyance and registration of the property as per terms and conditions on our website winahouseinkinsale.com
If I win, do I have to pay capital gains tax or stamp duty?
Irish tax legislation holds that any winnings from betting, lotteries, sweepstakes or games with prizes are exempt from Irish capital gains tax (CGT). The prize will also be exempt from capital acquisitions tax (CAT). Stamp duty on transfers of residential property is chargeable at the rate of 1% where the market value does not exceed €1 million and is payable by the transferee (in this case the winner).
In the terms on our website, clause 28 covers this in more detail: Conveyancing and registration of the property shall be arranged between the solicitor for the Builder and a solicitor to be arranged by and on behalf of the winner. The winner is responsible for his/her own side’s legal fees and any costs of registration of the property, including any stamp duty, land registry fees, searches or other fees or charges.
How is the house draw being conducted and will the draw be overseen, by an independent adjudicator?
The draw will be conducted by drawing a unique number from a drum with all unique entries inside. An independent person will draw the winning entry and it will be overseen by an independent adjudicator. We also recommend you read the terms and conditions document prior to entering the competition.
