We are running on Hydro Power!
One of the biggest sustainability projects we took on was to install a hydro electric turbine on the river running alongside us. This was a two year project and was done in consultation with the local county council, the fisheries board, environmental experts and consultants in hydro power. We installed a 220 kilowatt hydro turbine. When the river is in full flow, we are getting 100% of our electricity needs from the river. In doing so, we have dramatically reduced our dependency on carbon fuels, to the point where we are now a carbon neutral property.
We are the only hotel in Ireland to generate our own sustainable electricity in this manner. We are very proud of this achievement.
When staying with us, you have a zero carbon footprint!
