Environmental Management Policy

 The Staff and Management of Hotel Doolin are committed to our Green Hospitality Programme. Our three P’s are People, Planet and Profit and our aims are to Reduce, Re-use & Recycle! Hotel Doolin is committed to sustainability in every facet of the business.

This programme aims to reduce the carbon footprint of the hotel by reducing waste, water and energy use throughout the hotel. In our first year we received the Silver award and since then have been awarded the highest award of Platimun in 2013, an award that only 8 other hotels in ireland posses! Hotel Doolin won best medium Sized organisation 2018 & 2019 at the Green Awards as well as the Tourism & Entertainment Award in 2015, 2016 and 2017.

All of our staff and management have a role to play in our program from Danny in the kitchen, who oversees waste management in this area to Suphoj in the garden who makes it possible for us to grow our own deliciously fresh vegetables and herbs in the poly tunnel. Our staff are introduced to the program at induction stage and are encouraged to give their own feedback on any improvements that they can see would help us reduce our carbon footprint.

There have been many changes to the Hotel since we implemented our Green Program including:

Green Initiatives 


Water Efficiency

Minimising Traffic/use of vehicle


In 2019, Hotel Doolin hopes to become a carbon negative business!

We have reduced our food waste per cover by 8% in the last two years.

Since 2017 (2 year period) we have reduced our water usage by 59% per guest.

We have raised circa €25,000 per annum in the last 2 years for several charities.
