News

There is always so much happening in Doolin it is hard to keep up!! Here are some of our more recent news....

Happy New Year everyone!

Looking back over 2018; what a year it was.  The Eco-Barn was built in four months and the success to date is thanks to the wonderful team.  The feedback from each event/wedding that takes place in this very special venue is extremely positive and week after week we get brilliant testimonials from all our wonderful couples who choose to get married at Hotel Doolin.

What else happened in 2018?  We implemented the new uniforms for the Food and Beverage Staff.

We won Best Medium Sized Organisation of the Year at the Green Awards last year, which not only recognises our environmental efforts in the hospitality industry but throughout all industries in Ireland.  We also won the A Greener Event Award 2018 for the Doolin Folk Festival; we are only one of two Irish festivals to be recognised in these awards; the other being Body and Soul.

We have been shortlisted in the February 2019 Green Awards in the following categories:

  • ·         Sustainability Team of the Year
  • ·         Green Medium Sized Organisation of the Year
  • ·         Tourism & Entertainment Award

So what other plans have we for 2019?

We aim to be carbon negative (not carbon neutral but carbon negative!) by end March 2019.

The restaurant will be renovated by the end of January 2019.  We are in the process of coming up with a new name!

We will complete our bedroom refurbishment in Spring 2019 which is being led by our Duty Manager, Fara Sharp who has an amazing eye for Interior Design.

Positions that we are recruiting for in Spring 2019 are as follows:

~        Shop Attendant

~        Café Supervisor

~        Housekeeping Attendants

~        Bar Manager

~        Restaurant Manager

The first Doolin Surf Fest will take place from 22nd – 24th March 2019. For more information please visit www.doolinfestivals.ie

The team helped to raise circa €25,000 for different charities since November 2018 

Hotel Doolin now run 8 holiday homes located immediately beside the hotel as well as Cullinan’s Guesthouse which is located right across the road from the hotel.

We hope to keep you updated on a regular basis in 2019 and wish you all the best for the year to come.

Warm regards,

Áine Martin

HR & Purchasing Manager, Green Team Leader
