Without our magnificent natural environment, we wouldn’t be operating here at Lough Key. It’s our most valuable resource and we’re dedicated to preserving it through sustainable practices.
In 2022, we begin an exciting sustainability programme through Fáilte Ireland, focused on reducing our carbon footprint as much as possible. We will also explore how we can be sustainable in other ways, including economically and socially.
Of course, we already have a large number of initiatives in place to make sure we’re caring for our surroundings in an ethical and future-focused way.

Trees are often called the lungs of the earth. By managing the park in a sustainable way, we’re making sure our little area of forestry is helping to keep our planet healthy.

Trees and Plants
To allow the flora and fauna to live and breathe, we leave certain areas to grow naturally without being “manicured”. And to make sure trees continue to flourish for generations to come, we replant every one that falls or needs to be knocked. The fallen trees are put to good use; their bark is used for mulch to keep the cycle of life rotating.
We endeavour to be as energy-efficient as possible by using wood pellet heating and underfloor heating. Our solar panels help us to generate our own energy and we use rechargeable batteries where possible.
We follow the mantra of “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle”, meaning very little gets thrown away. Recycling and compost bins are in place and all our takeaway packaging is eco-friendly.
