In line with this we will continually strive to improve our environmental practices in a range of areas including energy and water useage. We will also continue to develop a number of ecotourism experiences for our customers to enjoy.
The following are actions have taken by us and continue to be taken to minimize our footprint on the environment in conjunction with the
1 Green Village concept.
• All food waste and waste office paper is collected for composting.
• All garden waste is composted and then reused in the garden.
• Cardboard packaging, newspapers, magazines, glass, cans, plastic bottles and used light bulbs and batteries are all returned to our suppliers or collected for recycling. We are committed to further reducing waste to landfill.
We removed all single use wrappers, (biscuits, sauces, & Butter) from the Bar, Restaurant, & Bedrooms and replaced them with homemade biscuits and refillable containers for sauces.
Plastic Drinking Straws & Take Away Coffee cups have been replaced with Bio Degradable types.
• All of our heating and hot water is generated by new and efficient combination condensing oil boilers. We have replaced all radiator valves with thermostatic versions. In Caseys of Baltimore Hotel & Baltimore Townhouse Accommodation we use solar panels to preheat our hot water supply to approx 30 Deg C.

We are an active member of the 'Free Refill Water' initiative, a voluntary environmental project leading the way to make Ireland a tap water refilling country again. it avoids unnecessary (single use) plastic drinking water bottle waste.
• We strive to use own garden herbs, & vegetables which are organically grown, for use by our kitchen whenever possible.
• We do not use weed killers or other harmful chemicals in our gardens or carpark.
• As much as possible of our food is sourced from local producers thereby reducing food miles (the distance that food must travel to get from farm to fork). Products such as meat, fresh fish, smoked fish, salads, eggs and cheeses are mostly from the locality. As much produce as possible is sourced from small artisan producers.
• We are in the process of changing to provide high quality refillable natural bath products in our guest bathrooms, & Public rooms.
• We send e-invoices were possible to reduce the amount of paper that we use and also re-use paper at the front desk and offices.

Leave No Trace
Leave No Trace Ireland is a network of organisations and individuals with an interest in promoting the responsible recreational use of the outdoors. As increasing numbers of people seek the beauty and exhilaration of outdoor recreation, our collective mark on the environment and its natural processes, increases. Litter, disturbance to vegetation, water pollution, wildlife, livestock and other people are all indicators of the need to develop a national ethic that protects both natural and cultural heritage. Techniques designed to minimise the social and environmental impacts to these areas are incorporated into the Leave No Trace Programme.
The Seven Principles of Leave No Trace:
At the heart of Leave No Trace are seven principles for reducing the damage caused by outdoor activities. These are:
1. Plan Ahead and Prepare
2. Be Considerate of Others
3. Respect Farm Animals and Wildlife
4. Travel and Camp on Durable Ground
5. Leave What You Find
6. Dispose of Waste Properly
7. Minimise the Effects of Fire
Leave No Trace Ireland promotes and inspires responsible outdoor recreation through education, research and partnerships. The programme strives to build awareness, appreciation and respect for Ireland's natural and cultural heritage and is dedicated to creating a nationally recognised and accepted outdoor ethic that promotes personal responsibility.
It encourages all outdoor enthusiasts (e.g. walkers, mountain bikers, canoeists, orienteerers, horse riders) to do their part to maintain those lands used by the public for the benefit of the environment and for future generations. Practicing a Leave No Trace ethic is simple. Make it hard for others to see or hear you and LEAVE NO TRACE of your visit.

Thank you all so much for a wonderful stay! It couldn't have been more fantastic. The rooms, food and accommodations were lovely. We are planning our O'Driscoll family stay for next year with you!

Stayed a night, it was so good we stayed another. The place is fantastic, cosy, warm. And the staff are great, welcoming and helpful. Food is some of the best food we have tasted on our trip so far.

Walking home after our meal and sampling the home brew from the on-site West Cork Brewery was just what we needed as we were comfortably stuffed with the large, delicious portions of the freshest seafood around, not to mention the home brew..

Crab and prawn starter was very tasty and four of us had tempura of prawn starter as a main course. This was generous in size and really well cooked.
