As a family friendly hotel resort with a huge percentage of our guests being the next generation we believe we are ideally positioned to reinforce that green message. Together, doing what we can, we can help restore and maintain our land and environment for the generations ahead by walking softly on our plant” said Eibhear Coyle General Manager of the Amber Springs. Focusing on specific issues like reducing, recycling and reusing solid waste, reducing the use of chemicals, conserving energy and water and improving indoor air quality alongside every facet of the hotel operations our aim is to initiate immediate steps to improve what we do and how we do it, not just because our guests ask but because we recognise as a leading hotel in Ireland we must pave the way” he concluded.
