The Connacht Hotel


Topic: Green Hotel

The green team in the Connacht Hotel are once again taking action to help empowers visitors to be able choose “Greener” hospitality. We are working with environmental charity “Hometree”, a registered charity that plants a native Irish trees, and for as little as 50 cent per night guests this summer can offset their carbon footprint.


In ainneoin na ndúshlán a bhí roimh thionscadal turasóireachta na Gaillimhe in 2020, tá cuideachta amháin i nGaillimh atá meáite ar theacht slán, beag beann ar gach rud atá ina coinne. Tá teacht aniar agus neart á léiriú ag Grúpa Fáilteachais Chonnacht sa tréimhse dhúshlánach seo. Is gnólacht teaghlaigh é an Grúpa atá lonnaithe i gCathair na Gaillimhe agus ba iad buaiteoirí Ghradam Sheosaimh Uí Ógartaigh in 2018.


It’s just over six months since we began or focus on turning the Connacht Hotel into a greener and more environmentally friendly business. Since then we have seen an amazing buy in from our team and countless benefits to the business The first step was to set up a Green Team with members from every department in the hotel. They were and are all tasked with making their own department more environmentally friendly as well as coming up with suggestions for the hotel in general.

We are so proud that we can show in the first 6 months of this year; 

Reduced our straws by 16%
Reduced our Paper usage by 19%
Reduced our Paper cup usage by 75%
Increased our recyclable waste increased by 20%
Reduced our Gas units by 4%
