Environmental, Sustainable and Social responsibility at the Dingle Skellig Hotel
Here at the Dingle Skellig Hotel our commitment to our responsibility to the environment, our planet and our community is at the heart of our values. Our aim is to understand, control, monitor and reduce our use of water and energy as well as reducing our production of waste.
We have implemented a number of actions within the hotel and each of our department heads lead their team on fostering and embracing these values.
