Enjoy a Greener Stay at the Limerick Strand Hotel
The 4* Limerick Strand Hotel recognises that our business has an important role to play in protecting and enhancing the environment for future generations and to help secure the long-term sustainability of the tourism industry. It is our priority to encourage our customers, suppliers and all business associates to do the same.
At the Limerick Strand Hotel we take the potential negative effects on the environment that the activities of our business can cause very seriously. In line with this, we will continually strive to improve our environmental practices in a range of areas including energy and water usage.
We have three standard electric charging stations in our hotel carpark, in the basement. We have partnered with Easy Go to provide hotel guests with access to chargers while staying at the hotel. Hotel guests who wish to avail of car charging are required to download the “Easygo” app. Please see the link for instructions on how to setup a Prepay or Pay as you Go account to use these chargers as they are a pay-per-use service.
The Limerick Strand Hotel is committed to reducing its environmental impact through better efficiencies in the use of energy and the minimisation of waste, packaging and water usage.
