The Maritime Hotel and our Green Footprint

It used to be true that a hotel could put out a sign that says” please don’t make us wash the towels” and that would be enough to call yourself “green”.

  • But here at The Maritime Hotel, we are committed to conserving resources and saving energy in many different ways.
  • We are a Gold Medal accredited Green Hospitality Award Member. This programme recognises businesses that make an effort to take care of the environment.
  • The water in our hotel bedrooms is purified through our seven stage filtration system into reusable glass bottles, eliminating the need for disposable plastic bottles.
  • We compost all our waste food with a very efficient system that turns bio degradable waste into peat free, environmentally friendly compost.
  • The hotel operates almost exclusively on energy saving bulbs, using timing and motion sensors in areas that would be unoccupied for certain periods.

We hope you have a very enjoyable stay we us in The Maritime Hotel in West Cork, home to some of the most breath-taking scenery in Ireland – we are all working hard to keep it that way.
