What is the Gleneagle Groups Policy on Covid-19?
As responsible hoteliers and event organisers and in line with our company values, the health and safety of all those who attend our events is our primary concern and priority. The Gleneagle Group has a designated team to coordinate our Covid-19 safety activities. We are committed to taking action and have implemented the following measures:
• We are assessing, monitoring and implementing recommendations and best practice from the WHO and HSE
• We have provided sanitiser stations throughout the buildings
• We have identified all common touch points and have implemented a thorough sanitisation of these points
• Extra public area staff have been rostered to ensure regular sanitising of commonly touched surfaces
• Our internal communications platforms are ensuring efficient flow of protocols and updates
• We have circulated HSE guidelines on personal hygiene and travel arrangements to all employees
• We have displayed HSE guidelines on personal hygiene throughout the hotel
• We have implemented full procedures for sanitising guestrooms including all touch points e.g. remote controls, handles, light switches
• We are committed to providing the additional manpower required to implement best practice procedures
All of our Bar, Restaurant & Function areas are spacious to allow for social distancing.
All unnecessary contact items have been removed from dining areas, all remaining items will be cleaned after each sitting.
In our public areas all of our taps are sensored to allow for contactless handwashing.
Our Carvery Sunday Lunch has been changed to table service, until further notice.
Takeaway menus are in place, with option to pay over the phone and collect outside the hotel main reception doors.
We are committed to playing our part in trying to prevent Covid-19 from escalating. We ask that our customers do the same and follow the HSE guidelines regarding personal hygiene and Covid-19

• Review travel guidance from your own country’s Department of Foreign Affairs and the Irish Department of Foreign Affairs
• Measures to protect against the spread of COVID-19 at mass gathering events
wash your hands properly and regularly with soap and water or an alcohol-based hand rub
cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve when you cough and sneeze
put used tissues into a bin and wash your hands or use alcohol-based hand rub
do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth if your hands are not clean
• Read available information and recommendations available on the mass gathering event’s website, social media pages prior to attending the event
• High risk groups - those considered to be at higher risk for COVID-19 include the following:

• Read distributed leaflets and signage when attending mass gathering events
• Follow the instructions of organisers and health personnel while at the event
