  • Social Distancing observed

Please be assured that the health and safety of our guests, family, staff and broader community is our utmost priority and so we will do all in our power to keep Drumcreehy Country House free of Covid-19. In contrast to larger hotels, this is somewhat easier for us due to the relatively small size of the property, where all operations including cleanliness and hygiene are overseen personally by your hosts.

Although handshakes are out of bounds for the moment, you can still be assured of a very warm welcome at Drumcreehy Country House. We are all finding ways of adjusting to the “new normal”. Operations will be a little different but we will still endeavour to provide you with an enjoyable and memorable stay at our house which is ideally located in a rural setting where outdoor activities are more accessible than in city centre locations.

Our level of hygiene and cleanliness has always been top priority for us and we have always enjoyed an excellent reputation in this area, as can be gleaned from past reviews of Trip Advisor and other platforms. Now with the threat of Covid-19, we are going even further to protect you and your loved ones.

In addition to the usual thorough cleaning carried out in all areas of the property, we will now regularly sanitize hotspots such as door bell, door handles, staircase banister, light switches, TV remotes, hairdryers, credit card machines and all surfaces which are regularly touched.

In line with health and safety measures outlined by Failte Ireland, decorative cushions have been removed from bedrooms as well as bathrobes, extra pillows, books, magazines etc.  However, please note that all of these items will still be available on request.

We will no longer be allowed to spoil you with our highly acclaimed breakfast buffet.  Instead, we will now offer your own individual buffet at your table. Your hot breakfast will still be cooked to order. In order to adhere to social distancing regulations, we will have a reduced number of tables in use at any one time and we will discuss this with you upon your arrival.

Hand sanitizer will be widely available throughout the house and we encourage you to use this on arrival and regularly throughout your stay ie., every time you re-enter the house, when entering dining room, tearoom, going up and down the stairs etc. We would also ask you to adhere to social distancing regulations which means keeping a distance of 2 m between you and other guests who are not part of your family unit.

Located in the Burren, Drumcreehy Country House is ideally located in an area which lends itself to social distancing. With its numerous beaches, walks and trails, you can get out and experience nature at its very best while still maintaining your distance from fellow travellers.  It is also ideal for road trips along the coast, through the Burren, to the Cliffs of Moher. We will still be on hand to give you advice – personal or digital.

We look forward to welcoming you to our home and rest assured, our family will look after yours.
