Living green initiative

A Sustainable Hotel – Our Sustainability & Environment Policy

At Clayton Hotel Galway we are on a journey to significantly improve our processes and practices to reduce any harmful impacts we are having on the environment and be an environmentally friendly hotel.

‘Living Green’ is Clayton Hotels environmental movement that inspires care for our environment as a “Way of Life” throughout our hotels; both for our people and our guests.

Trees on the Land & Biodiversity

We have recently embarked on a partnership with Trees on the Land, a not-for-profit cross-border initiative that plants young native trees across the island of Ireland. With Trees on the Land we intend to raise funds to purchase trees to plant in Q1 2022 through selling “Green” Meeting Room packages and donations from our guests and employees alike. To find out more or to make your own donation directly please visit Trees on the Land.
