Covid-19 Care Policy

We have adapted and enhanced hygiene practices and are familiar with official guidelines as outlined by H.S.E. & H.S.A., W.H.O. & F.S.A.I.

I, Mary Aston, co-ordinate and am responsible for implementing Covid 19 Policy.

We cover:-

• Hand and Respiratory hygiene & Physical distancing requirements (through handwashing, hand sanitizers & official signage) within the premises

• Use of P.P.E. where necessary (i.e. masks, gloves & aprons)

• A cleaning/disinfection regime throughout the guest house, as per H.S.E. guidelines.

Breakfast Policy

Because of Covid 19 we will be staggering breakfast times. We will be limiting the number of people in the dining room together at any one time. This will be adapted daily depending on our guests’ needs.

We ask guests not to delay over breakfast. If you could please allow 40 mins. over breakfast to facilitate cleaning between times and consider other guests coming in later.

Thank you for your co-operation.

Even if we can’t shake your hands we want you to feel very welcome. We have been advised not to have brochures or folders in the guest house due to Covid 19.

PLEASE feel free to ask us anything about the area or its amenities, or any information at all that you may need and we will be happy to be of assistance.
