Fitzgeralds Woodlands' commitment to reducing their carbon footprint
Minimising impact on the local and global environment with investment, innovation and intent
 Wed 11th May 2022


Caring for the environment is a central focus for the Fitzgerald Family. Their award-winning approach to minimising the impact of Fitzgeralds Woodlands House Hotel & Spa on the local and global environment can be seen right across the resort.

The Fitzgeralds keenly invest in environmental initiatives that not only reduce the resort’s carbon footprint, but also deliver significant financial returns, particularly in relation to a reduction in utility charges.

By installing a state-of-the-art combined heat and power system, the hotel decreased its electricity usage by 46% and gas usage by 14% over the course of five years, creating a more stable ambient temperature throughout the resort, Health & Leisure Club and Revas Spa.

The resort has its own well and waste-water treatment plant on-site, which means it is entirely self-sufficient. There is also an electric car charging point in the park.

All food-waste is composted and used for Mary’s Organic Garden and the organic farm, both of which are home to trees planted as part of the resort’s carbon offset programme. Mary’s Organic Garden supplies the kitchens with many of the seasonal ingredients found on the menus and also provides Dicks Bar with the herbs, edible flowers and other garnishes used for cocktails and other drinks.

Microbeads are banned from the hotel’s in-room toiletries and Revas Spa and staff right across the resort are working towards eliminating single use plastic.

The Fitzgeralds have been proactive in sharing their knowledge and expertise in this area, working with other hotels to assist them to improve energy efficiency and reduce their carbon footprint. They have also partnered with two local schools to help them improve energy efficiency, helping them to access additional funding in support of environmentally friendly initiatives.
