The team at the Woodenbridge Hotel and Lodge in county Wicklow are dedicated to implementing green policies across their operations, demonstrating their commitment to minimising waste, reducing water consumption and reducing energy consumption.

Reforest Nation

Ireland's oldest hotel is committed to protecting its beautiful surroundings for generations to come and just this month the hotel has launched a new partnership with Reforest Nation. For every booking made directly on the website they will plant a tree with Reforest Nation, helping guests to enjoy a sustainable stay in the heart of Wicklow.

The Reforest Nation mission is to make restoring biodiversity and fighting climate change easy and accessible to everyone by putting the planet before profit. They aim to plant one million native trees by 2024 with the help of people & businesses around Ireland.

Environment and Sustainability Award

In September the team were delighted to win the Environment and Sustainability Award at the 2022 Arklow Chamber of Commerce Ball, reflecting the many changes they have made to their systems and procedures to reduce carbon emissions.

50 Shades Greener

Having successfully measured their green key performance indicators and carbon emissions and implemented new systems and procedures to reduce impact on the environment, the team were delighted to be the first hotel in Wicklow to complete the 50 Shades Greener programme.

Commenting on their recent advancements and future plans, Managing Director Gerard O’Brien said, "We’re delighted to announce our partnership with Reforest Nation and it is another step towards our goal of achieving carbon neutrality. Last year we installed 74 solar panels and completed phase one of the installation of a modern heating control system. We hope to complete stage two of this project in January, to coincide with one of our largest ever bedroom refurbs.”
