Here at The Lodge at Ashford Castle we do everything we can to protect the environment and are committed to our community and dedicated to social responsibility. The threat posed by climate change and the need to preserve natural resources are some of the most important issues facing us today. Supporting local charities, conservation, preservation, nature, heritage and green initiatives including the personal development of each member of the Red Carnation team, is at the heart of everything we do.
At The Lodge at Ashford Castle, we are keenly aware of our responsibility to confront these problems head-on, and have instituted a Sustainability team to investigate and implement ways we can contribute to this global process. For example, The Lodge is now 100% LED – a project we began in 2016 and completed in late 2017.
Last Straw Campaign
Did you know that the world uses over 500 million unrecyclable plastic straws a day? Plastic straws are one of many types of plastic polluting our earth and harming our wildlife. We are passionate about eradicating single use plastics. The campaign strives to educate the public about its effects on our health, our environment, and our oceans.
Clean the World
Hand in hand
Me to We
Polytunnel to plate
We launched our third polytunnel at The Lodge, which enables us to enjoy fresh produce on site and guests can be involved too.
A polytunnel tour commences at 11.30am each morning alongside our chefs, to pick vegetables and forage other herbs that will then be prepared for their evening meal.
