Comfort and Calm Awaits

Here at O’Callaghan Collection, we remain committed to the safety and well-being of our guests and associates as our utmost priority. We understand that travel is a necessary and rewarding part of our lives. We know that the current environment has affected how you make your travel decisions and want to assure you that we are prepared to warmly and safely welcome you back to our hotels. Over the past few months, we have taken precautionary measures to reassure you that while our hotels have always operated to the highest degree of health and safety vigilance, our cleanliness and hygiene protocols have been intensified following guidelines set by the government and protocols issued by local and international authorities. 

As we move forward, we have made some changes to the way we operate. Whilst we have tried to be as unobtrusive as possible, some of the guidelines will be highly visible throughout our hotels. Others will be combined into our service offerings, or even, in the case of our back-of-house changes, invisible to your eye, all to ensure that the new norms of safety and your peace of mind allow you to  enjoy your stay with us. All innovations and services will be implemented in advance of our reopening the hotels.

The great news is that we have already secured the industry standard “The Covid-19 Safety Charter” accredited by Failte Ireland. It is a government-endorsed initiative that is designed to give comfort and reassurance to our guests and staff that we are ready to re-open safely.
