Aidan’s Island near Westport has been nominated for the European tourism sustainability award "GrINN Awards 2022" - organised by Quartz Inn Hotels - in the categories of 'Best Sustainable Accommodation in Ireland', 'Best Luxury Eco Accommodation' and 'Best Sustainable Villa'.
Recycling, reducing food wastage, banning single-use plastics, installing water-efficient toilets and showers or using 100% renewable energy are some of the sustainable measures carried out in this property and the reason why they have earned these nominations at a European level.
The main objective of the organisers of the awards is to promote good sustainable practices in the hospitality sector and to increase general awareness of the impact of hospitality and tourism activities on the environment.
Hotels, pubs and other establishments and tourism leaders from 23 European countries have been nominated and the finalists will be announced in the coming weeks after the jury deliberation. The winners from each of the 50 categories will be chosen among all finalists after a public voting process.
