Green Policy

As a tourism business in Kerry we at Wayside are conscious of the impact that our business and our guests have on the environment. We are committed to minimising this impact whilst maintaining an excellent level of service for our guests and not compromising the quality of their holiday.

We aim to:
  • Comply fully with all relevant environmental legislation.
  • Minimise the consumption of fossil fuels through reducing the use of electricity and oil in our property for heating and lighting.
  • Ensure that any new purchases such as electrical appliances are at least 'A' rated and are well maintained.
  • Minimise the flow from cisterns, taps and showers by installing new efficient systems or displacement devices.
  • Cut down on the amount of waste we produce and where this is unavoidable reuse and recycle as much waste as possible, taking advantage of the local council services and facilities.
  • Change to greener products and supplies such as fair-trade teas and coffee, sustainable paper items and eco friendly cleaners.
  • Be of value to the local community through participation in local groups, events and encouraging charity donations.
  • Encourage low carbon travel and activities by providing local walking, cycling and public transport information for our guests as well as highlighting excellent watersports and nature trips that Kerry is famous for (Skellig Trips).
  • Encourage our guests to experience the best regional food (Kerry lamb, Clonakilty black pudding etc) and culture (Cahersiveen Festival of Music and the Arts, Kenmare Walking festival).
  • Continually improve our environmental performance and also be recognised by the Green Tourism Business Scheme (

Green TourismWe hope that our guests appreciate our unspoilt part of Ireland as much as we do and that they will help us maintain its natural beauty.
