At Talbot Hotel Clonmel we are constantly working towards minimising our energy consumption.

Our hotel facilities are equipped with energy-efficient lighting, heating, and cooling systems.

Here are some examples of the measures & investments that we have taken:

  1. BMS system which monitors and controls the hotels heating.
  2. We have a CHP (Combined Heat and Power) Unit which is used to heat the hotel and the heating of our 20 Metre Swimming pool.
  3. There are 4 Electric Car spaces installed since 2022.
  4. All lights within the hotel are switched to L.E.D


We actively seek ways to reduce waste at every stage of our business operations.

Whether it's through recycling, or reusing materials, we're dedicated to minimizing our environmental impact.

Here are some examples of the measures that we have taken:

1. All our waste is separated into General, Food and Recycling

2. We are consciously working towards eliminating signal use plastics

3. Signage in our guest bedrooms to encourage guests to minimise water usage and use of towels.

4. Water intake and output of the hotel is monitored, to minimise leakage & water usage.

5. We encourage all guests in their hotel bedrooms to minimise the use of electricity by removing their keycard from the electricity slot as they depart the room.

6. The water we offer in our hotel bedrooms is now in recyclable cartons made from recycled materials.

7. In all of our bedrooms we offer the use lead pencils as opposed to pens.

8. All of our showers in the Leisure Centre are on a push button use, so as to minimise waste.

9. All stationary supplies purchased within the hotel for bedroom and meeting & conference use is on recycled paper.

10. We have recently started working with a local craftsman who reuses our delivery boxes for use within his company. We are delighted these boxes can be repurposed. 

11. One of our standout initiatives is the reuse of coffee grounds from our busy coffee machine. Recognizing the rich composting potential of used coffee grounds, we ensure that none of this valuable resource goes to waste.

We are delighted to offer these coffee grounds complimentary to all our guests. Whether you are a gardening enthusiast or simply passionate about sustainable living, you are welcome to take advantage of this eco-friendly initiative. By reusing coffee grounds, we contribute to reducing waste and enriching the soil, promoting a healthier environment for all. This can picked up from the main bar area.
