Falls Hotel & Spa

The Falls Hotel & Spa is a family run hotel at the gateway to the Burren UNESCO Geopark in County Clare. Installing a hydro-electric turbine on the river adjacent to the hotel has provided the Falls hotel with up to 70% of their annual electricity requirements since 2018. In March 2021 the hotel was declared a carbon neutral property by Green Hospitality and awarded their GreenMark recognition.

Lidl Ireland

Lidl Regional Distribution Centre is home to one of Ireland’s largest rooftop PV arrays. The system incorporates over 4,000 panels spread across an area of 10,000m2 and provides 25% of the buildings annual electrical requirements. In addition, a heat recovery system from the refrigeration system provides underfloor heating, natural light is maximised and a rainwater harvesting system accumulates 1million litres of water annually.

We are absolutely honoured to win the award for Innovative Deployment of Renewable Energy from the SEAI. We would like to thank our green team within the hotel. Without the green team, this wouldn't have been able to happen. The McCarthy Family for their vision in the hydro turbine project and our locals within the area, who have all been very supportive of the project.
Sharon Malone, Falls Hotel & Spa
