Due to COVID-19 Corona virus pandemic and certain travel restrictions we are applying some temporary policy changes to some of our tours.

For Castle Leslie Equestrian Escape (IT-IRSR04-3):
Due to social distancing we will only be able to cater for intermediate to advanced riders until further notice.  Regrettably we will not be able to facilitate beginners or novice riders. 

It’s not mandatory that guests wear masks but we would encourage guests to bring them and wear if they so wish.

Here are some ways we are supporting our team:

  • Prior to returning to work, all employees will complete online training in line with our return to work safety protocol to include enhanced Covid-19 awareness with certification a prerequisite to a return to the workplace.
  • Ongoing training: Our employees will receive training on housekeeping, hand hygiene and Covid-19 protocols introduced within the hotel.
  • Our team members are trained and briefed to report all guests presenting Covid-19 symptoms on property to the Covid-19 committee. This allows us to take immediate action to assess their medical condition and ensure guests can self isolate in their room or be referred to a medical facility for further assessment.

Our team is practicing ‘social distancing’ from team colleagues and guests, where possible. The Health Service Executive is recommending that we keep a space of 2 meters between each other and to reduce the number of people we meet everyday.

Cleaning products and protocols: A cleaning and frequent sanitising program for all public areas and high touch points is in place throughout the estate. We use industry leading cleaning and sanitising products and protocols mandated by Irish and European authorities that have been approved for use against viruses, bacteria, and other pathogens.

Guest Rooms: All linen is washed to medical grade procedures. In light of measures required to minimise hard surface touch points in our bedrooms, steps have been taken to remove or modify various standard items from the bedrooms. Cleaning and disinfecting protocols to clean and sanitise rooms after guests depart and before the next guest arrives, with particular attention paid to high-touch items like remote controls, televisions, telephones, kettles, hair dryers, seat backs, door handles, light switches, table tops, ironing boards, safes, taps, toilet handles and seats. Should you require additional amenity items, these can be delivered promptly to your guest room by contacting our reception team.

Public Spaces: We have increased the frequency of cleaning and disinfecting in public spaces, with a focus on the surfaces of our front desks, lifts (and lifts buttons), door handles, public bathrooms, bar and table tops, chair rails, and shared computer keyboards. We are sanitising our restaurants, guest rooms, bar and public spaces with disinfecting fogging units.

Back of House: In the spaces where our employees work out of public view, our hotels are increasing the frequency of cleaning and focusing on high-touch areas like stairway entrances, locker rooms, laundry rooms and staff offices.

Temperature Checking programme: In the interest of mitigating risk to our guests and staff, anyone entering the Estate will have their temperature taken. This is a very quick process using a laser body temperature reader. If the temperature reading is 38 degrees Celsius or above, guidance will be given to seek further medical advice. Entry will not be permitted to the Estate.
