On June 29th, the hospitality industry across counties Meath and Louth will once again reopen their doors to welcome guests and locals back in a responsible and sustainable manner.  They have been closed due to Covid -19 since mid-March and are looking forward to doing what they do best, extending a warm welcome to both loyal and new customers to return and enjoy the wonderful hospitality, synonymous with the hotel industry in the Boyne Valley.

The hospitality industry across the Boyne Valley has used this time wisely.  Hotels have been busy painting, redecorating, cleaning and implementing a hygiene regime to the highest standards in anticipation of reopening to their valued guests.  Hotels have implemented best practice procedures in line with Failte Ireland’s Industry Operational Guidelines with employee and guest health and wellbeing to the forefront at all times. 

Hotels across the Boyne Valley have joined forces as a united voice together with Boyne Valley Tourism to ask people to ‘Support Boyne Valley tourism businesses as we reopen’.  They will offer the same exceptional service that they are renowned for. Each hotel has committed to a Safety Welcome for each guest on arrival at the hotel.  The priority of hotel management and staff is to make guests feel welcome and safe during their stay.

Helen Leddy, Boyne Valley Tourism Hotel Representative said, ‘After spending months in lockdown, we are looking forward to seeing friendly faces return to have lunch out together, reunite with their families or have a hotel break away.  People will appreciate the little things like having a coffee or lunch out.  We have been working hard to implement disinfection procedures and prepare our hotels for reopening.  We are lucky that our hotels across the Boyne Valley are spacious and we are confident that we can implement physical distancing across our public areas.  Our hotels are located across rural towns and countryside, with lots of opportunity to get out for peaceful walks in the fresh air, while in the evening time, retreating to the beautiful surrounds of our restaurants serving fresh local produce from Boyne Valley Flavours.’

Located only 30 minutes from Dublin, the Boyne Valley is home to world class heritage sites and the grounds of each of the OPW heritage sites are currently open to the public.  These include Trim Castle, the Hill of Slane, the Hill of Tara, Oldbridge Battle of the Boyne Site and Old Mellifont Abbey.  Not only can you take the opportunity to visit these sites and the World Heritage Site of Bru na Boinne due to reopen from July 20th, but there are lots of fun family activities such as taking a trip on one of the Game of Thrones Boats with Boyne Boats or footgolf at Navan Adventure Centre.  Causey Farm near Kells is opening their brand new Ice Cream Adventure where families can enjoy a socially distanced ice cream trail and meet the farm animals from July 1st.

 

Cllr. David Gilroy, Chairperson Boyne Valley Tourism added, ‘our hotels are looking forward to reconnecting with customers. With so many amazing world class heritage sites in the Boyne Valley, we are encouraging people not to delay booking that holiday to the Boyne Valley any longer and to book that trip today.’
