The two-hour workshop in The Brehon Hotel this Friday (October 21) takes place from 10am to 12pm and 2.30pm to 4.30pm, and will provide vital supports and information to local tourism businesses.

They'll be hosted by energy experts who will provide businesses with immediate, low-cost actions that they can take to improve their energy efficiency and reduce energy bills.

This is open to all tourism businesses across the county who register their attendance with Fáilte Ireland.

“The challenge for businesses in managing their energy costs is immense and Fáilte Ireland recognises that tourism businesses are being hit particularly hard by the energy cost challenge. In response to this, Fáilte Ireland is conducting practical in-person workshops nationwide to offer immediate guidance and information to businesses to help reduce their energy bills,” Jenny De Saulles, Director of Sector Development at Fáilte Ireland, said.

“Using less energy more efficiently is the most cost-effective and practical way for businesses to take action and we will be showing businesses how to implement easy changes. Created with energy experts these workshops are designed to offer businesses practical advice and best practise examples that can be adopted quickly for immediate effect. All tourism businesses in county Kerry are welcome to attend so we are encouraging businesses to register today.”

The O’Donoghue family entertained the entire group with a range of fascinating stories outlining the history of the lakes of Killarney and Killarney National Park.

The group set out from Lord Brandon’s Cottage and walked the 11K through the iconic Gap of Dunloe, with two AADI families and their dogs taking part in the full walk.
