Flynn Hotels have high Covid-19 standards

AS THE world adjusts to new travel norms and expectations, The Flynn Hotel Collection has created a specifically designed programme to enhance the already stringent procedures in place in their response to Covid-19.

A famil- owned hotel group with four exceptional properties, The Flynn Hotel Collection is comprised of The Imperial Hotel in Cork City, The Newpark Hotel in Kilkenny City, The Old Ground Hotel in Ennis, County Clare and The Park Hotel in Dungarvan, County Waterford

The new programme entitled Because We Care is not only redefining cleanliness standards but also aims to support the guest’s personal wellbeing by using new, science-led protocols and service measures.

New technologies will include electrostatic sprayers with hospital-grade disinfectant to sanitize surfaces throughout the hotels.

Electrostatic spraying technology uses the highest classification of disinfectant recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO) to treat known pathogens.

Disinfect entire areas

The sprayers will rapidly clean and disinfect entire areas and can be used in a hotel setting to clean and disinfect guest bedrooms, hotel foyers, fitness rooms and all other public areas.

In addition, the company is testing ultraviolet light technology to check sanitization on things like key cards and any devices shared by team members and guests.

The Flynn Hotel Collection owners Allen, John and Pierce Flynn are delighted to announce that all four hotels have already appointed BWC committees that are working tirelessly ahead of the collection’s re-0opening on July 20, 2020.

A Because We Care training programme aims to educate the teams in all areas to not only commit to the highest possible hygiene standards but to be also mindful of the guest journey from reservation stage right through to the departure procedure.

This will be done in a thoughtful, attentive manner that balances guest safety with personal reassurance and comfort.

Makes us proud

Paul Beehan General Manager of The Newpark Hotel in Kilkenny says:

“Our Because We Care programme is going further on the commitments that we have made in recent years.

“We have established new Covid-19 protocols and standards for the re-opening which are not only in line with HSE, government and Irish Hotel Federation guidelines, but exceed these guidelines entirely.

“We ensure to do this whilst maintaining our sustainability vision and we will continue to do business in a way that makes us proud. Now more than ever we will support our local community.”

With a planned reopening date of July 20, The Flynn Hotel Collection is ready to Let our Family looks after Yours.
