A deep commitment to local staff, produce and sustainable luxury

Press Up Entertainment takes its commitment to sustainable practices seriously. At all properties we use low energy lightbulbs and recycle all of our paper. We operate an environmentally-conscious laundry policy and use products that are kind to ecosystems wherever we can. We source food as locally as possible at all properties.

Local at Large

Press Up Entertainment is also supporting Irish-based craftsmen and women. We are working with a group of leading furniture designers dedicated to the responsible use of British woodland, to create a beautiful range of bespoke chairs.

Press Up Entertainment recognises its responsibility to respect the environment and is committed to achieve environmental best practice, where practically possible throughout its business activity.

We continually seek ways to conserve and protect natural resources, to minimise wastage of raw materials and energy, whilst providing a consistent and quality product and service to our guests. We conduct internal environmental reviews and annually assess our progress towards an improved environmental performance and revise as necessary.

Our customers and guests are made aware of our sustainability policy and to give them the option to help us achieve them. To ensure our team of staff are aware, involved and encouraged to be proactive in wanting to work to and improve our environmental policies.
