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

For Donegal North Explorer Ride (IT-IRDON1):

The hotel and stables had all the safety measures in place in 2020 and will continue with these measures when they open again this year.
At the moment the hotel is closed and we do hope to reopen in March but it will depend on the restrictions in place.
I guess for Modifying and Cancellation Conditions we will have a better idea once we are back open again.

All our team have received rigorous training and at all times there will be a Covid representative on the premises should you have any queries or concerns. Further, we have a Covid-19 Operating Team who will monitor and amend the policies as required to ensure that we always have your safety and that of our team in mind.

• We have increased the frequency of cleaning and disinfection of all areas with special attention given to high use touch points in line with recommendations from the government.
• Hand sanitising stations have been set up in all entry and exit points of the hotel.
• Some of our team may wear PPE if deemed necessary for some tasks and in accordance with the hotel’s policy.
• In addition to the advised hand washing routine, our team will be using hand sanitisation gels rated above 60% alcohol.
• All linens and towels have been laundered to the highest standard in accordance with HSE guidelines.
• All areas of your accommodation have been deep cleaned and sanitised by our trained team with enhanced cleaning of high use touch points.
• Some items such as reading materials and soft furnishing have been removed for health and safety reasons but don’t worry, we are here to help in whatever way we can.
• Lobby and Restaurant areas will be rearranged to adhere to social distancing measures and our team are implementing new reservation procedures in line with the recommended
• Breakfast will be an A La Carte menu served at the table and it will require pre-booking. Or why not treat yourself to breakfast in bed? You deserve it!
