Our COVID19 message

In line with the latest government guidelines, Actons Hotel is temporarily closed until further notice. We will continue to monitor these updates and will provide as much information as possible. Any existing reservations up until the end of May 2021 will be contacted by our team. We thank you for your continued support and we look forward to opening our doors again when it is safe to do so.


Health & Safety

We have been accredited with the COVID19 Safety Charter, endorsed by Failte Ireland and the Government of Ireland. This involved all of our staff taking part in hygiene and safety control training, following the recommended cleaning and safety guidelines.

We have worked with the Irish Hotel Federation to develop comprehensive protocols and standards. Sanitisation stations have been installed in all key locations in the hotel and team areas. We carry an hourly touch point cleaning in all areas, all doors are held open where possible, and we have increased deep cleaning in all areas. You may choose not to have your room serviced during your stay, if so, please leave a Do Not Disturb sign on your door and inform reception. We will be happy to provide fresh linen and towels if required. 

Recommended PPE for our staff members is available including masks, increased handwashing stations for team members.


Social Distancing

We guide our guests and ask all guests and visitors to observe 2 meter social distancing. Floor markings and arrows are in place to allow smooth flow around public areas. Protective screens have been installed at reception and in Sidney's Bar. Access to the hotel lifts is strictly one person at a time or with a person from the same household. The use of stairs is encouraged where possible. We have rearranged physical layouts in all areas to facilitate social distancing.

All guests and staff members are required to wear face masks while in public areas.

International Travel  

Ireland will be following the European Union’s coordinated approach to travel restrictions in the context of COVID-19. This ‘traffic lights’ approach provides for regions across the EU and the UK to be categorised as green, orange, red or grey on the basis of the risk levels associated with COVID-19. A combined indicator map is updated weekly by the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC), based on agreed criteria, including the 14-day cumulative incidence rate, testing rate and testing positivity rates. You can view this traffic light system here.

Prior to traveling to Ireland, passengers should check the Irish Government’s travel advice website for full information on these requirements.

 If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us enquiries@actonshotelkinsale.com or +353 21 4779900. 

We look forward to welcoming you back soon and in the meantime, stay safe.

Kind regards,

Tomás Wrixon

General Manager
