COVID-19 Policy

To all our guests, 


Whilst there have been many changes over the past few months, here at Knockranny, some things never change.Our goal to provide our guests with long lasting memories of their time spent with us is always to the forefront.


In our preparations to welcome you back to us, or on the occasion of your first visit, we have incorporated all the guideline issued by the Irish Hotel Federation, Failte Ireland, HSE,HSA and FSAI to ensure your peace of mind during your stay. Specifically, we have set up a committee to oversee the implementation of all measures adopted and are actively incorporating these into our procedures. We have always had a very extensive set of protocols around hygiene and food safety and any new procedures will serve to strengthen an already effective regime. In addition,we are proud to have been awarded the Failte Ireland Safety Charter Certificate.


In order to ensure a smooth transition for all, we would kindly request that all our guests follow the government guidelines current at the time of your visit and cooperate with us in the observation of social distancing and protocols relating to personal hygiene. We would also request that any of our guests showing symptoms of COVID-19 would reschedule your visit to Knockranny in order to protect all concerned. 

All our staff will be fully trained prior to returning to work in the relevant aspects of dealing with prevention of the spread of COVID-19. Following a review of the guidelines, our procedures and our physical space we will be using screens in some areas and staff will use PPE where required. Upon arrival we request that only one person per room approaches the desk to check-in. It may be a requirement for all guests to have their temperature checked at the check-in stage as a precaution and we would ask that guests understand the reasoning behind this and comply if requested to do so. Where possible please use card payment sand bills can be emailed rather than printed if requested. Porterage will be available but only on request. 


In order to reduce the amount of contact in the rooms, our accommodation team will service your room every second day on stays of 3 nights or more.

Our talented chefs have added some new items to our popular menu in the Brehon Bar and will continue to produce classic dishes in La Fougère. We are particularly looking forward to using as much locally sourced food as possible and have added new vegetarian recipes, some of which are personal favourites of our Head Chef, Seamus Commons.
