Breaffy House Resort Covid-19 Policy


Making Breaffy Safe


Making Breaffy Safe is our New Health & Safety programme at Breaffy House Resort to ensure we all work together with our guests, colleagues and suppliers to make the resort as safe as possible in these challenging times.  Soon we will be ready to open and look forward to greeting you with a warm smile and providing a genuine Irish Welcome in a safe and spacious location.


Our Making Breaffy Safe programme includes detailed Health & Safety Policies and Procedures which have been implemented in line with HSE, Government, and Irish Hotel Federation guidelines, and will be completed in advance of our reopening from our first lockdown on 29th June 2020.


These detailed Policies and procedures focus on health and hygiene in all areas of the resort and in all our dining outlets. Every conceivable effort is being made to ensure your time with us is not only enjoyable and relaxing but also safe thereby ensuring you have a piece of mind throughout your stay.


Most policies and procedures will be clearly evident throughout the resort, while others will be incorporated discreetly into our service. These policies and procedures will be rigorously adhered to and continually developed as the situation changes. At all times the wellbeing of our guests and colleagues will be our highest priority, so that you can relax and unwind with peace of mind at the wonderful 101 acre estate which is Breaffy House Resort.
