Keeping You Safe

Failte Ireland in conjunction with Irish Government bodies, Health Service Executive and the Health & Safety Authority created Guidelines for the safe reopening of the tourism & hospitality sector. All tourism businesses must implement these guidelines into their operational procedures and must ensure they are taking the required precautions to prioritise the safety of visitors and staff. All CGH partners are following these guidelines and we are continuously monitoring this.

The following are the 10 Common safety and additional hygiene measures being implemented across the Irish tourism industry:
Plexiglass shielding screens
Screens installed in areas where the minimum distance can’t be guaranteed – i.e. reception areas.
Staff COVID-19 training
All staff are trained according to the most up to date Covid-19 safety and hygiene measures.
Additional cleaning & disinfection measures
Hospital-grade specialised cleaning carried out regularly. Common areas, toilets and most-touched surfaces, such as table-tops, handrails, light switches, door handles, etc. will be disinfected frequently.
Reduced Capacity
Reduced capacity in accommodation, attractions, venues, and coaching is in place to meet the 2-metre social distancing guidelines that are in place at present.
2M Social distancing
Visitors will have to respect 2 metres physical distancing from non-household/group members. Floor signage will also be in place to promote this social distancing, especially in areas where people queue, or to encourage a one-way system.
Hand sanitiser stations
Available throughout, especially at entry and exit points, and reception areas.
Special COVID-19 signage
Regularly updated information signs showing the latest COVID-19 hygiene rules to respect.
Face coverings
Face masks are now mandatory on all public/private transport, shops, supermarkets, museums and visitor attractions. They must also be worn on entry; exit and when leaving your seated area in restaurants and pubs. CGH recommends for all group members to always have facemasks with them.
Contactless payments
Card/contactless payments are advised as much as possible.
Contact tracing
All businesses will require guest contact details. These will need to save for one month in case they need to contact you regarding a case of COVID-19.
You can play your part to help everyone stay safe and reduce the spread of COVID-19:
Sanitise your hands every time you enter or exit the hostel.
Wash your hands regularly throughout the day and especially after going to the toilet, coughing or sneezing.
If you sneeze or cough – please do so into a tissue and dispose of appropriately.
Social distance always between you and other guests – presently 2-metre social distance requirement in Ireland

Wear face masks in the common areas of the hostel (and in general in areas where is it not possible to meet the 2-metre social distancing)
Please do not block the entrance or corridors within the hostel – they must be kept clear at all times.
If you feel unwell - please do not travel and notify the relevant authorities. If you feel unwell in the hostel – please inform the hostel staff immediately, and they will quickly follow procedures to protect you and other guests.
