How We Are Making Our Meetings And Events Spaces More Sustainable

At the Doyle Collection, we are working hard to continually improve the ways in which we can help lower the carbon impact of your event, no matter the size or scale.

The River Lee, Cork

Our luxury hotel in Cork cannot wait to welcome your group or event to our fantastic events space.

The Hub offers eight flexible spaces infused with natural light and views of this historic city, all with the latest conferencing equipment and dedicated concierge. Events at The River Lee are crafted to impress.

The River Lee is powered by renewable energy and meetings are supported by Clickshare technology to make it easy to share work and projects across screens without having to print documents.

During your event, why not pre-order a fully plant-based menu to support your company’s move to Net Zero? Pre-ordering allows for minimum food and drink to be wasted. Nondairy milks are also available for tea and coffee on request.

The River Lee has an onsite water filtration system to deliver still and sparkling water in reusable glass bottles for your event, therefore reducing single use plastic waste. As an added option, you can also contribute to our climate-action charity partner, Tree Aid, to offset the travel to your event.
