Lough Key Boats Is a proud Sustainable Business, we play our part in protecting our environment.
As an independent, locally owned business, Lough Key Boats is determined to play our part in ensuring the survival of our unique park, lake, islands, its community, and its environment.
We also want to share our beautiful lake with as many people as possible and know that sustainable tourism helps to ensure the viability and prosperity of life in the locality.
We view ourselves as guardians of our beautiful locality, and we want to protect its natural beauty as well as its rich cultural and historical heritage.
Leave No Trace Principle and Practice
At Lough Key Boats we encourage our customers to follow the ‘Leave No Trace Ireland’ principles in our area.
As well as environmental protection, we are focused on economic development and social unity. We strive to balance an expanding tourism sector with the needs and priorities of this unique forest park, lake, and islands.
As an employer in the region, we also know that local employment is important and we are striving to expand our season over time and further benefit the local economy. All our directors and employees are from the locality. We recycle our rubbish, and we encourage our staff not to use one use plastics.
Lough Key Boats cooperates with other service providers locally, incorporating them into our various packages to ensure local revenue is maximised.
In the business itself, we use tin-free and non-toxic paint on our boats, and we use recycled material where possible. We promote the use of electronic tickets by providing an online booking system and our aim is to be completely paperless. We also measure all our fuel output and encourage our customers to use the toilets on the main shore rather than onboard. We stopped providing motor engines and instead we offer rowing boats and are looking to an alternative electric solution for the future.
Lough Key Boats are open to support any local initiatives that are environmentally friendly. We are happy to collaborate with local organisations that need support. We believe that together we will build and grow a more sustainable future.
