Ireland’s Blue Book is delighted to announce that Gregans Castle, Co. Clare has been honoured for a “Green Initiative” for a “Commitment to Sustainable Gastronomy” at the 2021 Michelin awards.
This distinction highlights restaurants at the forefront of the industry when it comes to their sustainable practices and who act as role models to all. They hold themselves accountable for both their ethical and environmental standards, and work with sustainable producers and suppliers to avoid waste and reduce or even remove plastic and other non-recyclable materials from their supply chain.
Gwendal Poullennec, International Director of the Michelin Guides says “Launching a brand new distinction dedicated to sustainable gastronomy shows that our recognition of restaurants goes beyond the search for the best cooking. It enables us to also turn the spotlight on those with a great sense of responsibility towards the environment.”
Gregans Castle is a founding member of The Burren Ecotourism Network.
