The Business Eye Sustainability Awards honour businesses and leaders in Northern Ireland who drive impactful, sustainable change within their sectors, recognising their positive contribution and efforts to create a more sustainable environment for all.

Nestled amidst the slopes of Slieve Gullion in County Armagh, Killeavy Castle Estate has pioneered the integration of hospitality and sustainability across its hotel and 365-acre estate since its inception.

The estate’s dedication to eco-friendly practices since it opened its doors in 2019 has consistently led the way in eco-tourism, illustrating its commitment to sustainable operations.





Speaking about the award win, Mick and Robin Boyle, Owners at Killeavy Castle Estate, comments, “We are thrilled and honoured to receive this award.

“At Killeavy Castle Estate, sustainability is a core value that guides everything we do.

“From our day-to-day operations to our conservation efforts and farm-to-fork ethos, we are committed to championing eco-tourism and preserving our natural heritage while creating meaningful experiences for our guests.

“This award is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our entire team at Killeavy Castle Estate.

“We are committed to continually raising the bar in sustainable hospitality and tourism, and this recognition motivates us to continue our journey towards a more sustainable future for generations to come.”

This award is the latest accolade that Killeavy Castle Estate has received in recognition of its sustainable achievements, including a comprehensive zero-waste food program, a strict single-use plastic minimisation policy, and extensive recycling initiatives.

Killeavy Castle Estate has invested in sustainable energy solutions throughout the hotel and is set to embark on a significant solar panel project in the coming months which will help it meet its goal of maintaining the carbon neutrality, based on scope 1 and 2 emissions, the estate achieved in 2023.
