EAT, DRINK AND SING IN KILLARNEY 

It’s all happening on the ground floor at The Ross




There has never been a better time to plan a trip to Killarney with The Ross having  just unveiled a vibrant new layout and look for this popular town centre Boutique Hotel.


Famed for its large arched windows, flooded with natural daylight and enviable views of the vibrant town, this welcoming space has been transformed from a traditional hotel reception into an entirely new concept called Polly’s. It is set to be a hot spot for coffee lovers and those looking for delicious bites and cocktails with a side of town spice! Hotel guests can now check-in at the newly renovated reception area located in the upper level of the hotel.


The name Polly holds significant local meaning, a name steeped in heritage, paying homage to the legacy of Pretty Polly, a tights factory that was once the heartbeat of the community and at one time employing over 1000 locals. 


Influenced also, by the regal swans of nearby Ross Castle they have created “Polly" a character of elegance and poise with the body of a woman and the wings of a swan and her vibrant, playful personality showcased throughout the menus.


“Pretty Polly holds a special place in the hearts of the community, and we wanted to pay homage to our fond memories of the factory. Customers would often tell us how a seat by the window in The Ross was the best seat in town, so we really felt the need to expand our offering and extend this valuable space to our patrons. We now have a fun and inclusive environment for all, where guests can sit and linger over breakfast or morning coffee, have casual lunch with family and friends or host a fun gathering in Polly’s Lounge” said Ciara Treacy, Hotel Manager.




The vibe at Polly’s changes from hour to hour. By morning, one can expect a bustling café of world-inspired porridge pots and pastries served with premium coffee blends from West Cork Coffee. As the day progresses, so too does their culinary offering with the use of Mediterranean-inspired flavours.  The lunch menu offers a host of vibrant tastes with flavoursome pittas, exciting hummus sharing platters and delicious soup and sourdough combos. Using the freshest local produce and a pinch of creativity the chefs have crafted dishes that are both delicious and mindful of the environment. From vibrant vegetarian creations to sustainably sourced meats and seafood, the menu is designed to cater to every palate, ensuring a dining experience that’s full of flavour and free from waste. 

   

Polly’s bespoke cocktail bar offers a menu that’s as innovative as it is environmentally mindful. 

The skilled mixologists blend premium local ingredients with depths of mixology experience to create drinks that dazzle the senses. Every cocktail is a piece of art, designed to deliver a memorable experience and all playfully tied back to the origins of the brand with names like "Tights in a twist" and "With love, Polly x". Polly’s is open for breakfast and lunch right through to late evening drinks 7 days a week.


Design wise, the incomparable Kim Partridge has created an eclectic look using a beautiful blend of rich teal and vibrant colours in a wide variety of textures, kaleidoscope patterns, and luxurious materials.  Standout design features include a bespoke marble cocktail bar encased by teal concave tiles, custom made Moroccan inspired furnishings, gold trim tables, cerulean blue tabletops, vintage lamps, and an iconic vibrant wallpaper. 

“Reflecting on its neighbouring Killarney National Park, Polly’s design draws inspiration from the local flora and fauna in a playful manner.  The use of a bold kaleidoscope of colours, pattern and texture creates a vibrancy to the interiors that are whimsical and fun.  The design approach reinforces Polly’s sustainability leadership by selecting suppliers which share the same ethos, for example the carpet supplier was chosen specifically for its tree planting programme which helps towards off-setting carbon omissions and selecting fabrics crafted with an element of recycled fibre”, said Kim Partridge.


On the mezzanine level you will find a newly introduced experience Polly’s LoungeKillarney’s first serviced Private Karaoke booth for up to 25 people. This fun room showcases sophisticated Kim Partridge design, complete with shimmering gold wallpaper, wraparound pink sofas, and a soundproof glass wall.  Offering unrivalled experiences, elevated finger food options, unique drinks packages and top-tier service, it is set to top the local charts.  Here guests can ‘shuffle’ their way through a catalogue of over 65,000 songs from trending tunes to Broadway belters and karaoke classics. Smartphones can be utilised to line up songs and take selfies that appear on the screen as their friends perform. Overall, a highly entertaining option for those looking to gather a gang for a luxurious singing session. Polly’s Lounge the perfect spot for a lively karaoke experience, private screenings, baby showers and special occasions. 

Polly’s is undoubtedly a fun and relaxing place to recount tales of old and to make new memories with friends and family.

TRIGON HOTELS LAUNCH INITIATIVE AIMED AT TACKLING FOOD WASTE 

New charter commits to reducing food waste by 20% and to reducing carbon footprint by supporting local producers 

Group Executive Chef at Trigon Hotels Alex Petit and his team are aiming
 to reduce food waste by 20%.  Picture: Brian Lougheed


Trigon Hotels has launched an initiative aimed at reducing food waste by 20% at its two properties in Cork - The Metropole Hotel and the Cork International Hotel.


Food waste is a significant contributor to climate change and the team at Trigon Hotels want to embrace new ways of doing things so they can work towards a sustainable food system.


The hotel group has created a 2024 Food Charter which outlines 10 key commitments that will help them to achieve their goal of becoming a greener hospitality partner.


Among the commitments is a reduction of food waste by 20%.  They will do this by monitoring closely all waste and its source and using every element of a product where suitable.  They also plan to introduce no-waste dishes by creating specific meals which do not generate organic or non organic by-product waste.


The team is committed to supporting local suppliers and using seasonality when designing the menus.  Trigon Hotels work with 25 local growers and producers and are always looking for new partners.  The menus at the two hotels include a map highlighting the local producers used such as McCarthy Meats in Cork City, Ardsallagh Goats Cheese in Carrigtwohill, Glenmar seafood in West Cork and the Chicken Inn in the English market.


Trigon Hotels is also aiming to increase engagement with local charity partners such as Cope Foundation which supplies fresh fruit, vegetables and herbs from the local garden.


The team plans to eliminate single use plastic and to reduce energy consumption in the kitchen by up to 20%.  The food charter states that they will reduce energy use by adhering to a strict equipment timetable and replacing defective equipment with new energy efficient equipment.


Alex Petit, Group Executive Chef at Trigon Hotels, said; "At Trigon Hotels, we understand the pivotal role the hospitality industry plays in shaping a sustainable future. The 2024 Food Charter is a testament to our dedication to reducing our environmental footprint and embracing innovative approaches to culinary operations. By implementing these commitments, we aim to lead the way towards a greener and more responsible future."


Carmel Lonergan, Director of Operations at Trigon Hotels, added; "Our 2024 Food Charter is not just a set of commitments, it is a reflection of our responsibility towards the environment and the communities we operate in.  By adopting these measures, we hope to inspire positive change within the hospitality industry and beyond.  Our teams will be meeting monthly to discuss and monitor our green actions.  Meanwhile, employee diversity and equal opportunities is at the heart of what we do and we are acting as one team on our path of positive environmental changes.”
