With Father’s Day taking place on Sunday June 17th Purchase.ie is on the search for Ireland’s No 1 Eco Dad. We have teamed up with the wonderful Garryvoe Hotel to offer a first prize of a 2 night weekend stay for 2 at this great East Cork resort.
Garryvoe Hotel has committed itself to actively managing their environmental footprint and taking specific actions to minimise carbon emissions and reduce waste. They have received the platinum award from Green Hospitality Ireland which is the highest level of certification a hotel can achieve and is only one of four hotels to achieve this certification level.
Myguideireland.com describe Garryvoe Hotel as “a four star stylish modern family-owned hotel situated on one of Ireland’s finest beaches at beautiful Ballycotton Bay.
Acclaimed travel writer Lucinda O’Sullivan says “We were in a glorious Junior Suite with a wonderful high cathedral ceiling. I could have stayed in that room for a week without leaving it – and lived on room service”
But there won’t be just one winner. We are giving away a second and third prize as well!
How to Enter the Father’s Day Competition
Simply Outline why you or the person you are nominating should be considered Ireland’s No 1 Eco Dad.
Does he treat you to a romantic candle light dinner (only because he wants to turn off the lights and save electricity)?
Does he leave the garden grass grow because he hates to waste diesel on the lawn-mover?
Perhaps he is a true green and is making an honest effort to minimise his carbon footprint and likes to lecture others on doing the same.
Whatever the reasons let us know by submitting you entry in the below comment field. We will pick the winners based on what we feel are the strongest entries.
Closing date for entry is Thursday June 14th. We will announce the winners on Friday June 15th
