Covid Policy

Dear Guests,


  • At Atlantic Way Lodge, we know you are coming for a long-awaited relaxing break and that you don’t want all the worries of covid interfering with your stay.
  • As a former theatre nurse, I know how to prevent cross-infection and am taking all precautions to protect everyone, so once you arrive, you can step inside and begin to relax without any concerns.
  • I have carefully considered my mitigation measures and have made some minor changes to how the accommodation is presented for your arrival.
  • We are doing this so as not to detract from an enjoyable stay for you, and if you think something is peculiar, you will hopefully appreciate it is entirely for your safety.

Guests who’ve stayed during the pandemic have commended the cleanliness:

  • “Completely spotless, and it was very clear to see the effort she had gone to in keeping the place clean and sanitised, and we felt very safe and comfortable during our stay. 10/10 would recommend.” — Chloe
  • “The apartment was extremely clean and all Covid protocols followed.” — Lorna
  • “I had the best time! Beatrice had the place sparkling” — Jean
  • “What a gem. Extremely clean and excellent facilities. Really well thought out accommodation.” — Niamh
  • “The check in is seamless and although we haven’t met Beatrice in person she put together a nice compilation of things to do/see/eat in the area. The apartment was very clean and she has a good system in place to reduce the risk of cross contamination between guests.” — Vlad
  • “Great stay in Kilcar for a few days, a perfect place to explore Slieve League cliffs and loads of great nearby beaches. Super clean, perfect setup.” — Ronan
  • “Beautiful, sparkling clean cottage in the perfect rural setting with sea views! Beatrice was incredibly hospitable and helpful. A perfect family stay location. We hope to return some day” — Saoirse

What we’re doing & what your experience will be like

  • We continue to offer guests a contactless check-in and check-out.
  • You will still be staying in a beautiful location, just above the Wild Atlantic Way, with lots of free and socially isolated activities.
  • There’s mobile signal to check in with your loved ones and WiFi to continue those Zoom quizzes.
  • We continue to provide modern accommodation, with lots of style and comfort and without shabby chic, so you can rest assured everything is easily and thoroughly cleaned, and won’t be missed prior to your stay.
  • We have passed Airbnb’s Enhanced Cleaning protocol and implement this to the letter.
  • All outgoing guests are asked to leave things tidy and clean, to please dispose of their rubbish, recycling and anything that wasn’t in the accommodation upon arrival to the recycling or waste bins outside.
  • Please remember that guidelines may change before your stay and that our procedures could change accordingly.
  • As Covid-19 and its consequences are no longer unforeseen or unexpected, we would encourage all staycationers and any international travellers to ensure that they are adequately covered with a staycation/travel insurance, particularly during this time. Thank you for your kind understanding.


We understand that some of the above procedures or anything new we introduce may seem a little draconian, we don’t intend them to be, as we genuinely take your safety very seriously.

With this in mind, please exercise diligence to protect your nearest and dearest, and fellow travellers.

Thank you for reading, and your kind understanding. ❤️
