The Salthouse Hotel, Country Antrim

Set in a magic location with impeccable style, The Salthouse Hotel is an eco spa hotel that takes the feel-good factor of environmentally friendly travel to a whole new level. Located on a blissful coastline, the team is focused on maintaining the environment. Everything is biodegradable, there’s no single use plastic, they have their own windmill to generate electricity, water comes from their own well and they have solar panels for heating. They actually have a negative carbon footprint, meaning they produce more energy than they use. They use the seaweed based VOYA skincare line (sustainably sourced from Co. Sligo), and food is indulgent but again, sustainably sourced, from across the local area.
