The Kingsley recognises our shared responsibility towards the environment. More than one-third of Irish bee species are currently facing the threat of extinction, primarily due to ongoing deforestation and the diminishing availability of flowers for bees to nest, pollinate and forage.
At The Kingsley Hotel, we hold a deep appreciation for the importance of bees in our ecosystem. To showcase our commitment, we sponsor a number of beehives here in Cork. These beehives currently house five queen bees and approximately 250,000 worker bees during the peak summer season.
The combined efforts of the industrious bees and our very own beekeeper, who is based here in the hotel, result in the production of The Kingsley Honey, which can be sampled in the hotel’s various catering outlets.
