About Castlemartyr Resort

Castlemartyr Resort is a luxury hotel near Cork, Ireland, recently named as the best 5-star hotel in Ireland at this year’s Irish Hotel Awards. The 18th century classic manor house is nestled in 220 acres of mature parkland and lakes and offers 3 dining options, as well as the best of today’s facilities including gymnasium, spa and an 18-hole golf course.

Guests can enjoy all the tranquil space Castlemartyr resort has to offer, all on the doorstep of Cork city.

 

The challenge

Castlemartyr Resort wanted to embark on a key business initiative to install electric vehicle chargepoints for its guests. They wanted to promote the EV charging facilities at their hotel, to attract more guests and enhance guest facilities for the growing population with electric vehicles to charge while they stay.

As the resort moves towards becoming net zero and reducing their reliance on the Grid, installing EV chargers was the first step in their journey to doing this.

As Castlemartyr is a luxury resort, all work had to be completed between 9am and 5pm so guests weren’t disrupted during their stay.

The solution

We funded, supplied and installed a full EV charging system of 4 x 22 kW fast chargers at the hotel. We also installed additional infrastructure for extra chargers, which are to be installed early 2023.

The resort wanted to futureproof their business, and by installing the additional infrastructure while the other chargers were being fitted, it means there will be less disruption when they come to install additional chargepoints next year.

Due to the requested location of the chargepoints vs the location of the distribution board, there was a large amount of civil works that needed to be carried out to ensure the client was happy with the positioning of the chargepoints.

 

The results

Castlemartyr were extremely happy with the works that were carried out.

As well as the 4 chargepoints, they also have access to the eCharge software which allows them to set tariffs for different user groups such as staff, visitors and the public.

It allows them to be in full control of the electrical infrastructure by restricting access and setting charging hours. In addition to this, it also gives live updates on charge status, consumption and network and even monitors CO2 savings to boost green credentials and keep track of their carbon footprint.

Dealing with eEnergy was a very easy and straightforward process. From initial contact to project completion everything was communicated in a clear and concise manner. The proposal was well presented, the handover and training provided was a very high standard, the project was delivered on time and the workmanship surrounding actual install was excellent with great respect show to the property.
