Unlocking Sustainable Sleep: A Dreamy Partnership with Hastings Hotels


In a world where rest often takes a backseat, celebrating the essence of a good night's sleep becomes more significant than ever.

World Sleep Day (15th March) emerged as an initiative aimed at raising awareness about the importance of sleep health on a global scale. With its mission rooted in promoting healthier sleep habits, World Sleep Day underlines the profound impact of quality rest on individuals' overall health and quality of life.

Hastings Hotels stands as a shining example of sustainable sleep initiatives in the hospitality industry. Through partnerships with esteemed Irish brands Vision Linens, I AM SELF-CARE, and Woolow, Hastings Hotels is revolutionising the guest experience, prioritising both comfort and environmental responsibility. These partnerships reflect a shared commitment to sustainability and ethical sourcing, supporting local home-grown businesses, and setting new standards for eco-conscious hospitality.

Central to our commitment to sustainable sleep is our acclaimed "Perfect Night’s Sleep" package. Guests can be treated to a luxurious experience enhanced by locally sourced, eco-friendly amenities, handpicked to provide the best Ireland has to offer. From the premium bed linens by Vision Linens to the handcrafted wool pillows from Galway-based Woolow, every element of the package embodies comfort, quality, and sustainability. By prioritising natural materials and ethical production methods, we want to ensure that guests enjoy a restful night's sleep while minimising their environmental footprint.

Vision Linens is a pioneer in the creation and craft of premium, 100% Irish cotton linen. Whether in the heart of Belfast city centre at the Grand Central Hotel, or enjoying luxury on the outskirts of the city at the Culloden Estate and Spa, Vision Linens’ sumptuous 300-thread count linen ensures a comfortable and quality night sleep.

Enhancing the comfort of Vision Linens is Woolow, a Galway based business, exemplifying the best in natural wool pillows. By seamlessly blending comfort and sustainability, Woolow's all-natural wool pillows promise a tranquil night's rest. Featuring a medium firmness and hypoallergenic properties, these pillows offer ideal neck support and thermal regulation, allowing you to completely unwind and awaken rejuvenated each morning.

Hastings Hotels also partners with I AM SELF CARE, a distinguished Irish wellness brand renowned for its artisanal aromatherapy creations. Crafting bespoke pillow sprays tailored for each hotel, I AM SELF-CARE blends 100% pure essential oils including lavender, ylang-ylang, rosewood, and vertivier to aid in the perfect’s night sleep. Free from synthetic fragrances and harmful chemicals, these eco-friendly sprays foster the perfect environment for a restful night's sleep.

Through the careful curation of ethically sourced and eco-friendly products, we aim to offer all our guests unparalleled comfort while championing a greener planet.

Through initiatives such as our "Perfect Night’s Sleep" package, Hastings Hotels inspires to reimagine hospitality with a conscience, where comfort and sustainability harmoniously co-exist, and by embracing eco-friendly practices and products, we can embark on a journey towards better sleep while championing environmental sustainability.
