Code of Ethics

Businesses wishing to become approved under the Welcome Standard are required to comply with a Tourism Code of Ethics. This underpins the standards and identifies practices and procedures that are common to all successful, responsible and sustainable Irish tourist accommodation businesses.

The Code of Ethics ensure that all the activities of the business are conducted with respect for the artistic, historic and cultural heritage of Ireland and where possible, integrate with and benefit the local community and environment, as well as ensuring excellent standards of customer service.
