Iveagh Garden Hotel

Andrea Smith, in The Lonely Planet, writes:

Dublin’s newest accommodation offering, Iveagh Garden Hotel, will source its energy from an underground river that runs 50 metres below the hotel.

This makes it the first hotel in Europe to develop a unique low energy system that creates the lowest carbon footprint possible. The four-star hotel in the Irish capital opened this week on Harcourt Street, a renowned Georgian street.
