Set in the beautiful mountains of Wild Leitrim Nuala is a fountain of warmth and local knowledge and works in tandem with local guides to provide walking & foraging holidays, electric bike tours and canoeing experiences whilst enjoying a great nights’ sleep in her all-mod-cons eco friendly cabin.
Spend Time on An Eco Farm at Crann Og
Marion, Flor and the gang at Crann Og have created a very special place in a beautiful setting and offer workshops, yoga and more at their working eco farm. Currently they have a number of weekends and events for all ages coming up which you can check out on their website at Crann-og.net

The Three Towers Eco House & Restaurant
Eco does not mean style must go out the window and The Three Towers at Slieve Aughty in Loughrea prove this well. Their unique Moor-inspired decor gives sense of opulence that is grounded by their responsible tourism ethics, no-waste policy and simply fabulous family friendly activities including a fairy woods and horse riding centre. Highly recommended. They have a number of great events coming up including an Easter festival not to be missed. Visit them at thethreetowers.com
Lot’s More Great Eco Destinations
The above are just a taste of what’s on offer for the responsible tourist and I can vouch for the inspiration an Eco break can give you, as you see the many (often small) ways that one can help the earth whilst having a really fabulous time. (check out my ecotour blog from last summer here >>)
