Experience the west of Ireland

with a small carbon footprint.

Make your holiday make a difference! A green family holiday at Slieve Aughty Centre promises comfort, fun and choice, all with a minimal carbon footprint by you and us. Be a part of a growing trend to care for and protect the planet we depend on without sacrificing quality.

A family green holiday begins with your booking. Do all your booking and payments online. Use our transfer information page to plan your arrival by train and ferry and avoid air travel. If this is not an option, use public transport once you arrive in Ireland. We can even have road worthy bicycles waiting for you upon your arrival for cycling enthusiasts.

Stay in The Three Towers Eco House or Family Eco-Lodge, both of which are eco friendly accommodation. Food at the centre is cooked fresh with organic ingredients grown on the farm or locally-sourced, but if you prefer a self-catering option this is possible from September to June.

Although the accommodation is lovely, we’ve got a fantastic menu of activities to get you out and about. These may include:

  • organic gardening
  • entertainment at the local pub
  • horse riding
  • guided/self guided walks
  • cycling trails*
    visit the Enchanted Forest
  • outdoor survival skills
  • recycled art
  • visit to a local attraction*

and more!

With choices for each day, there is something for everyone and lots of variety. Email us for more information and availability.
