Eco Travel Tips

  • Recycle the food containers you use each day at your accommodation. Bring a bag with you each day while travelling to carry same and pick up at least one piece of rubbish/trash during your daily adventure. You can consider yourself a litter volunteer for Ireland.

      • Buy a small battery recharger and use only rechargeable batteries.

          • Buy locally produced organic food and eat local. Support local family run businesses like restaurants and small shops.

              • Try hiking or biking as part of your holiday.

                  • Keep your showers short, and shut off the water while you're brushing your teeth. Couples, why not shower together :)

                      • Reuse your sheets and towels instead of having them changed every day. If the tourism operator doesn't have a card mentioning it say it to the owners and they soon will!

                          • Give feedback. Express your appreciation for eco-friendly programs it currently offers. Praise helps accommodation providers know they are doing a good job.

                              • Avoid plastic bags. Bring a reusable light cotton bag with you that is easy to fold in your pocket or put in your daily travel bag.

                                  • Bring a a reusable cup with you for take away coffees or teas while travelling.

                                      • Use public transport if you cannot walk or cycle the required journey each day.
