About IE

Ireland Ecotourism is a guide to responsible tourism in Ireland. All businesses listed on this website are aware of their carbon footprint. Each tourism operator is audited independently with a common aim to see tourism on the island of Ireland have a positive impact on the environment. We like to think we are the eyes and ears of eco conscious travellers as we ourselves are experienced global travellers having spent time working and travelling in Europe, South America, Asia, Africa and North America.

Our aim is to make the island of Ireland a premier global Ecotourism destination.

We operate an Eco star system ***** to indicate the level of ecological awareness practiced by each tourism operator.

One star * indicates a tourism operator offers a minimum standard of ecological awareness but has an environment development plan in place. This includes separation of recyclables in-house, use of CFL or LED lighting.

Five star ***** indicates a tourism operator produces their own electricity on site from a micro renewable energy system, offers organic food, uses eco cleaners and toiletries and will have a native woodland planted as part of their enterprise. LED lighting. A tourism operator that is ***** Eco has a carbon positive footprint and is in essence a carbon sink.

We encourage feedback from eco travellers to help businesses improve their service or maybe you would like to commend a B&B or Eco Hostel that you stayed in.

Enjoy Éire ... The Emerald Isle.
