You’re not alone: in 2015, over a billion people travelled around the world. That’s 1/7 of the global population! As more and more people become tourists, this has had a marked impact on resources, ecosystems, and entire regions. Important cultural crafts and practices are in danger of being lost, wildlife is negatively impacted and pollution spreads.

So, what is Ireland doing to allow people to see the world without harming it? This is where sustainable tourism comes in!

What is sustainable tourism?

Sustainable tourism incorporates travel that is environmentally, culturally and ethically aware and aims to seamlessly integrate visitors into the local culture and environment – and you’ll see just how easy this is to do on the island of Ireland! When you travel sustainably, you get to experience a location in its most natural state and know that you are leaving it in the same way, for both locals and visitors to enjoy.

How can I travel sustainably?

If you want to travel sustainably, a little research is needed. Committing to staying in eco-friendly hotels, supporting local businesses and restaurants and buying products crafted in the region all help to support and sustain the area.

Where on the island of Ireland is good for sustainable travel?

Over here, you’ll find that our green fields, bountiful wildlife and blue seas are our pride and joy. In fact, our waters were long ago named Europe’s first Whale and Dolphin sanctuary! Far from the cities and towns, Ireland remains a largely unspoiled land - Mulranny, on Mayo's rugged coast, is a hidden treasure of spectacular landscapes and breathtaking views, coming as no surprise as the winner of Best Destination for Responsible Tourism.

Traverse the Causeway Coastal Route, and walk across the legendary alien landscape of the Giant’s Causeway. Wander down the Wild Atlantic Way, visit the immersive Doolin Cave (Gold Award, Best Natural Heritage Tourism), and experience the rugged beauty of The Burren (Silver Award, Best Natural Heritage Museum), where an alien landscape waits to greet you. Explore the bogs and hills of Ireland’s Ancient East, where 5,000 years of history flows beneath your feet with every step. Along these myriad routes, the very best natural experiences, local cuisine and true glimpses of life in Ireland can be found, savoured – and sustained.
