There is minimal tourism within North Tipperary and few local jobs. By bringing people to the area we directly assist in job creation by the employment of full-time staff. We encourage our guests to visit local attractions and restaurants, thus indirectly assisting in local job creation. We are conscious of food-miles issues and source local organic and free range produce. All repairs, maintenance, and farming assistance are provided by local people.
We reduce, re-use and recycle. We compost all vegetable waste, we avoid buying heavily packaged products where possible, and we re-cycle glass, plastics, paper, cardboard, tins, cans, batteries and electrical products.
Because our water source is a private well, we are very conscious of the need to conserve water, especially in the Summer. We conserve rain-water for our horses. We steam clean within the house. Please do not ask us to send you a brochure because, in accordance with our paper free policy, all information about our Centre is available on our website! We are in the process of planting several acres with native broadleaves under the EU Natural Woodland Scheme.

You can trust responsibletravel.com reviews because, unlike many other schemes, reviews can ONLY be written by people who we have verified have been on the holidays. In addition, we don't run these holidays ourselves - our only interest is giving you the best independent advice.
