As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetThe West Coast of Ireland is an exceptionally beautiful and unique environment and preserving its unique coastline and landscapes is of utmost importance to our business. Where possible, our excursions are made on foot and in cases when motorised transport is necessary to cover greater distances or reach remote locations, we use the minimum, we use low-emission rental vehicles or people-carriers.
In 2014 the Wild Atlantic Way was launched to help develop economic growth and enhance the experience of seeing this spectacular coast. We will be using part of this new route on our journey through County Galway and County Mayo. As a company we endeavour to support local environment protections. Locations are carefully selected and group sizes are controlled to limit any potential environmental impact.
As a company, we are very aware of the impact that plastic has on the environment and aim to minimise our use of single-use plastics in all aspects of our holidays.
All of our service suppliers are informed of our responsible travel policy which is clearly visible on our website.
OUT IN THE FIELD- Guests are encouraged to travel responsibly and we invite you to consider the following guidelines.
We give you comprehensive information on travel, health and any existing environmental concerns affecting the West Coast of Ireland before travel. For example,
Wherever possible our work is conducted electronically: we are totally web-based company and our paper use is minimal.
PeopleKnowing that tourism is an important source of income for the areas that we visit, our holidays predominantly visit places that are less frequented by tourists, avoiding the creation of “honey-pots” that can damage the environment and erode community heritage. In addition, our workshop visits Ireland during the shoulder season when visitor numbers are lower and our economic contribution is especially welcome.
We collaborate closely with local businesses and partners who have been carefully selected for their shared respect of our sustainable ethos and environmental values.
Where possible, food and drink are sourced locally from these producers, contributing to the sustainability of the local farming industry while keeping food miles to a minimum. There are passionate, hard-working farmers and food producers threaded into this coastal tapestry supplying local shops, cafés and restaurants and offering visits to their farms and homes to share the story of their food and products with visitors.
One of our aims is to experience and hopefully photograph what is an important part of this West Coast of Ireland culture especially during our time staying in our self catering accommodation.
