And now, with over 200 eco-certified tourism businesses there are more eco-activities on offer than ever before. From horseback treks to mountain hikes, from gentle garden visits to calf-busting cycling tours along the mountainous spines of Ireland’s many Peninsulas; from pedal-boats in our bay to trips to the awesome UNESCO site that is Skellig Michael, you can do as much or as little as you please.
Why not hire a mountain bike, go horse-riding, or kayak down a deep river with a green-certified activity provider. For an easier excursion, take a walk through one of Ireland’s six National Parks or one of our many luscious gardens.
If you’re a water-loving enthusiast you can imagine what Ireland can offer to visitors as the third largest island in Europe, blessed with a coastline of 1448kms and some of the finest beaches around. We award our best ones with either the world-renowned Blue Flag or the Green Coast Award. Have a look on www.beachawards.ie for the location of these beaches around the country.
