Ecotourism Ireland is an organisation set up to stimulate the development of ecotourism in Ireland. Its label is approved as the national ecotourism label and it acts as an independent certification and standards authority in Ireland. Core to ecotourism and to the Ecotourism Ireland philosophy is the concept of environmental sustainability and the label has been developed in order to ensure that the environmental impacts of certified ecotourism products are minimised. The label also encourages proactive nature conservation and the promotion of local cultural values, while at the same time developing local economies and the long term viability of ecotourism destinations. The Ecotourism Ireland label helps you to find high quality experiences and guarantees a high quality of delivery of services – it reassures you that the holiday and travel experience is the genuine article.
As members of the Burren Ecotourism Network, we subscribe to the Ecotourism Ireland philosophy.
