Eco green is the best of Ireland's already famous forty shades. This guide will have you donning your hiking boots, packing your panniers, wriggling into a wetsuit, and galloping across beaches. Green places to stay include lakeside lodges, yurt camps, island retreats, eco-castles, grand houses with more than just grand green gestures, yoga retreats, community-run hostels, switched-on hotels and activity centres throughout the island of Ireland, North and South of the border. You can also find out how to get to all these places using public transport, encouraging car users to think again. Going green on holiday is not about having a guilt trip, it's about discovering a real Ireland, meeting great people, eating fine local food and seeing all the gems that Ireland has to offer, not just the emeralds.
★ About the Author ★
Catherine Mack is a travel writer specialising in green, eco, responsible and ethical tourism. Call it what you will, but just don't call it worthy. Catherine writes in a way that shows travellers their time away can be just as sustainable as other areas of their life, and just as fun (ideally more) than buying the mass tourism ticket. Although Catherine looks closely at the green aspects of travel, for her it's not all about solar panels and lightbulbs, calico or compost. It's about finding great, green places to stay, meeting like-minded people and discovering fun things to do which make holidays all we want them to be.
As well as writing for many UK and Irish publications, she has a Masters degree in Responsible Tourism Management. In her role as regular Ethical Traveller columnist for The Irish Times, this app is growing all the time, as Catherine travels around the country and shares news, people and places in her regular app updates. Her green notebook is always open for new suggestions.
