We are a Destination for Learning about Sustainable Community and Low Carbon Living

Cloughjordan Ecovillage is an award winning educational charity and international environmental NGO. One of our aims is to share with the wider community the lessons learned during the first fifteen years of creating and managing Ireland’s first ecovillage. A group visit here is stimulating, interesting — and also a great day out!
