Gold EcoTourism Ireland Award

We recently received a Gold Award from EcoTourism Ireland for our birdwatching, photography and skylark ecotourism experiences. This is  the only globally recognised Irish ecotourism award and shows our commitment to the environment.

We have been working hard to improve our environmental practices. We now compost all our food waste and return all our cardboard to the suppliers. We have switched to an electricity provider which primarily uses renewables. We continue to look for ways to reduce our environmental footprint and to improve the quality of our eco tourism experiences.

New Website and a Silver Ecotourism Award!

Welcome to our new look website, featuring a new section dedicated to Ecotourism on Inishbofin.

We are very proud to have been recently awarded a prestigious EcoTourism Ireland Silver Award for our ecotourism experiences, the highest ecotourism standard in Ireland. This is the first ever award on an Irish island. This shows our commitment to sustainable, environmentally responsible holidays which showcase the rich natural and cultural heritage of Inishbofin.

Our certified ecotourism experiences include our well established Birdwatching Breaks, Birds & Nature Photography and the Farming & Nature Skylark Experience. All Dolphin Hotel tours follow Leave No Trace principles for outdoor recreation. Inishbofin is embracing ecotourism and recently became Ireland’s first Leave No Trace Island. Exciting times ahead!
