Organic Restaurant
We are delighted at Slieve Aughty Eco Centre to have received organic certification, joining only one other organic restaurant in Ireland and the only one in the west. This means that we use certified organic ingredients and a special effort is made to ensure the use of local suppliers. Merel and Esther run the Organic Kitchen at our Silver Certified Eco Resort awarded by Ecotourism Ireland.

Organic Garden
All of the salad greens and herbs used at the centre come from our own garden. In the summer the fruit garden provides berries and in the autumn the apple trees are heavy with fruit waiting to be made into our famous apple crumble.

Cafe & Wine Bar
Our wine bar is a cosy spot to while away the evening. Sit out on the decking with candles and fires or sit in our cosy bar or dining room. Enjoy our range of organic wine and nibble on some yummy tapas.

Pizza Party Fridays
Each Friday from June to September, we host a Pizza Party in the Italian garden by the hand-made clay oven for guests at The Three Towers Eco House and anyone wishing to join in from the surrounding community.
