Three Towers Eco House & Organic Kitchen Approved to the Good Food Ireland Collection
We are delighted to welcome The Three Towers Eco House & Organic Kitchen at Slieve Aughty Centre, Galway to the Good Food Ireland Collection.
It’s time to put down the phone, turn off that pesky email and head West for an exceptional Eco experience at The Three Towers Eco House & Organic Kitchen at Slieve Aughty Centre in Loughrea, Co. Galway. This unique lodging is more than happy to welcome the world-weary traveller who is looking to leave behind the hustle and bustle of modern life in favour of reconnecting with nature and the seasons.
Founded by Esther Zyderlaan and her family, including husband Hugo and daughter Merel, the Three Towers in its humble beginnings represented a desire for a more sustainable life for Esther and Hugo who moved to Galway from their native Netherlands after purchasing eight acres of land. First and foremost following Esther’s passion, an organic garden was created. Not long after a small herd of goats were obtained for their very own dairy. This proved a success, and to this day their cheeses and yoghurt are still being sold in one of the longest standing Galway market stalls. The growth of this venture also included a successful stable on the land.
With an ever-growing desire among the public to find authentic eco experiences, Esther dreamed of growing their sustainable endeavour into a retreat that would welcome people who would like to connect with nature and healthy living. This dream came to an abrupt halt in 2006 when the country was gripped by a global recession. What followed consisted of numerous sleepless nights and hard work to keep the business afloat. Hope came in the form of a rural development grant issued in 2012, which allowed Three Towers Eco House & Organic Kitchen to flourish and realise its potential. The Three Towers now welcomes a wide variety people and groups, including weddings, parties, workshops, organic dining and corporate events.
