Cloughjordan Eco Village

Cloughjordan Ecovillage
Innovative New Community In Tipperary

 Cloughjordan Ecovillage brings together a diverse group of people creating an innovative new community in Tipperary. We’re doing this a way that is democratic, healthy and socially enriching while minimising ecological impacts. Our 67-acre site includes beautiful and fertile land where we grow our own food, and plants and trees to promote biodiversity.
»  More than 50 low energy homes and work units so far
»  A solar- and wood-powered community heating system
»  50 acres of land for allotments, farming and woodland
»  A green enterprise centre and hi-spec broadband
»  An eco-hostel for visitors
»  A nearby train station and community farm
I had a quick walk around here recently. But I had just missed a regular tour and didn't find out very much about the place. So I checked out the the village website and invite you to do the same!
