Cloughjordan Ecovillage, founded in 1999, is Ireland’s first ecovillage. The ecovillage is located in Co. Tipperary. After almost a decade of co-operative development, our first residents moved into their homes in 2009.
Our aim is to serve as a model of sustainable living, that can be an education, enterprise, research and service resource for all. We work to; minimise pollution to the air, water and land; demonstrate a new approach to rural regeneration; facilitate systems whereby people can create local and sustainable work; and provide for the cultural, artistic and non-material needs of the residents of the village and surrounding community.
We are pioneers in sustainable living. This has led to a number of achievements such as: being a finalist in the 2020 Transformative Cities awards, President Michael D. Higgins opening our Amphitheatre in 2017, being selected for the European Union’s MILESECURE-2050 project, and winning a gold medal in the 2013 “Green Oscar’s”.
