Family owned and operated since 1986, county Galway’s Slieve Aughty family invites your family for an unforgettable holiday in the west of Ireland with something for everyone. The Three Towers Eco House and Organic Kitchen caters perfectly for families with children of all ages and even has a special purpose built family guest room that comfortably sleeps 4 or more. For large families, the Family Eco-Lodge features a cosy loft bedroom for parents and a downstairs bedroom with 2 bunk beds for the kids. Quality cots are available and fit easily in all rooms, and the centre keeps a few buckets of toys around for sharing.

When you’re not relaxing in your comfortable accommodation, horse riding, cycling, walking (with or without a donkey), golf, sightseeing and much more are possible. For small children, enjoy petting Sophie the sheep and the ponies and swing in the toddler playground.

Walk or ride to the Enchanted Forest, a hidden woodland of native trees where the fairy folk live and play. The fairy homes have beautiful doors, and Ruby the witch has her hut here.  Make sure you look up in the trees as fairy folk and forest animals don’t always keep their feet on the ground.
