Environmentally friendly, Eco-Tourism focused Holiday Accommodation

Eco-Tourism is defined as “Conservation orientated, primarily nature-based, providing a unique experience firmly grounded in sustainable principles and practices.” At Dromard, we try to be conservation conscious, and energy efficient, and to appeal to those with an interest in an environmentally friendly holiday.

Here are some of the ways we do this:

WOODWARM = SUSTAINABLE ENERGY

Your heating and hot water are from a woodstove, fuelled by timber obtained by careful woodland management. This has lower carbon emissions than oil, and is sustainable. Clive has awards for farm conservation, woodland management, and has been Ulster winner of the B.G.S Countryside management Awards.

Along with managing existing woods, lots more pockets have been planted, and some unusual tree species. The Woodwarm project has been supported by the E.U. Inter-reg .111 A Programme for Ireland/N.I, through the Green Box, and its implementing agents, Border Action and DARD. To learn more, contact The Green Box at www.greenbox.ie

We also recycle glass, tin, plastic, card and paper, and use low energy lighting where possible.

SOLAR POWER

In Spring 2015, sixteen solar panels were added to the south facing roof of the main farmhouse, to increase use of renewable energy at Dromard.

TRAILS & WALKS

We have developed two walks to allow our guests access to the wood and shore land , where the lake is bordered by damp pastures, ferns and native Irish woodlands which provide a haven for wildlife. On one walk, tree species have been labelled.

The area supports many species of plants and animals and is designated as a Special Area for Conservation. The wood and shore land at Dromard is protected from livestock, since it also forms part of an Environmentally Sensitive Area.

Wildlife includes:

Badger, Stoat, Squirrel, Hedgehog, Fox, Irish Hare, Rabbit, and various types of bat including pippistrel and horseshoe.

Species include:

Mute and Whooper swan, Greylag Goose, Coot, Wagtail, Gold Crest, Song Thrush, Mistle thrush, Stonechat, Willow Warbler, Reed Bunting, Grebe and Buzzard.

FISHING

Lough Erne is a mixed coarse and game fishery. Game angling mainly takes place on the lower lough. Upper Lough Erne, with its maze of channels and islands is an ideal habitat for pike, perch bream, eel and roach.

We have outhouses where bait, and equipment can be stored.
