Cnoc Suain, Connemara receives highly coveted 2009 world travel award.
Cnoc Suain in Connemara was recently the highly prestigious and highly coveted 2009 Guardian/Observer world travel award.
A place quite unlike any other, where Irish traditions are alive and kicking”. This is how the Guardian Newspaper described Cnoc Suain, which was judged third in the world in the “Ethical Travel Award” section; Bulungula Lodge in South Africa, runner up, and Sandela Eco Retreat in Gambia, being awarded first place.
Cnoc Suain, a creative sanctuary in Connemara, has won both national and international awards. It is a celebration of a unique place, its people and its heritage, and is flagging the future direction and potential of ethical and sustainable cultural tourism in Ireland.
To quote again from Eco Escape Ireland, “Sustaining local culture is a vital part of developing a green tourism business. What makes Cnoc Suain unique is that it is not preserving the Irish language, music, cookery and craft in order to enshrine them. Charlie and Dearbhaill are keeping them alive, contemporizing them.This is no theme park. There is nothing tacky or commercial here. It is a place of living culture, oozing with pride and determination to protect and share some of the joys of its heritage”.
