We realise that every organisation is different in terms of type of business, products, size, resources and also how advanced they are in the field of sustainable tourism. So we have two levels of membership available:

Intermediate Membership – Entry Level membership achievable to all companies with a little work and effort.

Certified Membership – Independently audited certification to a global standard, this is the blue riband level that we encourage all members to aspire to.

Our membership is designed to be accessible, relevant and useful to all Irish tourism businesses, from small nature-based operators to large, urban attractions and hotels.

As a member of Sustainable Travel Ireland, you will have the opportunity to access a fully comprehensive program of online training.

Once you have signed up as a member and actively participating in training you can work towards becoming certified.
