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 three levels of membership available:

Introductory Membership –  This membership is entry level and open to all tourism businesses. You can sign up below.

Intermediate Membership – Find out what you need to achieve this here.

Certified Membership – Independently audited certification to a global standard, this is the blue ribbon level that we encourage all members to aspire to. Find out more about Certification here.

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 programme of online training. The first two courses are free. After this courses are priced at €35 + VAT.

Once you have signed up as an Introductory Member and are actively participating in training, you can work towards becoming an Intermediate Member or a Certified Member.
