If you are reaching us by air why not consider offsetting the carbon? It costs less than you might imagine. You can choose one of the very worthy causes on Carbon Footprint Ltd’s website. Alternatively at the end of each season we figure out our own carbon footprint and plant the corresponding number of native trees right here in Inishowen, and can add your own contribution to this. These trees provide a great habitat for the local wildlife and by getting local schools to help us plant and take care of them we can put across a really positive message to the kids.
