Welcome to Irelands Eden. EDEN is the acronym for European Destinations of Excellence, a project promoting sustainable tourism development models across the European Union.

Developed around an annual theme, national competitions take place every year and tourist destinations of excellence for each participating country are selected. The most recent winner in Ireland was Mulranny and the Great Western Greenway in Co Mayo. This fantastic destination joins a host of great other Irish holiday locations that have been singled out for acclaim. Here we take a look at them all.
