With over 50 houses under construction the ecovillage is already one of Ireland’s largest residential construction sites. The second phase of construction focuses on green business development, including a 520 sqm Eco-Enterprise Centre, a 32-bed Eco-hostel & Learning Centre, a wood-fired bakery and other new businesses.
The Launch will also mark the switching on of a 500 sqm Solar Park -the largest solar thermal array in Ireland- and the launch of the community woodlands where17,000 mixed native trees have been planted.
The second phase also sees the reduction in a range of site prices and offers new housing options. A number of sites are reduced in price by up to 40% to offer a wide range of people – from green business start-up to cost conscious self-builders – a more affordable way to launch their business or build a home.
