Slieve Aughty Centre is the life’s work of Esther Zyderlaan and her team to create a unique tourism and recreation centre in harmony with nature in the Slieve Aughty Mountains near Loughrea in county Galway.
With the organic garden central to the business, a horse riding facility began more than 20 years ago and has gradually expanded since. Since 2006, Slieve Aughty Centre added small conference facilities, workshops space, a pergola in the garden for outdoor ceremonies and, in 2012, opened the sustainably built 9 bedroom guest house and restaurant called The Three Towers Eco House & Organic Kitchen.
The Three Towers Eco House & Organic Kitchen more recently allowed the centre to open its doors to weddings, parties, workshops, organic dining and corporate events, providing a rural escape for friends, families, groups and couples of all ages.
Today Slieve Aughty Centre is an eco-friendly equestrian and activity leisure centre set on 17 acres of rugged Galway land. Guests have miles of trails for walking, cycling, horse riding and exploring nature as well as a stunning location for rejuvenation, relaxation and celebration!

We aim to create a place where you can connect with nature and the seasons. Take in the fragrance of the wood, listen to the sound of the animals and watch how they behave… Enjoy!
