Welcome to Sonairte

Sonairte is a visitor experience which promotes a love of the outdoors, organic produce, eco-awareness and sustainable living. We have been located at The Ninch, Laytown for 30 years and the centre is run almost entirely by dedicated volunteers. We are taking bookings for organised groups, school tours, various courses and our walled garden is producing tasty, organic produce. It is a place like no other and has something for all the family. Stroll the Walled Organic Garden, explore the Nature Trail,  have a picnic, visit our information center, follow our Heritage Trail or call into our Bee Museum.

For more information or to book tours please contact us on  or call 041 98 27572 (Weds-Fri) to speak to our team. 

We are currently selling raised beds for the avid or even novice gardener, for more information, please call or email the above.

Sonairte: The National Ecology Centre Ltd is a registered non-profit taking Company Limited by Guarantee.

Sonairte’s land and production methods are certified by The Organic Trust.
