Social & Environmental Responsibility

Shandon Travel is committed to equality around the world


As frequent travellers who love to explore our world, we all know it's the people that that make it. We've shared meals, sunrises, stories and much more with fellow travellers and locals right across the globe... and made life-long friends in the process. 

To help ensure the world continues to move towards equality, peace and opportunity for all, Shandon Travel makes donations to organisations like the Irish Red Cross, to help fight poverty, war and the effect of natural disasters. If you're in a position to be able to help, we urge you to do the same. 

Shandon Travel is committed to sustainable tourism


As one of the world's largest global industries, tourism has an undeniable effect on the environment and on socio-economic development worldwide. At Shandon Travel we want to try to protect and preserve our planet's most beautiful landscapes, diverse ecology, and cultures.

There's so much to see and do, and we want to be sure the next generations can enjoy seeing the world as much as we do! We believe in the preservation and enhancement of cultural and natural heritages worldwide.
