You can now access the full program of Events for the Mayo Dark Sky Festival running from October 28th to 30th from HERE

Many events are booking out fast at the Mayo Dark Sky Festival – so get yourself pre-registered soon from HERE

People have have been asking about pre-booking the observing sessions at Letterkeen, this can only be done at the event and not in advance. Parking at this location is very limited so preference will be given to those with medium to large telescope only.

At our secondary dark sky site at Burishoole Abbey just outside Newport (see above) we will be doing laser guided tours of the Autumn Constellations and some of their fascinating Stars and Deep Sky Objects. There will also be tutorials on Astrophotography ,  light-painting  and ideas for using pixel sticks at night. We will also have several Telescopes set up to view these Celestial gems.
