Skelligs, Kerry Dark Sky Reserve

Stargazing to the sound of the ocean in pristine dark skies is as good as it gets and because of the lack of light pollution In the Kerry International Gold Tier Dark Sky Reserve, you can see the star constellations and planets as they were seen by your ancestors.


We have been working behind the scenes to figure out a way to help hosts & visitors to the Kerry International Dark Sky Reserve this season. As it is not possible for us to offer stargazing events just yet (it's impossible to socially distance in darkness), we thought we would provide guidance each month for the next five months to enable hosts and visitors to become their own star gazing guide. Many thanks to John Flannery of the Irish Astronomical Society and Llŷn Iveragh Ecomuseums, Kerry County Council for their help.

The guidance will be via a Zoom meeting and the link is set up for 5 recurring meetings so you only have to sign up once!
