Gastronomy & Astronomy

This brand new tour is an ideal winter wonderland evening for your group 

The evening starts with a hearty supper in Newport's Grainnuaile Gastro-pub featuring some of the Gourmet Greenway food producers.  After dinner, we will whisk you and your friends away on board our Starlight Express and into Mayo's  Gold Tier International Dark Sky Park for a dark sky safari tour. 


 Weather permitting, we will include a laser pointer night sky tour of the darkest celestial skies - on cloudy nights we provide an on screen introduction to the night sky, together with take away seasonal sky maps for all attendees.  

This is an ideal excursion for a group booking to blow the cobwebs away!
