Dark Sky Safari

Dark Sky Safari

Wonder at the dazzling beauty of a natural night sky on our stargazing safari.  Mayo International Dark Sky Park has been certified at Gold Tier dark sky park for its night sky quality.   


This guided tour combines an introduction to the local nocturnal wildlife in the Mayo International Dark Sky park and a laser pointer tour of the starry skies and constellations.  Our guides will explain legends attributed to celestial objects by different cultures around the world.


We conclude the evening with a visit to a traditional Seanchaí (storyteller) for local tales and stories together with close up magic and a drop of hot chocolate to set the scene under the night sky.


  • We will collect outside Newport's Grainne Uaile Pub.  Check by email for timings (due to seasonal variations).  This tour is ideally suited for Winter/Spring evenings.

    Typical tour 2-3 hours.  

    Minimum numbers required for ad-hoc bookings.  

  • Please ensure you bring warm clothing and plenty of layers.  Scarves, hat and gloves, together with good footwear also recommended.
