Dark Sky Reserve

On clear nights, the skies of the Iveragh Peninsula, in the South West of Ireland, are simply stunning, brimming with astronomical sights visible to the naked eye – the Milky Way, the Andromeda Galaxy, star clusters and nebulas. It is little wonder then, that this area has been designated an International Dark Sky Reserve, by the International Dark-Sky Association. It is one of only 3 Gold Tier Reserves on the planet, and the only Gold Tier Reserve in the Northern Hemisphere.
