The Mayo Dark Sky Park

A reserve of breathtaking starry skies

Just imagine the picture: the Irish wilderness, not a sound, not a sound, and you, plunged into this idyllic setting, your head in the air, with thousands of stars above you. No city lights: just you, your friends or family, together sharing this special moment!

This is what the Mayo Dark Sky Park offers you. On a clear night in Mayo, you can dream of more than 4,500 twinkling stars, as well as other planets in our solar system, the Milky Way and even meteors, all in front of the naked eye.
