Night voyages
This is one of the best places on the Planet to view starry skies at night.
The Kerry International Dark Sky Reserve is the first area in the northern hemisphere to receive a gold tier award for the quality of its night-time skies.
Given the lack of light pollution, on a clear, moonless night you can see over 4000 stars with the naked eye.
Tips for star gazers
The seven bright stars of the Plough form the tail of Ursa Major. They act as a guide towards Polaris, fixed above the north point of the horizon. The light from Polaris, which has guided seafarers for centuries, has taken 434 light-years to reach you.
Scariff Island, is where Fr Francis O'Sullivan, a scholar, rebel, priest and wanted man, was caught and beheaded by British troops in 1653.
