Half the Park is After Dark – Heritage Week event

Join our guides for a Bat & Nature Walk as dusk falls, followed by introduction to the Night Sky over Mayo Dark Sky Park. 

We can facilitate up to 15 people (maximum) per tour by prior booking only to ballycroyvisitorcentre@housing.gov.ie 

Weather permitting we will enjoy some stargazing and perhaps even a meteor or two for those staying up late!  

We advise warm clothing, sturdy shoes.  Bring a blanket and red torch light (not white) and ideally something to sit on if viewing conditions allow. 

Please note: Weather conditions will affect both bats and sky viewing but a stroll under naturally dark skies is an experience few people have these days.
