The 2018 Mayo Dark Sky Festival will take place from the 2nd to the 4th of November
The Mayo Dark Sky Festival is a three-day exploration of both the beautiful county of Mayo and the skies above it.

This is the fourth year of the festival which provides ample opportunities to learn about astronomy for people of all ages. The event is centred around Hotel Newport in Newport but is also in the nearby towns of Mulranny and Ballycroy.

During the day time there are plenty of events including talks and workshops on astronomy, environmental matters, astrophysics, astronomical heritage and art, science shows, photography, rocket workshops, planetarium shows and lots more.

Evening events will explore local heritage to complement the night-time theme, including stargazing walks and observations, storytelling, magic and music.
