Dark Sky Experience
Discover the magic of Kerry's night skies
Set on the border of the Kerry International Dark Sky Reserve – one of only four Gold Tier Dark Sky reserves in the world – Caragh Lake House is the perfect place from which to explore Kerry’s amazing night skies.
Whether you’re an amateur astronomer, young stargazer or you just want to be blown away by the wonders of the universe, our Dark Sky Special – including an 8 inch Dobsonian telescope, free introductory talk by a local astronomer and collection of stargazing books for kids and grown ups – will help make your stay at Caragh Lake House an even more memorable one.
Sitting outside on a clear night, wrapped in blankets, looking up at the sky, is for us one of life’s great luxuries.
We hope you’ll have the chance to enjoy it too.
