We wanted to let you know that there has been a change to the published programme for the festival. Due to a family illness, Eanna ni Lamhna is unable to travel and has had to cancel her appearance on Saturday afternoon in Mulranny. We wish Eanna and her family well, and look forward to welcoming her back to Mayo at a future date. In Eanna's place, we are pleased to announce a talk entitled 'Nocturnal biodiversity: an exploration of species of the Night' by Marina Mulligan
With 3 locations. 15 talks, 12 workshops, as well as walks, stargazing, opening night concert, gala dinner, telescope trade stands and exhibitions, we realise it can be challenging to decide just which events to enjoy at the Mayo Dark Sky Festival! To make life just a LITTLE bit simpler, we have teamed up with LINEUPR to bring you a smartphone app that puts all the relevant festival information (ie WHAT'S ON, WHERE and WHEN) at your fingertips (ie on your smartphone). You wi
The newly formed vocal ensemble Systir (made up of the female members of Anuna) create a magical sound indeed - and we are thrilled that they will perform on the opening night of the MAYO DARK SKY FESTIVAL!
As in previous years, National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) have generously funded a free shuttle bus to take festival goers from venue to venue. The timetable is designed to get people to most of the major events in each location (Newport, Mulranny and Ballycroy) Check out the timetable and start planning your hassle-free eco-friendly festival !
