Other magical places to enjoy the night sky
Where: Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis), County Donegal
To see the natural phenomenon of the Northern Lights, you need a combination of the right solar conditions, clear skies to the north and no light pollution. Notoriously hard to predict an appearance, when they do appear, it’s nothing short of spectacular as the skies light up with rolling waves of neon pink, vibrant green and piercing blue. Join stargazers, light chasers and astrophotographers on the quiet beaches of Inishowen and enjoy the magic of the Aurora Borealis.
