Walk Details

We’ll follow a looped trail into the countryside near the village of Sneem to experience the thrill of walking at night. You’ll be amazed how different everything appears at night.

Of course the bonus of doing a night-time walk in the Sneem area is its dark skies. On a clear night you can see more stars than you might have ever thought possible. With this area’s minimal light pollution you can see a vast amount of stars; planets, satellites, the space station and perhaps the Milky Way. You may even get to wish upon a shooting star.
