What do you hope to experience during your visit? Are you looking to catch an astronomical event or want to enjoy the night under the light of a full moon?
Planning Your Next Trip to the Dark Side
Plan the timing of your trip accordingly. To help plan your sky watching in advance, the Clear Sky Chart uses forecasts to show when the weather might be best for observing the night sky in your area. Photo: Bettymaya Foott. There are lots of resources available to learn about the sky above you. Local events may be scheduled around the new moon, when the stars are brightest, but looking up with the light of the full moon can be interesting too, especially if you want to observe the moon itself.
Parks often offer dark sky programming, so reach out directly to site managers for details. When visiting a dark place, remember that there are likely other astronomers and visitors around you who are eager to experience or photograph the beauty of the night sky, too. Be respectful of those nearby, preserving the view of the stars for yourself and others by using a red headlamp designed for preserving night vision. Minimize the light footprint of your vehicle by switching off headlights, and of your campsite by using dimmed lighting only when necessary.

Just obey the leave no trace policy even toilet paper. There is a a website called Safe Nights Ireland where you can park in peoples properties for a small fee if that feels better for you.
