From Science to Scenery

Visit Birr Castle Demesne  and keep all of the family happy.  For the curious in your group, visit Ireland’s Historic Science Centre and the great telescope—known as the Leviathan—of the 1840s.

Slow down and watch the world float by

Escape to the water and enjoy one of the many chances to sail, kayak or simply sit by the river and soak up the sights and sounds of nature.  Be amazed by the colourful sunsets or for the early risers, why not take your breakfast on a walk and enjoy a beautiful sunrise before you start your day of exploring.
