Learn more about astronomy on a private guided tour of our Observatory building and Astropark. Highlights include a behind the scenes access to the historic Armagh telescopes, including the 1795 Troughton and 1885 Grubb equatorial telescopes, as well as learning about the current science conducted at the Observatory.

Or have a private night time viewing through the Grubb 10-inch equatorial telescope, used to compile in 1888 the New General Catalogue of Nebulae and Clusters of Stars by the 4th Director of the Observatory, JLE Dreyer, still one of the most important catalogues used by professional astronomers today.
