  4. GIANT EXPERIENCES
    Stars and Stones
    Combine astronomy and archaeology on our landscape experiences. People settled in Davagh Forest around 10,000BC and left lots of evidence behind, including the impressive Beaghmore Stone Circles, which some archaeologists believe are linked to astronomy. Then visit the modern day observatory to gaze at the same sky that fascinated your ancestors.
