Oxford Island National Nature Reserve

From Iain Todd of Sky at Night Magazine;

Astronomy enthusiasts in Armagh may already have the Armagh Observatory and Planetarium right on their doorstep, but the county also boasts Oxford Island Nature Reserve on the shores of Lough Neagh.

Oxford Island has played host to BBC Stargazing Live events in the past and is one of the only two Dark Sky Discovery sites currently in Northern Ireland (the other being Carrick-a-Rede on the Antrim coast).
