Mahon Falls - any good? was created by Bart
Hi all
Just wondered if anyone uses the car park at the Mahon Falls in Waterford as a dark site, or does it be full of drinkers or "lurvers"

Thanks
Barry

Hi Barry, I have been wondering about this myself as I have been there during the day quite a few times, at night though I don't know what it is like. Sorry I don't have the answer, maybe some could let us know?

I would be interested in trying it some night. Only thing to remember is that it gets quite cold up there. As you say it's amazing where you can find them Luvers.

Can be very windy up there as we did an observing night there many moons ago but twas nice & dark. The 'quiet' end of Clonea Beach can be a good spot too BUT the hotel lights (even though they're at the far end of the beach) can be very intrusive.

First rule of scouting 'new' observing sites: Google [site name] + dogging.

If you get any hits look elsewhere. :bigshock:

If you want a flavor of the place there is a YouTube video of the Sean Kelly 2011 Mahon Falls currently doing the rounds for the big event there next Sunday. Although its a cycling video, you get a lot of views as they go up and down. (PS For the cyclist out there its a tough climb after already doing 120 KM) Sorry I have not figured out how to post link to the YouTube videos
