Loughcrew Lightscape has now finished after heralding in the new year (2021). We hope that everyone who managed to visit had a fantastical adventure. This was our first lumination experiment and we were looking to shine a light in the midst of a dark winter surrounded by lockdowns and restrictions.

We are now looking to bring Lightscape back again next year with more light, movement and excitement. If you would like to know more about our future events then please get in touch with the Loughcrew team by emailing info@loughcrew.com.
