Prepping for lightscape
This year we are welcoming some of the biggest and best known Celtic myths and legends to Loughcrew. Come and witness as we travel through the four ages of Ireland’s mythological past and see how these favourite tales are unwoven through an interpretation of light, sound and installation.
This year’s show looks to shine a light on some of the best known heroes and villains, while illuminating our current values in the reflection of Ireland’s oral history. Our installations look at educating new audiences while providing a playground that will dazzle the imagination of young minds, while also providing the backdrop to make older bodies feel like children again as they navigate this lightscape through myth, legend and mystery.
Our vision is to allow you to build memories with those nearest and dearest and to bring out your inner child and dazzle you with lights, projections, soundscapes and scenery.
Loughcrew Lights 2021
Alice in Wonderland
Lewis Carroll created Alice in Wonderland in 1865 and is one of the most visual, iconic and imaginative dream narrative celebrated across generations. It has been interpreted through film, theatre, dance, comics and many other media and has already been established in Loughcrew Gardens through a range of different sculptures and hidden features.
With its connection to the gardens, it is the perfect theme for this years Lightscape as it offers incredible visual avenues to cater for the imagination of everyone in the family. We will update thoughout the year as we continue to develop towards the illuminated dreamscape that will be Lightscape 2021.

Loughcrew Lightscape 2020 was our first exploration into illuminating the night. The theme for 2020 was a mixture of The Nutcracker and a magical Winter Wonderland.
Due to the Coronavirus we were unable to acheive all of our ambitions but we were very happy with having been able to create some fantastical results.
