Welcome to the Galway Astronomy Club

Whatever the level of your interest in Astronomy, welcome to Galway Astronomy Club, especially in what is a very exciting few months…..We are a very informal, friendly club and provide a service for the complete beginner as well as those with sophisticated home observatories. We hold regular meetings, star parties and other events for members and the public alike. We are also more than happy to present talks to clubs, schools and other organisations around the county.

Plato, Philosopher

“Equipped with his five senses, man explores the universe around him and calls the adventure Science.”

Edwin Hubble, Astronomer

“To confine our attention to terrestrial matters would be to limit the human spirit.”
