Venue

The summer school will be held at the I-LOFAR Education Centre on the grounds of Birr Castle, in Birr, Co. Offaly in the centre of Ireland.

This historic astronomy site is beside the Irish node of the LOFAR radio telescope and the Leviathan of Parsonstown (pictured below), the largest telescope in the world for much of the 19th Century. Participants are encouraged to attend the symposium the following week after exploring Ireland for the weekend.

Travel and accommodation options will be announced soon.
