About

Conrhenny Plantation offers unspoilt panoramic views over Douglas Bay, and is the perfect spot for budding stargazers, with uninterrupted horizon views from the North East to South to the West. With low light pollution present, Conrhenny Plantation is a fantastic spot to go stargazing.

Conrhenny car park is one of 26 registered Dark Sky Discovery Sites on the Isle of Man. With the help of Interpretation Boards on site, stargazers can fully enjoy the stunning views on offer in the Manx skies.

Advice and Safety:

The stargazing site is a large flat area surrounded by grass verges. Observers need to remain on tarmacked area as there are slopes beyond grass to south and west.
