Knockvologan Observatory is purpose-designed for at the most two people. The futon double matrass cannot be made in two single beds.

Our entire vicinity is very strictly no smoking and pets are not allowed in the Observatory nor in our garden or barn. We cherish our chickens, hedgehogs, frogs, toads and slow worms, and we have to anticipate future guests with possible allergies.

All of our bookings are taken directly with us, so the availability is always up to date. If you have any queries prior to booking, do not hesitate to contact us.
