What are Ireland’s ‘Top 10’ science places?

You can now find Ireland’s ‘top 10’ science places, thanks to our new interactive Atlas of ingenious places. We’ve selected the best Irish locations, in six geeky-science themes, stretching all the way from the Giant’s Causeway to Mizen Head.

To view each of the ‘top 10’ lists on the Atlas, just toggle the other categories off.   Then, you can see at a glance what are Ireland’s top 10 astronomy sites, for example.

There are so many great places we could have included, that it was a tough job but, after lots of discussion, we’ve chosen our six ‘top 10’ lists.

Off you go now, take a virtual tour of great Irish science places. And then tell us what locations you think should be added to the Atlas in the next phase.  You can drop by our Facebook page, follow us on Twitter, or pop a suggestion in the comment box below.

We hope you enjoy exploring Ireland’s great science places with the new atlas.  The Atlas is a project for Dublin City of Science 2012.  It was developed for us by Cookie Web.

    Many of the balloons, especially those towards the north, are only partially visible.

      Hi, you can navigate the map using the controls on the right hand side (move around the compass, and zoom in and out). Alternatively, left-click on the map, hold the button, and you can drag the map around to travel where you want. That will bring other parts of the map into better view.

    A motivating discussion is definitely worth comment.

    There’s no doubt that that you need to publish more on this subject matter, it might not be a taboo subject but usually people do not talk about such issues. To the next! Cheers!!
