Largetst Telescope at Birr Castle, County Offaly, Ireland
In the early 1840's the Third Earl of Rosse built the world's largest telescope. It remained the world's largest for over 70 years. A reconstructed telescope is now in place and the still working ‘leviathan' draws astronomy buffs from around the globe.
