Overview

This is the only planetarium in the republic of Ireland. The shows held here show star constellations and stargazing tips. The planetarium is a community run operation and is well worth a visit. The planetarium shows are given by young, fresh and enthusiastic students from the college making it very entertaining.

A planetarium consists of two essential parts: a projector drawing the night sky and a guide touring you around. At Schull planetarium both were excellent. A piece of handmade Zeiss optics in perfect shape would be an interesting exhibit in itself, but seeing it come...More

Fionn is an excellent speaker and his knowledge is fantastic. I would definitely recommend this outing. Very reasonably priced, the show takes about 40/45 mins I wouldn’t reconsider this for children under 6/7 as they would have to be interested and if they loose interest...More
