This is the only planetarium in the republic of Ireland. The shows held here show star constelations and stargazing tips. The planetarium is a community run operation and is well worth a visit.

A very informative evening. It was thought by a very informed student from the college. Started with a short intro video. Then we were planted into complete darkness and viewed the stars.

What a night. Three adults and 4 girls from 13-10. It was amazing. The guide Gabriel was so informed and so kind. He gave the girls posters with no extra charge. Great evening out. Highly recommended 👍

Best experience of my (rather rainy) recent trip to Schull. Entry fees were cheap and the star show came with engaging and informative commentary from a very charming and knowledgeable local student. Five stars!

While the information and the gentleman giving the talk were quite good, the equipment and the pre video is getting quite dated and so some edges weren't as clear as they could have been.

Perfect thing to do if you have small kids 7-13 when weather is sub optimal. It was interesting and easy.
