A very informative show given by a student. We have walked by the planetarium numerous times and never gone in, glad we finally had the opportunity. I found myself in my backyard the other night with a clear sky and enjoyed picking out the constellations that we learned about.

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!

My father-in-law, my stepson and I, visited this local planetarium on a recent family holiday to Schull. Apparently it is the only planetarium in Ireland (which I find very hard to believe!) The 45 minute show started off with a video about the Hubbel Space Telescope (the video was about five years out of date), followed by a tour of... More

We enjoyed the Monday night star show at Schull Planetarium. After a short video about the Hubble Telescope the sky as it would appear on a clear night was projected on the domed ceiling. Adam the narrator went on to show us some of the most popular and interesting constellations, to tell us some Greek myths around these and most... More

We were looking forward to this for many months as I do amateur astronomy in my spare time but I was very disappointed with this star show. Iv been to one before in Spain. The young man who did the star show was very knowledgable and enthusiastic but unfortunately the equipment was in urgent need of repair or replacing. He... More

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.

A real need to be clear as to their opening hours and what is on when and where. Twice we visited to be told no show on a Tuesday or a Wednesday etc. etc. blah, blah. There is conflciting information on their website and locally as to when they have shows - even one guidebook talks about their "mysterious opening... More
