This hour long show was really interesting, even for a complete novice. Fionn, the curator, has created this very impressive show. He spoke really well, encouraging questions and throwing in some humour too! He has certainly inspired us to go outside with our new planisphere...More

Very good and informative presentation by young student. Planetarium itself is little dated and equipment has showing it but for money you pay it was great experience. I would strongly recommend to stop by if you are around with kids.

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

Maybe the 5 year old if he is an attentive 5 year old, but probably not the 3 year old. Our 7 Yr old loved it, but it's not really geared to preschool ages.
