Not being a science enthusiast, I wasn't expecting to be impressed. Turns out I was very wrong. I had a fantastic experience. I think the interactiveness makes the experience much more interesting and fun. Took home some great knowledge I'd never have sought out. Tour lady was enthusiastic, passionate and humorous - a winning combo. Well done guys! I look... 更多
Took a bus & short walk to reach the castle. It actully looks amazing from outside but there is nothing much inside. As its a small castle so obviously it will end up as a short tour. The guide was really informative about the place & history. For viewing program you will be taken into an inflatable blow up tent... 更多
The observatory is a cool place to spend a couple of hours. There are nice walks in the area alongside the river lee and the castle cafe offers a tasty brunch, lunch and dinner menu. The castle itself houses a science exhibit as well as a view from the roof and a visit to the "dungeon" where the castle armoury... 更多
Feel like a Queen or king for the day and take this historic trip to a fabulous work of Art Castle. Take those pictures to hold the memory.
We visited this Observatory on our way home from a short holiday. The staff were very friendly and helpful (even looking up directions for us on their computer!). There is an interactive science exhibit, and a tour that brings you up and down the tower. Tickets are less than ten euro, and the tour takes about twenty minutes. It was... 更多
This is a great tour not only for people interested in their history, but also people who love space science! The location is off the beating track and may be hard to find but once there it is well worth it. There is a restaurant there which is always packed, as the food is just wonderful! The staff in both... 更多
Thanks so much, DeegoLAD! We're chuffed :) 更多
Visited the castle while here on business. Theyhave guided tours for 6.50 Euro that last about 30 mins. They take you up the spiral staircase to the observation deck overlooking the river Lee. There is also a gunnery area where old canons protected the harbor. There is a restaurant on the castle grounds.
Hi Kim, Thanks very much for your feedback. We hope you also enjoyed the Planetarium Show and Cosmos at the... 更多
Blackrock Castle was once a fort to protect the Cork harbor, but is now an interactive science exhibit for families and kids. You can take a short tour to the top and bottom of the castle, up a winding staircase. The views from the top are nice, and the info you hear is interesting. Our tour guide, Keevan, (I think... 更多
This is not what you would expect. The tour of the castle is essentially a short introduction to the history of Cork, it's traders and why it became known as the rebel county. The tour guide was excellent. You could tell he knew his stuff and had a genuine love for his work. The castle itself is tiny compared to... 更多
