The kids had a great time! But the "planetarium" is essentially a blow-up igloo in which you have to sit inside cross legged. The seniors in our group were clearly unamused. But the tour leader did a good job, given what he had to work with.
Last visit here was for my wedding 25+ years ago and the place has changed a little. We had the full tour this time and found the guide very knowledgeable, interesting and engaging. The walk up the spiral stairs to the roof was not for the feint hearted. The narrative throughout is excellent and we followed with lunch at the... 更多
A great restaurant to visit, morning or evening, with a high standard of service, interesting options on the menu with something for everyone (including us vegetarians!) and what a setting to dine in. Fully recommend it!
Took son here in October half term, very quiet and we had apparently just missed the start of one tour so we decided to look round by ourselves and come back for the next tour in a couple of hours- we had been round the castle and read everything way before the next tour so we left- disappointed but understanding... 更多

Blackrock Castle Observatory is located along very nice walk line by the harbour. You can stop inside the castle and have a coffee or tea, dinner or lunch. Kids and adults will like it. There is a car park nearby but more likely full.
Outside casual dining, cafe style dining and formal dining room all available. We gathered following our sons graduation from ucc. Despite being one hour late, we did ring, we were treated to beautiful food, great service, beautiful open fire, great ambience.
We visited Blackrock Observatory on a Culture night and our son loved it. There were talks given and the kids were shown about the planets and stars.
I have been looking to tour a castle but this one is a planetarium and observatory. The tour guide in the planetarium was extremely informative. We learned a lot from him. Our weather this day was terrible so no tour or the upper tower. The displays were interesting but the overall time here needed is very short.
I visited today at 15:00 for lunch. I got the pork sandwich which was served to me by a kind and knowledgeable waitress "black hair" she took the orders from my group with three others. The food was lovely just a bit on the small side as for €7.50 I expected a bit more in the sandwich. Outside of that... 更多
