  • More a castle on a riverside landscape, which is always a good combination. The time we spent no longer gave to visit, but should be interesting, since it is an Observatory.

  • A great place to visit near cork. For 6.50eur you will be able to take a tour through the castle and learn about astronomy.
  • A really nice fort, for everyone to see. The landscape is beautiful. After visiting it we went to search a geocach and found another old castle.
  • Its not everyday you will stumble into a castle which happens to be a science center. Admit it more than 70% of the time they turn castles into a museum. If you are asian or at least someone who leaves south of the earth's equator, dont miss on this opportunity to learn more about what lies on the northern hemisphere in such an entertaining and educational experience. Make sure to also stop by at the gift shop and the cafe.
  • Little castle near cork city centre that also holds a observatorium. A nice walk from the city centre through streets covered by tree and along the river. Go on Sunday morning and grab a breakfast in a street food place near the cork boat club.
  • Nice little castle with an observatory. Very enthusiastic guide. Her enthusiasm about the cosmos was very infectious.
