  • It is a penalty tremendous this beauty's Castle not to visit as such. Inside it is an astrological Center for children and the truth is that children can enjoy much but I think that something so could build it somewhere else and let this beauty to visit such as Castle. I as a lover of the castles I went with really bad taste in your mouth and do not recommend it for anything.

  • 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. 
  • 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.
  • Great spot and makes fine use of the Castle. The exhibition is well worth a look and is a great resource for local schools. Staff are friendly and helpful. Nice restaurant on site as well.
  • 365 days the same spot, never the same view.. Lovly place to escape the City..
  • Cafe and restaurant are great value for money. Great place to warm up after a walk along the Lee.
  • Nice place for a pleasant meal or just a pint and coffee
