My husband and I learned a lot thanks to the very informative young man who made the hour-long presentation. Much of it went over the head of my 9 year old son, who unfortunately fell asleep! We were amazed at the presenter's knowledge. It was also really interesting to see the specialised projector which was donated to the comprehensive school in Schull. It is in no doubt in good hands there.We were lucky that we were in Schull on a Wednesday evening and It was well worth the visit.

Great show, very knowledgeable presenter.
The only planetarium in Ireland, and it is in the grounds of a school - lucky kids!
So glad they open to the public

What a find. Never expected to learn about the galaxies and the universe on a visit to Schull.
Really informative and told by students. Brilliant!

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 which we were able to buy there.

He is a 6th year student at the school and I think they are lucky to have such a bright, enthusiastic and hugely talented teenager to run the planetarium (which is the only one in the Republic of Ireland).

A great experience, not to be missed. We will be back!

This planetarium visit was remarkable and surprising for our party of 10, with ages from 50-something down to 7 years old. Fionn Ferreira, the planetarium's curator, also happens to be a 17 year old leaving cert student and winner of several international science awards (including BT Young Scientist) for his invention which can eliminate microplastics from the ocean. Fionn meticulously, and with dry humour, took us through the Planetarium presentation - which is made possible by a truly impressive light machine that was donated to Schull by a mystery German scientist after World War 2. Ask Fionn, he will tell you all about it. After the presentation, Fionn takes questions - any questions about space - and just try and stump him - I bet you can't. Bring extra pocket money for the small but interesting gift shop because by the end of the show - you will want to support the Schull Planetarium all you can. Fionn is a strong supporter of youth in science and was extremely kind and generous with his time. Go for the planetarium, which is impressive in its own right - but just try and not be impressed by its young curator. I think you would fail.

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 to life and handled with the skill is what made this an experience.

Fionn Ferreira's presentation gives a solid introduction to our night sky, covering the various sights from an observational angle. A pedagogical point I would like to note is that after showing some of the most easily recognised landmarks and where to find other things from that, the entire sky is rotated from the current evening to the morning, and what-changes-and-why is explained together with finding the landmarks again before continuing. The entire presentation was sprinkled with mythological and scientific anecdotes.

The enthusiasm and energy shines.

If the countless audio-visual presentations available at any local "attractions" are starting to wear you out, this planetarium, located in Schull of all places, is a fresh breath worth a visit. We, a family group deciding on this as our endpoint before heading back east along the coast of West Cork certainly had a good time.
