Star Wall Partners

The work we do at CIT Blackrock Castle Observatory is made possible by the continued support of Cork Institute of Technology and Cork City Council. Our science outreach efforts are funded and facilitated by partners such as Science Foundation Ireland, ESERO Ireland, and the generous support of Qualcomm Ireland and The Ireland Funds.

CIT Blackrock Castle Observatory are the national coordinator for all of European Southern Observatory’s outreach work in Ireland, and in 2019 we will be the National Outreach Coordinator for the celebration of the International Astronomical Union’s 100 year anniversary.

We are grateful for support offered by partners such as Bus Éireann, who offer to bring schools to The Castle at a special rate*, and Fáilte Ireland, whose support was instrumental in the creation of our Journeys of Exploration, Maritime Heritage exhibits. We are proud ambassadors of the Pure Cork brand.
