Midterm at the Castle

Programme of Events at the Castle this Midterm!


Planetarium shows will run from February 17 – 23 at 12:00, 13:00, 14:00, 15:00 and 16:00.

These shows will give you and your family the chance to discover the wonders of the night sky in our inflatable dome.

Find out just what the school children of Cork (and Dublin, Tralee, Waterford, Enniscorthy, Limerick….) have been marvelling at for the last five years!

Admission is included in your ticket for Cosmos at the Castle

Unfortunately the Dome will not be wheel chair accessible and has a limited capacity of 18 people per session. Tickets will be allocated for the shows on a first come, first served basis.

Take a Tour of the Dungeon and Lower Turret…

During Midterm from February 17-23, we will run guided tours to the dungeon and lower turret each day. Join our Explainers as they bring you on a trip back through the colourful history of Blackrock, Cork or into the future of blazars, quasars and the BCO Planet Search Programme.

Tours will take place at 13:30 and 15:30 and are included in your ticket to Cosmos at the Castle. Please note that our tours do have a limited capacity due to safety reasons.


Engineering: Past and Future Workshops will be held on Feb 18, 20 and 22 at 14:00-15:30. Book your space now!
