First time visiting, exceeded our expectations!
Many interesting exhibits, very informative.

A very special day.

Great place to bring the family for a day out
Aug 2019
Took the family over on the ferry. Didn't know there was a planetarium in Greencastle. We watched two shows. Informative and the kids liked it. Plus there are good local pubs with grub. We went to Rosato's in Moville. Excellent pizza with the kids.

Excellent Museum!
Jul 2019 • Friends
This is an excellent maritime museum! There is a wide range of exhibits and is great for all ages. I especially liked the upper floor with the Antarctic displays. Put it in your list when up in Greencastle!

Small but well thought out.

Very well thought out and created place. The planetarium has a number of different shows scheduled each day, so there's always something new to learn. The museum is full of interesting exhibits and info about the maritime heritage of the area.

They have a tea room for light lunches, snacks and drinks, and a gift shop with quirky things to buy.

Small but plenty to see.

We called in here on a whim yesterday-while the museum doesn't look especially large, it is jam packed with interesting exhibits-we especially liked the beautiful local fishing boats and the info that came with them! Easy to spend a couple of hours here if you are at all inter4ested in boats and the sea.

Boat haven

This nice museum offers a self guided tour of the artifacts in the museum-most of which highlights the fishing boat past and present of Greencastle, Ireland, The drive all the way from Donegal town took about two hours, which itself was a nice drive,

Researching family history
Mar 2019 • Couples
spent several hours at the museum researching family members lost at sea from the area they have a great memorial in front of the museum dedicated to those from the area lost at sea. I found my 3x great grandfathers name listed there. The staff were very friendly and helpful and connected us to Seamus who gave us even more information.
