Armagh Observatory and Planetarium is Ireland’s leading centre for astronomical research and education, and one of the top attractions in the City of Armagh.

We are normally open every Tuesday-Sunday and on Bank Holiday Mondays 10am-5pm, when you can attend a show in our Planetarium dome and explore our exhibition area.

Our grounds, spanning around 20 acres of green space, are open 24/7 and provide many opportunities to get closer to both nature and space as well as some lovely views of Armagh.

The Observatory – featuring a number of historic telescopes – is both a beautiful Georgian building and an active research facility, so it can be admired from the outside, but it is only open to the public on scheduled tours.

Alternatively, a tailored group tour, Gold Tour, or Diamond Tour can be arranged for you; contact us for more details.
