Journeys of Exploration

This exhibition is housed in the iconic Cork landmark, Blackrock Castle Observatory. It is an interactive experience taking the visitor through the heart of the castle along a route that tells the story of Cork’s defended landscape, its merchant trade and the smugglers and pirates that navigated one of the world’s deepest natural harbours. Design elements include exterior signage, harbour intrepretation via a map table, river panoramic and an interactive touch table.
