Inishowen Maritime Museum & Planetarium, Greencastle

The Inishowen Maritime Museum was opened in 1994; the initiative to produce a Maritime Museum provided a common grounding for the community of Inishowen to come together rather than individually housing the parts of the community’s historic maritime memorabilia. The establishment and continued growth and investment of our company over the last two decades have enabled us to conserve our strong maritime background, built through a common historical interest in our area.

The services and activities we provide are as diverse as our users, from a maritime museum, planetarium, nautical gift shop & cafe to hosting temporary exhibitions, concerts and fairs. The museum continues to grow and develop exhibitions/projects to promote our heritage through tourism, membership and social networks.

  • A little gem of discovery - the sea, the stars and exploration all under one roof in Greencastle. You should make this a stop on your crossing on the ferry route. Good coffee and scones and welcoming helpful staff. Lovely traditional music when we were there today.
