Our students and parents really enjoyed the Skydome and hopefully we will be in a position to book it again next year.

The content was presented in a very visual manner. The information was concise and simple, the children were not given words they did not understand. The question and answer sessions facilitated further learning for all the children. A very enjoyable and educational experience.
Ms O'Connor, St Brendan’s NS, Fenit Click for more customer comments
Very interesting demonstration, the SkyDome was very effective in teaching the children all about earth in space. Many thanks.

The children adored the experience and the transitions from day to night. They returned to their classroom talking and chatting about what they had seen with great enthusiasm. Ollie had great patience and rapport with the young children, maintaining their attention and answered all their questions.

Múinteoir Rang a 5, Gaelscoil An Mhuilinn, Mullingar Click for more customer comments
The children thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Oliver included Irish terminology in the session which is always a bonus for Gaelscoileanna. The experience made the planets, stars etc. more interesting to the children than any classroom lesson could.
Múinteoir Uí Mhuirí, Gaelscoil An Mhuilinn, Mullingar Click for more customer comments
Very knowledgeable coordinator. A little advanced for the infants but still extremely enjoyable. Dome effect very good. Feedback from children was they loved the experience.
Múinteoir Naíonáin Bheaga, Gaelscoil An Mhuilinn, Mullingar Click for more customer comments
Rang 3 showed great interest in the SkyDome. They would have loved more time to ask questions and study the sky more.

Ms Ryan, St Brigid's NS, Singland, Limerick Click for more customer comments
Great to see theory put into as practical terms as possible within the confines of the school. Info pitched at right level. Really enjoyed experience. Class all agree it was excellent. Just enough info without overloading!
Ms Synnott, St Brigid's NS, Singland, Limerick Click for more customer comments
Ideal in that no transport costs were involved and pupils could be much more effectively organised on school premises. Great variety in the presentation, kept the children involved at all times, a great way of illustrating some complex concepts.
Ms McElhinney, St Brigid's NS, Singland, Limerick Click for more customer comments
Very worthwhile, the pupils would have learned a great deal as it consolidates what had been done earlier in the year.
Ms Clune, St Brigid's NS, Singland, Limerick Click for more customer comments
Because we had it in situ, it was more affordable for the children, it fitted perfectly with our primary science, award activities and captivated both adults and children.
Ms Ganey, St Brigid's NS, Singland, Limerick Click for more customer comments
It was thoroughly enjoyable and fascinating experience. The visual element was fantastic and made everything easier to understand and follow for the children.
Ms Scannell, Duagh NS, Kerry Click for more customer comments
The staff and children thoroughly enjoyed the experience of the SkyDome Academy. Everybody enjoyed the colourful visuals and it was a wonderful educational experience, well done.
Mr Fitzgerard, Duagh NS, Kerry Click for more customer comments
Excellent, brings the universe to life, adapted to younger age group, children's interest was held, they sat and listened.
Ms Nolan, Duagh NS, Kerry Click for more customer comments
We all thought the planetarium was great. It really ticked the boxes for all classes for the Planet Earth in Space strand of the Geography curriculum - an area that teachers find difficult enough. The children loved the projections and gained a good understanding of the movement of the earth, day and night and the seasons as well as the solar system and constellations generally. I particularly liked how you wove the ancient astrological / astronomical beliefs into the presentation.
Ms Sheridan, Bray School Project Click for more customer comments
The presentation was excellent. The children greatly enjoyed the experience and in discussion later in the classroom it was evident that they learned a lot during the session. I will use this as a starting part for projects on the solar system and the galaxy.
Mr Sheridan, Bray School Project Click for more customer comments
This was an excellent experience for all the children. They did find it difficult to sit and listen for the full period of time. Otherwise it was outstanding! First Class Level!
Ms Finnerty, Bray School Project Click for more customer comments
It was better than other trips in the sense that it came to the school. Really well presented and pitched- thank you!
Ms Regan, Bray School Project Click for more customer comments
Although the group were quite talkative it was because they wanted to share their knowledge and many have never experienced such an event. I am a special needs assistant and sat with two boys who thoroughly enjoyed themselves and learnt a lot. I would certainly recommend SkyDome.
Ms Keating, Bray School Project Click for more customer comments
It is difficult to compare the Sky Dome with other school trips. It is different and my class absolutely enjoyed the whole experience.

Ms Delaney, St. Colman's NS, Mucklagh Click for more customer comments
Brilliantly delivered pitched just right, maintained children's interest the whole way through a must for all 5th and 6th primary classes
Ms O'Gorman, St. Colman's NS, Mucklagh Click for more customer comments
I found your SkyDome presentation to be very informative, educational, innovative and most importantly entertaining for all of our students. In these days of rapid technological and scientific change the SkyDome certainly grabs the attention of 'the xbox generation'. All students enjoyed the experience and I'm sure this has led to many of them opening their minds to scientific ideas and perhaps careers ...well done.
Mr Marron, St. Paul's Secondary School, Monasterevin Click for more customer comments
I think that the children would have enjoyed about another fifteen minutes or so, as they had loads of questions and were really enjoying it.
Mr Lawless, St. Andrew's College, Booterstown Click for more customer comments

Ms Ní Bheaglaoich, Notre Dame Secondary School, Churchtown Click for more customer comments
Super. Very informative. Excellent feedback already from students. They enjoyed it and certainly picked up a few things that they didn't previously understand. After talking to my classes, it really went down well. They loved it, I'll be recommending it around.
