Played Handball, Gaelic Football and Hurling for the first time. Nice run through of the history of the sports too. The Bainisteoir said I might be good enough to play for the club someday too :P

Such a great experience. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. The facility is well maintained. The instructors organize handball, gaelic football, and hurling. You learn the rules and moves, practice, and play against other people. Any number of people and skill level is welcomed. It's about a 10 minute bus ride from Dublin City Centre, I would recommend trying to catch a... More

Trainers Ryan and Fergie were patient and attentive teachers making sure that everyone felt involved and engaged. Having had this experience enabled us to make a visit... More

The whole family had a great time learning about and playing handball, Gaelic football, and hurling. It gave us insight into both Irish history and culture and the games. It definitely enhanced our enjoyment of the semifinal hurling match we watched in Croke Park.

We were grouped with other families and groups of people of all athletic abilities. No matter what everyone's abilities were (athletic or not, competitive or not, etc), everyone had a blast. We loved learning about the Irish... More

This was so fun! We loved learning the games and then competing. It was well organized and good for the athletic boys and dad and the not so athletic mom (but eager to try!). Really memorable part of the vacation. The instructors were terrific and the drills and games were excellent. Loved it!!
