It was the fastest 4 hours we've ever spent. My 11-year old son and I wanted to experience some of the truly Irish (Gaelic) sports and we were not disappointed. It was so interesting and refreshing to learn about some new sports so different from the mundane North America sports of hockey, baseball, football and basketball. The staff at the... More

Our family, 2 adults and 2 kids, thoroughly enjoyed learning hurling, handball and Irish football from a friendly and engaged staff. It was very well organized and a bit of competitive fun without being too much so. We are not a super athletic family but all of us had a great time. Highly recommend as a family event, particularly for... More

Visiting Dublin with my boys 7 and 9 and looking for culturally interactive events so we tried Experience Gaelic Games (EGG) since we knew nothing about Gaelic football or Hurling. What a wonderful afternoon - Cormac was a terrific "coach" and his obvious joy in sharing Gaelic culture (and teaching us a few words) made the day even more special.... More

Cormac was an outstanding coach. My wife and I had a great time learning hurling and Gaelic football. We were able to pick it up quickly and we want to figure out how to continue playing when we get back to the states. So much fun!

If you are looking for something physically involved, to meet new people, to learn a thing or two about Gaelic Games, and to definitely have FUN, then you'll want to sign up for this event!!!!!! Ok...I must admit. Before I signed up to experience the Gaelic Games I thought it was going to be similar to Larping (for all my... More

Just had a great morning with the friendliest people experiencing Gaelic Football and Hurling. If you have sporty kids this is just great fun. Dara the instructor was brilliant with our kids and we all came away having learned something of Irish culture whilst having a lot of fun. A must do I'd say.

What a remarkable experience our students had! It was a highlight of their Study Abroad. Cormac and Georgina were wonderful hosts who made us feel more like old friends than customers. Education has never been so much fun! This is a "must do" if you really want to experience Ireland and it's culture.

If you will be spending more than a few days in Dublin, this is a fun afternoon for teens and older. You get to dress in the appropriate gear and learn the basics of Celtic games. The staff is amazing and can work with anyone, including people with disabilities...just give them a heads up call and they will be prepared... More

We had such a fun day learning how to play some traditional Irish games. The day consisted of learning and playing 3 different games. Handball, Football, and Hurling. The games are challenging and fun. I would definitely recommend doing this while in Dublin! It's such a cool way to submerse yourself in the Irish culture. Be sure to schedule this... More
