Education in Ireland wish to thank Experience Gaelic Games for a fantastic fun-filled afternoon showcasing Irish culture to 45 international students from 10 different countries!. Georgina’s funny and informative introduction at the start was exactly what was needed to explain our sporting roots to so many different cultures. It created an amazing atmosphere of excitement and exhilaration among the students!... More

I have very little interest in Gaelic Games or the GAA as it is known, but I was taken to a Semi-Final Cup match in Croke Park by a friend and was, quite frankly, 'blown-away by the sceptical, colour and the sheer occasion of the thing. It was pure unadulterated tribal warfare and how two opposing camps could demonstrate such... More

These guys provide an inside track into what it means to be Irish, what really makes Irish peoples blood pump - Gaelic Games! Learn to play hurling or football and about the tradition behind them. This is the real deal and a unique fun experience that will give you memories for life!!! M

Never mind the weather - the whole team chipped in to provide a really stimulating, informative and super hands-on time for the family. They are flexible, helpful and have all the gear, skills and information to give you a completely unique experience. So much more than just a bit of a hit and giggle! Really highly recommended.

The owner explained the origins of the games and happily showed us how to play the games. Time well spent without a doubt. Just be prepared to run around and work up a sweat. Again well worth it. Only a 10 or 15 drive out of downtown Dublin.

The facilitators of Experience Gaelic Games were outstanding. Our group had a blast but more than that you begin to feel the national pride and history of these games and why it is such a part of their fiber. Loved this!!! My husband and I did this activity with a group of 10 friends and colleagues October 4, 2014.

The Gaelic Games is a MUST if you are visiting Dublin...you learn how to play Gaelic Football (which was most definitely created by a bunch of a drunk guys at a pub), Hurling (get ready to bash some head), and handball. The 'coaches' Brian and Darren were very friendly and patient--teaching a lot of new skills in a fun and... More
