This was so much fun seeing the history of the Gaelic games and then also getting instruction on how to play them. While it was a bit difficult to locate, the instructors were great, safety of the games were kept in mind and it was a great opportunity to interact with our group in a sporty but fun way. I...

The team explained and also made us play 3 different games that I never played before. Fun, sure. But it is about more then that. They also explained about the role of the games and sports in the Irish culture, really taking the time to make sure that this is a truly great experience for all that want to understand... More

We had a booking for 11am on Jan 2,2016. We arrived at the address and there was no one there. After a phone call to the office, we had a call back from Colum. There was no record of the booking( they had changed their system). However he said he could be there within the hour and would call another... More

We visited Experience Gaelic Games with a group of 30-40 (my colleagues) as team building event and we had a fantastic time. The guys at the club are very friendly, enthusiastic and full of energy. They explained the history behind the various Gaelic Games. We were introduced to Gaelic football, hurling, handball and were shown some basic skills as well... More

We spent the day trying Gaelic games with the Na Fienne club. They gave us an intro into hurling, Gaelic football and handball. We first learnt some of the skills, then went and put them into practice. It was great fun for a group of lads, we were well looked after, if a little sore at the end!!

We had Brian and Cormac take our sessions and they ensured everything was safe and informative but... More

Had an absolutely great time here. Out on a 3 day stag do, we needed something to keep the gents out of the pub during the day on the Friday, so 12-3 Gaelic Games sounded perfect. We arrived and were well looked after with tea and biscuits to nurse existing hangovers. We then spent a bit of time hearing about... More

Really well run, good instruction and teaching, very safety conscious and really enjoyable half day activity which included handball, hurling and gaelic football. Great for all ages (maybe 16+) even for someone who is nearly 60!

I knew next to nothing about the Gaelic games when I first came to Ireland. After living here for two years, I feel like I have a good understanding about just how important these sports are to the Irish people. This experience, run by lifelong Gaelic game enthusiasts and a team of talented coaches, is the best way to learn... More

Cory Thanks so much for your review and your own blog on the Experience - it is just great - we'd advise readers to check out fivesuitcases.com - it's a great review site. Cory explains us and what we do even better than we explain ourselves! :-) Thanks Cory! Cormac & Georgina More
