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.

Grew up as a young kid playing Gaelic Football but had not been to a competitive All Ireland Championship for some time as I live in Australia. Went to a semi final between Donegal & Dublin in a crowd of 84,000 people and what a wonderful atmosphere and high drama & plenty of exciting football. I went with 2 friends... More

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

It was really nice and funny, even for me that had never even watched a hurling game. You learn the rules and how to play, and in the end there's a match where you can show your (lack of) skills. Haha Totally recommended!

We had such a craic trying all the different sports that we totally forgot our lack of sleep & excessives of the previous night. A lovely friendly informative team who made it so much fun whilst also giving... More

While staying in Dublin I stumbled across Experience Gaelic Games on the internet. My first inclination was to forget about learning how to play Gaelic football and hurling. I wasn't with a group and I was sure I'd make a fool of myself. I couldn't have been more wrong. The staff was so friendly and welcoming and, of course, the... More

We first were informed of the culture and history behind the games, which was so interesting! We played Handball, Gaelic football, and Hurdling (Lacrosse), first being given training by Bryan, who was really helpful. Although we were the only girls there, we soon got stuck in and became part of the team. It was a great way to meet new... More
