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

i was lucky to get a ticket for the final between kilkenny and tipperary. Hurling simply is THE best, fastest, most skilful, bravest, toughest sport and most exhilarating in the work!

Because of the pure passion and love of the game by the Irish one will fall in love with the game. One must appriciate the history and tribalism involved to appriciate more why there is so much interest in the game in Ireland. A visit to Croke park will completely convert you to follow the sport.

This was, without question, the most exciting activity on our itinerary! My family had the best time and truly enjoyed the introduction to Irish football, handball and hurling. We learned a lot about the history and the culture of hurling from Georgina, the owner of Experience Gaelic Games, who was on-site and involved in every aspect of our experience. She... More

This was a fantastic experience, and we enjoyed every minute of it. We were a small mixed group of children, adults and seniors. and we learned how to play Gaelic football, hurling, and wall ball. In addition to actually playing, we also watched films and listened to informative talks about the history of Gaelic Games, dance and language. All equipment... More

My husband and I recently took our son and daughter and their girlfriend/boyfriend to Ireland. As recent college graduates and division I athletes, we thought this would be appealing to them. We were introduced to Brian over coffee and videos...he was fun, knowledgeable and patient! First, we tried handball, followed by hurling and gaelic football. We watched videos, followed by... More

We had an absolutely fabulous time with the guys from Gaelic Games, they were knowledgable and patient and obviously had a real passion for their sport. This time I went with my twin 14 year old daughters and my husband but I fully intend to make sure I pay them a visit with my hockey team one day. Definitely one... More
