Cormack travelled from Sydney to Galway to instruct and teach us how to play and inform us of the significance GAA has on the national Identity. This experienced helped me to appreciate just how much skill is involved and how enjoyable both the hurling and football are. I had done the Croke Park tour in Dublin so this complimented that...

This is a must do Irish activity! We had so much fun learning how to play both Gaelic football and hurling. Our instructors where amazing and very helpful especially when we couldn't get it. They also had a good laugh with us which made it all that bit more fun. Thanks again!

Did the Experience Gaelic Games as part of a Shamrocker tour. Was a great experience to learn the history and skills of Hurling and Gaelic Football. Had a great coach to run us through the drills and help us win the day. Thanks heaps.

We took a group of Scouts (aged 14-18) to experience Gaelic games. Of our week in Ireland this was by far our best activity. They could not have been more helpful or fun and all of our kids, regardless of ability were made welcome and encouraged to do their best. We were a little worried that it would be like... More

I'm not a girlie girl so the idea of understanding my Irish history roots and have a bit of physical activity was perfect for my hen do! All the girls had great fun and we're all become that bit more curious about Gaelic sports! Would recommend and would love to be back. Only comment I would make is to ensure... More

I refer to the review below. I very rarely use TripAdvisor, my previous two reviews having both being grossly unhelpful to anyone. However, I was on the same stag-do as Josh C and I can confirm that it is an excellent activity and the staff are terrific. The only criticism I would have would be reserved for the soft defending...

Immense fun. A group of 16 of us were in Ireland for a stag-do, from across the UK and Switzerland. The 4 hours flew by and the welcome we received from Georgina, Brian, Martin and Cormac was absolutely fantastic and we didn't stop laughing for the entire visit. They are highly knowledgeable and passionate about the Gaelic games and their... More

An excellent experience for anyone looking to have fun and learn about Gaelic sports. We went as part of my stag do and even though we turned up an hour late due to my best man loosing his passport, and then accidentally going to the South Korean embassy instead, the guys were really nice and friendly and still gave us...

This is a must do when you visit Dublin! I learned a lot of things I didn't know about the history of some of the sports. Our trainer Brian was amazing as a trainer and is also a sports buff. I thought it was totally cool that he knew the history of The Ohio State rivalry against those dreadful Michigan... More
