There is nothing like a game of hurling. It's so fast and the skill of players is something else. You will be caught up in the atmosphere and the passion of the game. Definitely a must see if you are visiting

I came with other other classmates from UC Berkeley, and we all had a fantastic time at Experience Gaelic Games. My group's two coaches, Kean and John-O, taught us American college students with patience and a great sense of humor. Learning hurling, Irish football, and Irish handball was really fun, especially hurling, which is like Irish lacrosse. I definitely recommend... More

Cormack was an absolutely fantastic coach. Provided a highly stimulating and culturally enriching experience. Thoroughly enjoyed the entire thing. It is through activities like these and people like Cormack who will keep the spirit of Irish sports alive! Would recommend!

This is a great way to spend an afternoon. The staff are engaging in both organisation and running of the event. The activity itself is a fun balance between understanding a little more of Irish culture and having a mess around with sports few foreigners have tried before. Euro 30 for three hours is bordering on a little pricey, but... More

On a Stag Do with 16 of us on 30th May. Easy enough to get too, and had the best day ever. All the guys were very welcoming and made us feel at home straight away. Learned how to play handball, hurling, and GAA football. Each game started with the guys teaching us the basics, then finishing with a competitive... More

Great family day out. Few beers in the local pubs before the game where fans mix and never ever trouble. Sing songs watch the match and back to the pub where winning and losing fans mix. No hint of trouble just fun and banter, Brilliant day out

I bring my university group here every year, and it's always a highlight of the trip. The students love it, the hosts do everything to tailor your experience to your needs;. I suggest combining this with a tour of Croke Park, but play the games first, so that the tour is more meaningful. An A+ experience!

Being over sixty, I wondered how I would go but it was no worries. I was welcomed and was lucky enough to be teamed up with a French group of guys after their bucks night...we had a great time. It was all hands on and really informative. Being a sports enthusiast, I now feel like that I have a much... More
