We went with a group of 7 ladies. We had the best time learning about the roots and the culture behind it all. You get to take part in handball, gaelic football and hurling and it's all a lot of fun. 100% would recommend, even if you're not that sporty! Advice: we all wore jeans- leggings or something else would've... More

I went with about a dozen others as part of a stag do, and had a great time. Both the guys teaching us were really good fun, but were also really passionate about gaelic games. We did handball, hurling, then football and in all it lasts about 3 hours. You don't have to be any good at sport to do... More

As a tour guide for American school trips, I am always searching for unique and engaging activities for large groups of teenagers. At Experience Gaelic Games, we laughed, learned, and had SO much more fun than we were expecting! It was a cold week in Dublin and the students (and their parents) weren't exceptionally enthused about playing games outside. However,... More

We organised a trip here as part of a stag do. The staff were great and a load of fun. Plus, it was easy to catch the bus from Dublin centre. We were aching by the end but it set us up for a fantastic weekend. Highly recommended.

We were a group of 25 friends, guys and girls, and had the best time at the Gaelic Games Experience! This is by far the best experience I had in a foreign country: it allows you to really embrace the culture of a place while having tons of fun! Everybody enjoyed it: the sporty type and the non-sporty type as... More

We went as 2 adults and 2 teenagers and all had a fabulous time! The staff were so welcoming and accommodating and put us all at ease. The activities themselves are such good fun and it isn't often you find something that both adults and kids enjoy equally. Definitely a different outing than the usual sightseeing but cannot recommend it... More

This really is an experience not to be missed and which really caught the interest of our group. After the introduction to the Gaelic Games, putting on the helmets and holding a hurley broke the ice, as we went out to the all weather field to try our skills. Afterwards we tried our hand in the handball court. The welcome... More

Myself and 4 others had a very good time at this experience. We got to try out handball, hurling and garlic football with breaks of tea/coffee/water and chocolate biscuits in between. What more could you ask for? They were very informative and open for all questions - they gave good clear instructions and allowed for laid back games at the... More
