This is easily the best way to spend a Saturday morning in Dublin. Georgina and the instructors are incredibly welcoming and friendly. They accommodated me as an add-on to another group and were great about getting everyone involved. Not only were the games themselves fun, but the explanations by the staff were informative and easy to understand. It's great to get involved in an Irish cultural experience that isn't just another tour. I would highly recommend this to anyone visiting Dublin. If you're on the fence, give it a try. You won't regret it!

Had an absolutely awesome day. The staff are super friendly and they don't even get paid, they're just members of the club who play and love the sports. We paid 25 euro for 2 hours which was completely worth it. Great time, not just another church or castle but an even more cultural experience given that hurling is over 3000 years old, and really is a big part of the community. Would definitely recommend this to anyone, and have.

“Students from Denmark”
Reviewed March 18, 2014

We - a group of 22 music-students from Denmark - were having a wonderful time visiting Gaelic Games. It was so much fun - and also very informative and interesting. We learned more about Irish culture and the gaelic sports. Georgina and the two instructors were PERFECT at their jobs! We highly recommend this place to anyone!

“A great experience in Dublin”
Reviewed March 11, 2014 via mobile

I highly recommend the Gaelic Games experience. We had a group of 5 and we all agreed it was the highlight of our weekend in Dublin. The staff does a great job of teaching the skills and making it fun for everyone at all levels.

Everyone was very welcoming and nice. We learnt a lot about the gaelic games and the cultural aspect was the best part.We had a lot of fun training and trying to play the games. We went deep into the Irish way of life. It was fantastic! We were 8, 4girls and 4 boys and we joined a group of 5 American people.Everyone loved it. I definitely recommend it.
