We were a team from Norway visiting Dublin. Good friends for many years, and we are travelling together to have som fun together, away from work, family and wifes. This year Dublin and The Wall concert was the target. In addition we stumbled across the opportunity to do the Gaelic games experience. It was really Luck fpor us all!

It was just Great Fun: Our knowledgebase was Zero in the beginning, we got a good introduction, and then the games begun. After a few minutes all of us were hard-core enthusiasts of it all, and we can recommend it to all. Regardless of age, size, ...

We say: Go For It!

This was such a fun afternoon for both myself (a non sporting type) and my boyfriend (a very sporting type). Georgina and Martin who ran the session were both incredibly genuine and friendly, and their enthusiasm for the sports so close to their heritage made the session very fun but also an educational experience. They were very accommodating and encouraging, and made even myself (who missed the ball most times I went to kick it!) feel a part of the game. My boyfriend has also since googled where he can play Gaelic football in the West Midlands!! We would both definitely recommend it to anyone up for a bit of fun.

When I decided with my friends to go to Experience Gaelic Games I did not what to expect. This visit did exceed my expectations and I would recommend it to all that like sporting holidays during holidays.

Thank you for your comments but this is NOT A REVIEW OF EXPERIENCE GAELIC GAMES. At Experience Gaelic Games we bring visitors to local gaelic clubs where we explain why gaelic games mean so much more than just sport. We explain why there are over 2000+ gaelic clubs on this small island and why players play on front of huge crowds with no payment. Most importantly we introduce all our visitors to the games by teaching how to play the games. It's much better fun participating than spectating. After a session with us - spectating at a game is a much richer experience. Perhaps this review should be posted elsewhere as it's NOT review of the attraction Experience Gaelic Games.

We were 13 guys from Sweden, who tried The Gaelic Games september 2013. It was sweaty, intense and very funny. It was a really great afternoon and the coach was fantastic, made us all to really go in to the games. Warmly recommended!
