We had a great time at the experience with 10 friends from Holland. Warm welcome and introduction from Georgina and good explanation from Brian. Excellent thing to do when you are with friends in Dublin.

“This set the tone for our trip!”
Reviewed 3 November 2013

We signed up to try the Gaelic Games the first day of our trip. Our instructor, Brian, was excellent at explaining the rules and teaching the basic skills for each of the games. We had a blast. Little did we know, the All Ireland Hurling Championship would be played that weekend. We sat in a Pub with all the locals watching the game on the edge of our seats. We became obsessed. We watched the final end as a tie and learned it would be replayed again 3 weeks later! We became huge Hurling fans and visited Croke Stadium as well. We made a point of finding an Irish bar in Chicago to watch the game be replayed. We tell everyone how much fun we had learning the sport, watching it played, and submersing ourselves in the Irish culture. You've got to try this!!

“6 german soccer boys learned Hurling”
Reviewed 30 October 2013

We had a lot of fun practicing the gaelic sports. Our Coach Martin was really fantastic, we had heavy muscle ache after the exercises.The people at the Club where absolutely great. It was interesting to get introduced to the background of culture and social relevance of the GA Clubs. Absolutely amazing that the top players are still in amateur status.
Go there and experience it!!
