“Great way to pass a few hours with a group of mates”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

Fabulous way to learn not just about some new sports but to learn about Irish history and culture. Georgina welcomed us warmly and made us feel very at home while Martin did a great job of teaching us the basics.

Recommend dressing warmly and stretching before and after. Plan this so that you have some time afterwards to recover because if you're at all competitive, you'll be pretty sore for a day or two.

The crew took team photos for us but if you want to get any action shots, bring your own camera.

“Fantastic day experience!”
Reviewed 20 April 2014

Never having heard much about Gaelic games I thought I would give it a try based on the reviews here on Tripadvisor. Basically the experience involves learning about the history of Gaelic games including handball and the gaelic version of football. After that, we were taken downstairs for hands on instruction and practice. It was an absolute blast and fit for anyone to try!

Everyone in the group I was in had a fantastic day and couldnt stop smiling and laughing (despite the Irish weather :P). I would definitely recommend people to give this a try when visiting Dublin.

“Great activity for sporting teens”
Reviewed 12 April 2014

Our 16 year old daughter and a friends' son, who are both keen on sports, took part on Monday 7th. They were in a group with some Spanish teenagers and they had a go at handball, hurling and Gaelic football. The activities were all led in a professional and very friendly way, and the enthusiasm of the leaders really came through. Both teens had a fantastic time and rated this their top thing to do out of 3 days in Dublin. The location is easily reached by bus, and is close to the Botanic Gardens and Glasnevin Cemetery. The activity cost €25 each, which is the juvenile fee (35 for adults). We thought it represented value for money, given that they have talked about it ever since!

“One of the best things we did in Ireland!”
Reviewed 11 April 2014

If you're going to Dublin this should be at the TOP of your list :)

My boyfriend and I went with two other friends and we had an amazing time. You learn about the history and culture of the sport and you can really see the importance of it and commitment to it in the club. We really felt apart of it all! You're taught the skills, you practice and then play the three sports in a big group. It was just a lot of fun, great to be outside and moving about.

Georgina was so helpful when booking and the coaches we had on the day were fantastic. This was an absolute highlight and I would absolutely recommend it to everyone!
