It was the fastest 4 hours we've ever spent. My 11-year old son and I wanted to experience some of the truly Irish (Gaelic) sports and we were not disappointed. It was so interesting and refreshing to learn about some new sports so different from the mundane North America sports of hockey, baseball, football and basketball. The staff at the Na Fianna GAA Club was so friendly and greeted us warmly. We started by watching a quick video of the three games that we'd be learning: hurling, Gaelic football and handball. We then proceeded to the outdoors to get our basic training of hurling followed by a game amongst the group that we were in. After a 15-20 minute water break, we followed the same process for Gaelic football then again for handball. While we had tons of fun we also worked and sweat a LOT so this activity is not for those looking for a leisurely walk in the park. Wear good sports shows and proper sports attire and if you go in the summer as we did, bring a towel and extra change of clothes. And drink lots of water. I would recommend this activity to tourists who wanna try something different and unique to Ireland.
