We will say that Gaelic Games and Dance should be experienced by every visitor to our shores. We take participants of all abilities, shapes and sizes! This is about a unique Irish experience and getting to try something only available in Ireland. Have a look at our TripAdvisor reviews and you will see that we take all sorts of people on our sessions.
There is physical activity involved in Experience Gaelic Games sessions! You don’t need to be super fit, as we tailor our sessions to suit the group profile and ability. We will ensure that participants only do what is suited to their abilities.
We run our Dublin sessions in a real Gaelic Club, called “Na Fianna”. This club is based in Glasnevin, just 10mins from Dublin city centre, so it is easily accessible.
There are three buses which stop directly outside the club (the number 4 and 9 and 155 ). The bus runs from the main street in Dublin, O’Connell Street, heading north side. The bus journey takes no more 10 minutes.
