What is Gaelic football?
Gaelic football is similar to soccer except you are allowed to handle the ball. It’s played on a very large pitch with H shaped goals at either end. Like hurling, a goal is worth three points and an “over” (getting the ball over the crossbar but between the uprights) is worth one point.
What does the experience involve?
Experience Gaelic Games is all about having fun while immersing yourself in the very essence of Irish life and culture. Lasting three hours and based in a local GAA club, this adventure will take you to the heart of authentic Ireland.
What is hurling
Hurling is our national sport and it has prehistoric origins. It’s our ancient Gaelic warrior sport and is referenced in all our ancient myths and legends. It is best described as a cross between field hockey and lacrosse and is played with a stick and ball. Hurling is considered to be the oldest and fastest field sport in the world.
Who is the experience for?
It’s for everyone: we look after families, reunions, corporate team building groups, stag parties, hen groups, friends, classes, tours and sports teams of all sizes and all ages from all over the world. Visitors from US presidents to the New Zealand All Blacks have experienced Gaelic games – it’s time you did too.
What is Handball?
Gaelic Handball is a really simple ball game played in an indoor or outdoor alley – just like the internationally better-known sports of squash or racquetball but without the racquets.
Who is behind Experience Gaelic Games?
Experience Gaelic Games is the brainchild of Gaelic games and Irish culture fanatics Cormac O’Donnchú and Georgina Caraher. When they realised there was nothing like this for visiting groups looking for things to do in Dublin, they put together a panel of coaches and the experience was born.
