After an engaging cultural introduction, we will take your student group outside to take part in 3 sports (Gaelic Football, Hurling and Gaelic Handball) in the heart of the local community, in a local GAA club.
Water is provided throughout the session and we’ll supply all the equipment you’ll need including footballs, hurls, helmets, sliothars etc etc.
All you need to bring along are a pair of flat-soled shoes and a willingness to have fun. Changing and shower facilities are provided at Na Fianna Gaelic Club, although you will need to supply your own towel.
About Our Games
Experience Gaelic Games gives visitors the perfect, local insight into the cultural phenomenon that is Gaelic Games. Little celebrates the difference of Irish culture more profoundly than the existence of 2,200 local community based/Irish Gaelic clubs. These games date back over 3,000 years (all the way back to 1272 BC).
The clubs are the custodians of Irish ancient Gaelic culture – promoting our language, music, dance and most famously – our ancient warrior tribal sports. We bring you into a local club, and give you the opportunity to go beyond the norm to really experience local Ireland.
Our trainers are excellent with people. They’re passionate about what they do and will take time and effort with every single participant. It is important to remember that none of the group need to be particularly sporty. It is all good fun and the emphasis is on participating with your friends and colleagues.
