  1. Neil's Group

    Thank you so much for an fun-packed weekend, we had a great time.

    I can’t believe we tried our hand at Gaelic football, hurling and handball, all in one afternoon. We really got an insight into Irish culture and your passion for it really shone through.

    Your facilities were excellent, especially the all-weather pitch. We would recommend this to any group coming to Ireland.

    Thanks again!!!

    I knew nothing about Gaelic Games prior to our day, but had a great time- we were really well looked after by lovely people and the club was well-equipped and welcoming. The passion that the coaches had for their sport was infectious and the games themselves required real skill and fitness. Sadly we had neither, but we all had a fantastic day.

  3.  Andy

    We had a whale of a time trying out sports most of us had never even heard of. The coaches were brilliant, and everyone at the club was very friendly and helpful. We spent a whole week in Dublin and enjoyed every minute of it, but our visit at was the absolute highlight of our stay. Thanks a lot for everything!

  4. Dear Gerogina and the guys,

    Last Saturday we from the company TANIQ were your guests at the Gaelic Games Experience and we had the most exciting, thrilling, competitive and fun team building experience!! For me it was the highlight of the weekend.
    The Gaelic Football was nice to start with because everybody is a little familiar with football although the Gaelic brings in a whole new dimension. The Hurling was the most adventurous game of them all and something that takes a lot of skill. Thanks to your professional coaching we were soon able to play a game. Handball was probably the easiest game to play and nice to blow off the last of our steam.

    We totally loved your passion for the games. Together with your great hospitality this passion really radiated on us.

    Although it was almost freezing outside and the pitch was covered in snow we had the time of our life! You guys are great and everybody who wants a full, true and real Irish experience should come to your club for the experience for sure!

    We found a club in the Netherlands nearby and actually in the town where I live, so I might join them thanks to you guys.

    We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did and will definitely come by again if we end up in Dublin. We definitely recommend you to friends, family, colleagues and anyone who likes sports and history.

    Thank you so much for all on behalf of our whole group,
    Hope to meet you again and kind regards,

    Not even the rain could change the unique experience playing Irish sports at the Gaelic Games Experience! You didn’t just let us try but also gave us an insight into Irish culture and really let us feel as part of it, which was awesome. Especially we loved your openness and cordiality.
    It is definitely something to remember and to recommend to anybody that is spending some time in Dublin.
    ps. what really sticks to us is the “good stuff” you always used. Our group loved the Irish accent and we actually sometimes use the “good stuff” in class :) !

    Thank you very very much for everything.
    I hope to come there again!

    Best wishes from Switzerland

    We have just returned home after a weekend in Dublin and I would like to thank Everyone at ‘Experience Gaelic Games’ for making us feel so welcome (especially Georgina, excellent sarnies!). We thoroughly enjoyed every minute of the day. All of the coaches were fantastic and had great ‘craic’ and I would strongly recommend this experience to anyone visiting Dublin. Fantastic group of staff and great facilities.

    Thanks for such a brilliant time learning some traditional Irish sports! We all thoroughly enjoyed the experience, made even better by the fair weather and the enthusiasm of your staff whose willingness to let us have fun (particularly at the expense of the stag who was dressed as a woman!) made for the perfect group activity!

    A highly recommended afternoon!

  8.  Ffion (Nia's Hen)

    I am writing to thank you all at Na Fianna GAA club. We had a wonderful time on Saturday, it was a thoroughly enjoyable experience, and we all felt so welcome. I didn’t realise we were there for so long, we couldn’t get enough of Hurling and Gaelic Football!
    I can’t wait until my next visit to Dublin, I would love to make a return visit!
    Thank you all so much,
    “Diolch yn Fawr”
    Ffion and the Girls.

  9.  The Vikings

    We visited Na Fianna and had a tremendous time experiencing the Gaelic Specialities: Gaelic Football, Hurling and Celi Dance! The coaches were great, and we had great fun playing against each other. The service and friendliness made us feel perfectly at home, and we’ll recommend this to any group who want to experience some authentic Irish culture!

  10.  Lynn O'Rourke (JJ's Hen Party)

    We had such a brilliant day. We didn’t know quite what to expect but little did we realise what a pleasant surprise we were in for.
    Our sides hurt so much from laughing by the end of the day!!! The personal touches you put to the day made it so special for my sister (the hen).
    The facilities you had were excellent. We all thought we were pro’s by the time we were leaving.
    Thank you so so much!!! You’re brilliant. I totally recommend this for a hen party(or any other excuse you can think of to go)!!!!
    Love, the Dublin Hen party
