What a hoot!!
We had a fun, informative, active afternoon (but you don't have to be too active if you don't want to! Mum came too!). It was well organised and Andrew and Peter where patient and skilled. Would recommend it to any one. If you go, challenge Andrew to hit the post 5 times in a row...he did it for us!!!😋

Informative, hands on experience with a great guide!
Mar 2019
Andy (or the tall guy) was our guide/instructor for the experience. We met right inside Lanigan's and took a walk to the field. It was a beautiful day and Andy answered any questions and provided history about Kilkenny hurling along the way. The experience was very hands on and a lot of fun. Andy was very knowledgeable about the sport and spent time with everyone. The group included an older gentleman who was from Kilkenny, but hadn't been back in years. Although he was unable to actively participate in the hurling ,the interaction Andy had with him was great! For anyone looking to learn more about the sport and history, I recommend this experience. There is an option for a lunch afterwards, which I also would recommend! Thanks to Andy for his time and for making this a very memorable experience!

Cancelled with No Notice
Mar 2019 • Couples
We booked over a month in advance and they cancelled after the time we were supposed to have started the activity. We were really looking forward to the experience due to all of the great reviews. We were there about an hour early and the bartender/waiter told us our instructor would be there at the appointed time. We ordered food and waited. The time came and went and he never showed. We inquired again and were told he was in a meeting upstairs. We waited for a few minutes longer and were then told by another gentleman that the instructor would not be coming and offered us a cash refund. We did not have a very flexible schedule for this part of our trip in Ireland and were not able to experience multiple other sites and activities in Kilkenny and other cities due to the the scheduled time of the activity and the time they notified us of the cancellation. We were never given a reason why it was cancelled. I'm sure it would have been a lot of fun, and the waiter at the pub was very friendly and helpful, but this cancellation caused us to lose an entire day of activities and site-seeing in Ireland.

Hurling Lesson
Jan 2019 • Friends
Andrew was so patient and kind when teaching our group how to play hurling. After getting the basics down we did some drills then moved on to a game. Andrew joined in, adding some skill, and made the experience extremely enjoyable.

Super Fun and Enriching Experience
Jan 2019 • Business
Andrew, our instructor, was extremely kinda and was a good teacher. He is an amazing hurler and he taught us very well. We learned through experience, which is the best way to learn an activity or sport for me. I enjoyed the experience and highly recommend it for everyone who wishes to engage in a true Irish tradition.

This was the first time I had ever played hurling, and Andrew made the sport easy to learn and the experience exciting. This is definitely a must-try for anyone who has never played hurling before!

Super fun!
I recently did this with the group I was traveling with and it was so fun! I was intrigued as to how hurling was played and everything that went with it. Andy was an amazing coach and taught everything very well. The time flew by because we were having so much fun. Definitely worth it!

A very unique experience
I’ve always been a bit intrigued by hurling and when we stumbled across this tour we knew we wanted to try it. Andrew was an excellent, upbeat coach that made the experience a lot of fun. I’m ready to buy a hurly for my office and take my “game” down the hall. The only downside is the long 15-20 minute walk to and from the field. Not that I can’t use the exercise and it was a good pregame warmup... this is really a uniquely Irish experience for kids of all ages.... and the young at heart.

Great time! You need to do this!
Apr 2018 • Couples
So much fun! This was a great change of pace from the usual touristy things. We learned a lot about Irish culture and their love of this sport. It was nice to get outside and move around and just be physical. Our guide/instructor was awesome! Super personable, knowledgeable, and a great and patient teacher. He answered all of our questions about the sport, growing up in Ireland, and anything else we could think to ask. We had an AMAZING time! You need to do this! I wish we had pictures to share, but we were too busy playing to take any!!
