A fun way to spend a couple hours. Learn some basic hurling moves and then eat some stew. Definitely recommended!

The national sport of Ireland, Hurling, can be discovered within roughly two hours. First you get some information about the game and then you walk to a nearby Hurling field and learn to play. Very nice people run this educational and sportive attraction.
