    Was a fun tour with lots of physical exercise. The walk to and from the pitch may be a little too long for some older folks. Overall, an experience for all ages and backgrounds. Lots of fun and educational. Wear comfortable clothes and shoes.

    This was fun! Not knowing anything about the game before arriving in Ireland and to actually try the game first hand, was a fun experience, even though I may have missed a hit or two. Kudos to the players of Hurling as it is a unique sport everyone should at least try once in their lifetime. Definitely recommend!
