The group had never played hurling before but it was such a fun introduction to the sport. Andrew and Kevin were the hilarious and set the tone for the day! Great laugh!

This was SO much fun! We had a large group with only two instructors but they did so well teaching us and playing the game with us! Two days later I’m still sore but it was way more fun than I expected!!

First, I see some people had some not so great comments. I think that could be fixed by setting reasonable expectations. Let the management know what you have paid for before getting started. Also know that you do not have to book on line, call...More
