Gaelic Football and Hurling

Ireland is home to two of its own unique sports that originated here on the island of Ireland. Gaelic football and hurling matches are unbelievable to watch, with such an exciting and electric atmosphere around the pitch.

Irish Dancing

Irish dancing is a big part of Irish culture and Ireland’s national identity. There’s barely a family in Ireland who hasn’t had their child attend Irish dancing lessons hoping to produce the next Michael Flatley. The worldwide success of Riverdance really brought Irish dancing to the world’s attention and showed what an amazing and exciting experience it is to be a part of. There’s something magical about seeing Irish dancing performed live, and it is a wonderful cultural experience.
