In Freshford, We offer guests the chance to partake in the ultimate traditional Irish experience at Kavanagh's Pub, a traditional Irish-style bar in the heart of the community that is brimming with Irish tradition and culture.


Here we give visitors an introduction to the history and rules of Hurling. Once visitors are up-to-date on the basics of Hurling, we bring them out onto the green area to try the sport for themselves. Our coaches teach visitors the ground-stroke, hand-pass, solo-run and hand strike before having the chance to take a shot at the goalposts for themselves.

Groups of 30+ can also avail of our ultimate Irish experience. After the tour, we will go back into the bar to give visitors a unique look at how the famous ash stick is crafted. Visitors will gain an insight into what makes a hurley special to players and the different preferences by each player. We end the tour with finger food and a traditional Irish musician keeping a positive upbeat note that only the Irish can manage. Nothing says 'Ireland' like a visit to a small country pub listening to some traditional Irish 'ceol', it really is a truely Irish cultural experience.
