My boyfriend picked this place out as his choice after I dragged him along to lots of sight seeing! We loved it. 90 minutes of pure adrenaline, sports action, competition and good fun! The sports actually are very tricky and you certainly need to take it seriously (we didnt!) to score well. There was some healthy competition between us, but... More

Had a try at this with my son to repay him for being toured around Connemara. Great fun, I think provided you're the type of person who likes sports and is willing to give stuff a go. Website says it all but I would add that the staff are most helpful, particularly for sports you aren't familiar with, like hurling... More

The lads took me here on my stags. About a 10-15 min trek outside the city. Pure skill is exactly what it says on the tin. Don’t let the videos/reviews cod you. You may think its easy but it’s a different story when your in the cages. It really does require skill/good hand eye co-ordination. ON arrival you get a... More

This is another example of a place I didn't want to go, but ended up having a great time. Simply you move from section to section trying out various sports/ball related skills. There are crowds of noisy children/adolescents - but if you take a step back you see that they are having fun and (mostly) encouraging each other. One major... More

Really surprisingly well organised. The whole sports place is brilliant, lots of fun, and everything is just brilliant, must do if coming to Galway.

Had a great time in Pure Skill. Well setup and very professional facilities. There were over 20 of us and we went around in groups of 3 -4 people. The only down side was that our card time ran out before we were finished so one of the guys working there had to use his card to get us in... More
