GAA Museum Cú Chulainn Workshop

A Cú Chulainn History Workshop offers primary school pupils an opportunity to step back in time to an ancient land of legends, magic, kings and warriors.

This hands-on history workshop allows children to discover what life was like for Cú Chulainn in the Iron Age through storytelling and the use of props and costumes.

The Cú Chulainn workshop takes place in the museum's activity room, Cú Chulainn's Den.


This workshop is offered on request to pre-booked groups of 20-30 children and is suitable for children aged 7-12 years. The workshop duration is 30 minutes.
