School Pre Season Rugby Tour to Gormanston Park

Your school pro training rugby tour to Gormanston Park offers your students the opportunity to focus on their rugby skills. You’ll stay and train at Gormanston Park, just north of Dublin. 

Gormanston Park boasts excellent facilities for school rugby tours, including well-maintained playing fields and pitches, as well as the biggest indoor sports hall in Ireland. There’s also a lovely beach within walking distance. You’ll stay in the onsite accommodation, which offers dormitory-style rooms for students and singles or twins for staff. 

You can choose to add the Pro 14 match tickets to your tour, to give your students the chance to see the professionals in action. And you’ll also have the opportunity to explore some of Dublin’s attractions on your school rugby tour to Ireland.
