School Rugby Tour to Dublin

Best time to travel: September to May

Choose a school rugby tour to Dublin and experience the Irish passion for the sport. The national team is consistently ranked among the top ten in the world by World Rugby. The game has developed significantly in Ireland in recent years, thanks in no small part to the creation of the Pro12 competition. 

Dublin is home to the country’s most successful team, Leinster. The city also offers plenty of local opposition of a high standard for your team to pit their skills against. 

Add match tickets to your package, to watch a Pro12 or Six Nations fixture at the iconic Aviva Stadium. Also not to be missed is the Gaelic Sports Experience – learn about Irish culture through the national sports of hurling, handball and Gaelic football!
