Attend top league match in All Ireland Rugby League


A match in Thomond Park is one not to be missed. It's not just about watching the match. It's about listening and watching the crowd. They are passionate fans! Thomond Park is one of the greatest places in the world to watch rugby and it is there that Munster defeated the All Blacks in 1978, 12-0!


Day 4


Tour


Visit Bunratty Castle & surrounding area


Bus transfer to hostel in Galway City


Galway is the capital of the west of Ireland. It's a really unique cosmopolitan city with plenty to do from horse racing to traditional music and it's an important centre for promoting arts and crafts. The inner city is now pedestrianised and a walk through the narrow lanes and streets means you're never far from your port of call.

Standing 230 metres above the ground at their highest point and 8km long, the Cliffs boast one of the most amazing views in Ireland.

Galway is one of Ireland's most popular getaway places, so there's always plenty of "craic" here! And if a pint or two is on your agenda, you can be sure there's no shortage of pubs.


Day 6


2nd match of tour vs top Galway rugby club


Rugby has been played in Connacht (province of Galway) for 120 years which is surprising as hurling and gaelic football are huge sports here.

Transfer to Dublin by bus


Day 7


Free day to explore Dublin, the capital city. There are many ways to see Dublin, many like to tour the city on foot, sampling the sights, sounds, and tastes of the city as they go. Others prefer to take a less energetic approach and avail of one of the many hop-on-hop-off tour buses that criss-cross the city. Whatever way you decide to go, Dublin has loads to offer. But even if you just wander around the city and stop off in a pub or two, you're bound to have a good time!


Day 8


3rd match of tour vs top Dublin Club


Home to the hallowed ground of Lansdowne Rugby Stadium, it's not surprising that rugby is a really popular sport in Dublin.
