Ireland with its postcard beauty….welcomes you to timeless, lush green landscapes of a country filled with history at every footstep. A country with friendly people, great hosts, and an extremely strong sporting culture makes a sports tour to Ireland an ideal option for any touring team. From the mighty sea Cliffs of Moher to prehistoric monuments and ruins of Ireland’s past such a Glendalough, which bring this rich history to life. The prehistoric ruins of castles, homesteads, and fortresses that scatter the land are contrasted by the world-class museums, entertainment, and superb shopping and dining experiences available within this modernized metropolis. We recommend the hotspots of Dublin, Cork, and Galway for a short tour across the Irish Sea. The Irish are passionate and keep their traditional Gaelic sports including Football and Hurling alive. Rugby is a passion throughout the regions of Leinster and Munster and there is plenty of football, hockey, cricket and girls’ netball throughout the country. An easy and great destination for most sports with competitive gamesmanship.
Main Sports Offered include Rugby, Hockey, Netball, Golf and Football/soccer.
