Dublin, capital of the Republic of Ireland, is on Ireland’s east coast at the mouth of the River Liffey. Ireland has always been a favourite with our rugby teams since we started in 1989. Whilst Dublin is one of Europe’s oldest cities, it retains its historical and cultural charms. Rugby teams love Dublin as a touring destination because of itss reputation as a “party city”. The people are friendly, the ales are wonderful and there’s no shortage of welcoming pubs, bars, nightclubs and fantastic places to eat.
