Welcome Welsh Rugby supporters!
Six Nations Champions Ireland are facing Wales in the Guinness Summer Series in the Aviva Stadium on Saturday the 29th of August. The Irish Team are on a high following their recent victories over Scotland. As always we are happy to welcome the Dragons supporters to Dublin. Regardless of the result, we know you’ll leave with smiles on your faces and here’s why. The Dublin Visitor Centre team have some great recommendation on what to do while you are in town, before and after the big match! (Click here for a list of the best rugby hotels in Dublin).
Pick up your Go Dublin Pass and explore the city in style on the City Sightseeing Hop on Hop off Tour. Visit Dublin’s number one attraction, the Guinness Storehouse and travel on one of the most popular day tours from Dublin to Wicklow.
Best known as a city of music and craic stop into most any pub in Temple Bar – Oliver St. John Gogarty’s, The Temple Bar, The Quay’s – or around the city – The Stag’s Head, The Cobblestone, O’Donohue’s – to enjoy some traditional Irish music and singing. For lovers of the more contemporary live music scene check out Whelan’s or Sweeny’s. Those without tickets – no matter! Watch the match with locals in any city centre pub and enjoy the friendly banter and atmosphere with Ireland supporters!
Do a stadium Tour – visit Dublin’s other great stadium, Croke Park and take in the history and awe of Ireland’s native sports, Gaelic football & Hurling. A tradition that goes back over three millennia, Gaelic games are the number one sport in Ireland. Did you know that hurling is the fastest field game in the world and that a Gaelic footballer has never taken a dive! It is said that Australian Rules Football is a mixture of the Gaelic and rugby!
