    Rugby Tour advice PLEASE...?

    Morning Folks

    I am organising a rugby tour from Newcastle Upon Tyne for a bunch of veterans, age ranges from 35- 50+. We are a bit decrepit and planning to find a team to play a game of touch rugby against, weekend of 22nd-24th May 2020.

    The main question I have is, where would be best for a rugby tour in terms of nightlife etc.. for a bunch of around 20 people. Places we are considering are Cork, Kilkenny,Kilarney,Limerick,Galway.

    We are flying into Dublin and considering hiring a bus.

    Yours in RUGBY

        Galway. Would probably between wegians/Corinthians be a team or two you could play and i think Oughterard had/have a vets team on occasion and theyd travel in if you had side to play if needed rather than ye travelling out there

            I think Galway is a disaster from that point of view. I’m biased but I reckon ye’d have a cracking time in Limerick. It’s a bigger rugby city, good nightlife and almost every pub in town (if not every pub in town) would welcome you with open arms.

              I dont see Galway as a disaster having experienced the city with sides on tour from abroad

                Cork, Limerick and Galway are totally different prospects to smaller towns, so I'd restrict your list to those 3 just in terms of nightlife and accommodation options.

                Galway does have a reputation for being hard to navigate in groups, but that's true all over. Every rugby tour I've been on for years has had to split into 4s to get anywhere.

                One thing I would warn you of though is that Irish pubs aren't likely to be tolerant of the sort of antics that might happen on a rugby tour in Warsaw or Prague (and I've been on those with English clubs, so I'm not criticising).

                Irish pubs will sell you large quantities of beer, but you'll all be out on your ear if someone gets their arse out. Generally speaking, anyway.

                "We will not walk in fear, one of another. We will not be driven into an age of unreason if we dig deep into our history and remember we are not descended from fearful men" Edward R Murrow

                "Little by little, we have been brought into the present condition in which we are able neither to tolerate the evils from which we suffer, nor the remedies we need to cure them." - Livy

                  Thanks for the input. We are a bunch of old fogies so there wont be any arses on display. We have narrowed it down to Limerick or Galway, Limerick because it is more a rugby city and we have heard good things about Galway.

                    If you've got your own bus then Galway is barely an hour up the M-way from Limerick.

                      That’s good to know Rathbaner. Would be great if we can visit both Limerick and Galway
