International rugby: The gift that keeps giving in 2017

June 16, 2017

For fans of international rugby, 2017 is turning into a rich and memorable year. Hot on the heels of a high scoring RBS 6 Nations championship when Ireland denied England back-to-back Grand Slams on the final day in Dublin, the British & Irish Lions are currently providing frenetic but blockbuster entertainment in New Zealand as they wind up to an epic test match series against the world champions. 

Ask a rugby fan when they fell in love with the game and often you’ll hear fond memories of long weekends spent with family and friends watching their heroes pull on the national jersey in electrifying surroundings. The unique atmosphere of an international rugby weekend turns capital cities into cauldrons of entertainment and November’s Guinness Series in Dublin will be no different. 

At Activity Breaks, we’ve spent years honing the perfect ticket and accommodation packages for supporters to enjoy. First up on Saturday 11th November, the Springboks roll into town when Ireland will look to exact revenge for a heroically fought but losing 2016 summer test series in South Africa. An expectant sell-out crowd at the Aviva Stadium will be keen to see both progress and green shoots appear as minds start to wander towards the World Cup in Japan 2019.

Next in line on 18th November, free-running Fiji will test themselves against the men in green before the intensity is wound up again for the arrival of Argentina on 25th November as the Pumas bring their dynamic brand of rugby to Dublin. All packages include Category One tickets and two-nights’ city-centre accommodation at the 3* Hilton Garden Inn Dublin Custom House.

For rugby fans keen to combine a city break with a rugby international weekend, our variety of RBS 6 Nations packages in Rome, Paris, Edinburgh and Dublin are also now available and provide the perfect opportunity for a break with a loved one or a group of friends. If we don’t have your perfect break already set up and ready to book, we’ll work to tailor a package to your needs, whatever the colour of your team’s jersey! Just email your request to
