Portugal has fantastic beaches with the weather to match which makes it a great location for a European rugby tour. There is a brilliant festival in Lisbon that we take underage teams to. There is also a fabulous beach side town half way between Lisbon and Porto that offers an amazing array facilities that are ideal for serious training or a weekend of rugby and fun.
French clubs are extremely welcoming to touring teams. From Paris to the rugby heartland of the south-west, France is one of the best rugby countries in the world to tour to. With such a large number of rugby clubs at all levels we can easily organise a blitz with local teams. Good value and great food is assured.
Spain is an excellent choice of location for a team tour as they have great weather and fantastic facilities. We have organised numerous tours to Spain for underage teams looking for some fun matches as well as fun activities.
Italy is fast becoming a hot tour destination as it has a great combination of rugby, weather, culture and nightlife. It is one of the cheapest European destinations but with no dilution of facilities or services.
Holland is great for your not so typical rugby tour. Whether you want to experience the infamous night life of Amsterdam, the famous windmills and tulips or see the modern architecture of Rotterdam, the Netherlands never fails to disappoint.
The UK is a great destination for rugby tours with so many cities that are enshrined in rugby culture that also have a great night life. Travelling to/from Ireland is easily done by either plane or ferry. Particularly popular tours are our coach and ferry options to Wales or Manchester area. This represents great value and often an ideal starter tour for underage club teams, school teams and colleges.
Australia is one of the ultimate team tour destination with awesome beaches, practically guaranteed weather and a wide variety of teams ensuring you are well matched on the pitch. Our tour experience to Australia includes The British & Irish Lions Tour 2013 and for Ireland’s tour in June 2018. We have a large number of great contacts in Australia who are always very keen to host touring sides.
With one of the strongest club scenes in the world Argentina is one of our favourite destinations. The clubs are a real family affair and be ready to be welcomed with smoking BBQ’s and great singing! Buenos Aires is a city full of history and sport. Include the cities of Rossario and Cordoba and you have an incredible tour already. Iguazu Falls on the Argentinean/Paraguayan/Brazilian border is one the world’s most incredible natural wonders and worth every effort to travel to on tour.
New Zealand is probably most rugby peoples Holy Grail. As a company we have lucky to have been there over ten times. Our knowledge of those special places and special people really does add to the success of a tour to New Zealand.
Although the sheer size of Canada can be daunting, it is easily accessible from Western Europe and Ottawa and Montreal are especially great places to play rugby in. Canada have injected big funding into rugby and have highly competitive womens teams.
Rugby is very spread out in the USA. Rugby is strong on the west coast in both San Francisco and Seattle. On the east coast there is rich rugby belt that runs from Boston down to Washington including New York and Philadelphia. This is by no means an exhaustive list and if you want to tour the States you will get one of the warmest welcomes in world rugby.
If we had to pick one country to tour to it would have to be South Africa. Stunning scenery, amazing rugby mad people and incredible value all add up to make the Rainbow Nation a must visit for a rugby team.

Top Ireland Tour Locations
Ireland’s capital is a main attraction for any tour to Ireland. With many sights to see and plenty of teams, Dublin is a great choice for a rugby tour. The Guinness Storehouse, Temple Bar, The Irish Whiskey Museum and a walk through the Phoenix Park are top of the list of things to do in Dublin. If the fixture list ties in with your tour dates we will incorporate watching Leinster, one of Europe’s most successful club teams.
Killarney is the gateway to the famous Ring of Kerry. If you are looking for amazing scenery, traditional Irish music and the best pints of Guinness then include Killarney on your tour. It is not a traditional rugby stronghold because Kerry is the most successful Gaelic Football county in Ireland. However, there are many junior rugby clubs just waiting to invite you for a match and look after you post-match!
Limerick is a city of rugby that stands strong as the home of Munster, who have lit up world rugby with some of the most historic European games ever played in Ireland. A visit to Munster’s stadium, Thomond Park and its Rugby Museum is a must. Without doubt, Limerick is an ideal destination for touring teams.
Cork is Ireland’s second largest city with massive culture, diversity and people who take great pride in their history. Be sure to make time to kiss the Blarney Stone! They are many rugby strongholds in Cork and a great night life to boot. The ‘People’s Republic’ is always inviting and great craic is guaranteed.
Go on an adventure in Belfast with Black Cab tours down the city’s historical streets. The phenomenal Game of Thrones tour is always a firm favourite along with the Giant’s Causeway and the internationally acclaimed Titanic Exhibition. Belfast is the home to Ulster Rugby and their wonderful Kingspan Stadium is a caldron on match days.
Ireland’s west coast and Wild Atlantic Way provide a fantastic setting for a picturesque tour with a great night life. Galway city is a hotpot of activity and is home to the Connacht pro team. When travelling to/from Limerick we include the iconic Cliffs of Moher which are a fantastic spectacle that needs to be seen to be fully appreciated.
