Tour Testimonials

Some testimonials from tour guests that have travelled with us over the years.

Mallow RFC
U15 Tour to Wales, April 2023

Thank you to Paul and everyone else involved at RTI in organising a great tour. It was very well organised and everything went smoothly. Thanks again.

Anna, Cork
Toulouse v Munster, January 2023

Everything ran like clockwork from check in, match tickets, transfers to the hotel, stadium and airport. Very professionally done.

Noel, Limerick
Toulouse v Munster, January 2023

Excellent service and knowledgeable staff assisting us through the whole event from start to finish was so encouraging for me and my son to know.

Suzanne, Co. Dublin
Toulouse v Munster, January 2023

To be honest, I was very impressed. I have never travelled with RTI before and everything was seamless. Hotel was 3* but very clean and comfortable. Transfers very efficient and staff made it all happen with good humour.

Lynda, Co.Wicklow
Toulouse v Munster, January 2023

Everything was excellently run. Superb. RTI staff are amazing. Super trip.

Terry, Waterford
NZ Summer Tour 2022

Now that the dust has settled on the tour I just wanted to drop you and the team at RTI a quick note. I can say wholeheartedly that my family enjoyed the tour immensely, superb organisation as it has to be for such a large travelling group but yet extremely personal at the same time. Caragh, Sara and Paul were a credit to your business and themselves on the tour. Nothing was ever too much trouble, always done with a friendly smile and a helping hand. Also have to say that Donal and Quinny were amazing, so generous with their time and personal insights. It was the first time I had the pleasure of meeting them and they really are superb ambassadors for not just RTI, but for the game of rugby as well. All around sound gentlemen.

Villiers School
Team Tour to Salou - 2022

Had a great tour to Spain and would like to thank Rugby Travel Ireland for all their help organising it. Looking forward to something similar again in the future.

Valerie & Bobby, Portadown
NZ Summer Tour 2022

Just want to thank you for all your organisation and help during our trip to NZ. We thoroughly enjoyed the trip with all the add on trips and pre match hospitality The results made it even more enjoyable. We can say “we were there”.

Linda & Lar, Dublin
NZ Summer Tour 2022

Just a quick note to say how brilliant the trip to New Zealand was. Everything went very well and we had a ball. The series win was fantastic and we celebrated as only the Irish can. Our fellow supporters and the leaders gelled together and, given how up in the air everything was over the past few months, the tour really was a triumph. Here’s to the next trip.

Anthony, Limerick
Toulouse v Munster, January 2023

I thought the trip was very well organised. I took my 14-year-old son on his first away trip, and he loved every minute. We never considered the ticket seat location in the stadium, that was an unbelievable surprise for him when he noticed we were in around the half way line. Very happy young man after his week. Thanks to all involved.

Tony & Mary, Kildare
NZ Summer Tour 2022

On behalf of Mary & I, we would like to thank you all for such an amazing trip. To say it was a holiday of a lifetime is no exaggeration. We’ll both have lifelong memories of our time in New Zealand. Thanks again.

Trudie, Dublin
NZ Summer Tour 2022

Just a quick email to thank you for such a great experience in NZ. It’s the first time we have travelled with you guys for a tour, and it certainly won’t be the last!!

France v Ireland - Six Nations Paris 2022

I just wanted to record my grateful thanks for a wonderful trip which went well beyond my expectations with regard to the service delivered. Everything that was within your control, and a few things that weren’t, turned up trumps. Airport check-in, aircraft seating, transfers, hotel check-in arrangements, pre-match lunch, weather etc, were perfectly organised and executed.

France v Ireland - Six Nations Paris 2022

A huge thank you to yourselves and all the team at Rugby Travel Ireland for a fantastic weekend in Paris, well done! Here’s hoping we will be going to another match next year!!

France v Ireland - Six Nations Paris 2022

Just a short e-mail to thank you and your team for a great weekend. It was just brilliant to be travelling again and as ever ye were superb . Looking forward to many more trips with ye.

Racing 92 v Munster Rugby - Champions Cup

I just want to say a big thank you for the trip to Paris at the weekend. I was nervous about the trip initially as I was travelling on my own. All of the RTI team that travelled were super. I can’t thank you enough for making it a trip to remember for me. Everything was so well organised and everything was done, all that was left to do was eat, drink and see the match.

Racing 92 v Munster Rugby - Champions Cup

The trip surpassed everything I had expected. The organisation, the great staff, the people travelling on it. Generally things start well on trips and fall off but the attention to detail was there until I walked out of the airport home again. It was a terrific experience. I will be booking again!

Alan - Dublin
Six Nations, Wales v Ireland, 2019

Just to let you know that the hotel and tickets in Cardiff were fantastic, and whilst the outcome of the Wales v Ireland match was obviously not what was wanted, we had a great weekend regardless. Many thanks for your and we will be back in touch again for future trips.

Lynne - Corporate Group
Six Nations, Scotland v Ireland, 2019

I just want to say thank you for a fantastic trip to Edinburgh! Everyone had a great weekend. It was very well organised, and the hotel was in a fantastic location. So central and a nice walk to the stadium! Big thanks Mark and Cathal again! Hopefully see you at the France vs Ireland match!

Six Nations, Italy v Ireland, 2019

Just wanted to say thanks to you guys for organising a great weekend. Our hotel was a good three star, close to the metro and we had a really helpful rep, Paul, who had great tips and advice on getting about Rome and how to best use our time. We had a ball and found the trip great value so thanks a mill to all at Rugby Travel Ireland!

Six Nations, Italy v Ireland, 2019

I have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed the weekend in Rome. We had a great time seeing sights and going to the match. Thank you very much and we will travel with Rugby Travel Ireland again.

Six Nations, Scotland v Ireland, 2019

Booked our first trip with Rugby Travel Ireland to the 6 Nations Ireland v Scotland 2019 match in Edinburgh as a Christmas present for my 15yr old rugby loving daughter. All aspects of our trip from initial enquiry right through to our return back to Dublin airport were dealt with efficiently, professionally and with great customer service. Would highly recommend Rugby Travel Ireland and I look forward to our next trip with them!

Six Nations, England v Ireland, 2018

Thank you so much for all your help before the game last weekend. The hotel was superb and the side-view tickets were excellent, great view. Excellent hospitality from your company again. It is our second time travelling with you and we hope to travel to Cardiff next year all going to plan with you too.
Thanks so much for a weekend to remember.

Six Nations, Scotland v Ireland, 2019

Excellent all round. Friendly, efficient, good service, will definitely travel with Rugby Travel Ireland again.

Six Nations, France v Ireland, 2018

Thanks a million Mark. We had a great time, although still feeling the after effects. Your guys were brilliant from start to finish have to say. You can count on seeing us next year for one of your trips.

Nick, New York
Six Nations, Ireland v Scotland, 2018

We had a great trip last weekend to Ireland v Scotland and really enjoyed the efficient and extremely friendly service from all the Rugby Travel Ireland staff.

British & Irish Lions Tour to New Zealand, 2017

A big thank you to Rugby Travel Ireland for everything! You all contributed to make our first Lions Tour very special for Christine and I. We enjoyed every minute.

Six Nations, Paris, 2018

Thank you so much to Rugby Travel Ireland for the best trip to Paris for the Six Nations. It was unreal and a dream come true for me, ye are the best. It was so well organised and we were well looked after. Such great memories to have.

Munster PRO14 South Africa, 2018

What a week! Everything was great from the hotels, to the location and the results! We will travel with you again and look forward to the Rugby World Cup next year in Japan!

Annette, Galway
Munster PRO14 South Africa, 2018

I want to say that it was an excellent trip and ran very smoothly. Cathal was at all times courteous, professional and good humoured. Us seasoned RTI travellers agreed it was probably our best trip.

British & Irish Lions Tour to New Zealand, 2017

We feel so privileged to have met such lovely people and will go home with happy special memories of times made with new friends. Rugby Travel Ireland – it’s been a fabulous tour and we’ve loved every minute. Your hard work is appreciated and we will be recommending your company for future rugby tours.

Dan, Dublin
Six Nations, Paris, 2018

There is a great level of engagement and no sense of being “herded around” as is sometimes the experience. All of my guys really enjoyed it. Thanks again and my doctor says we will all recover soon!

Owen & Ginny
British & Irish Lions Tour to Australia, 2013

The level of organisation was incredibly detailed and made a huge contribution to everyone’s enjoyment. The itinerary was great with flexibility to mix or do your own thing as people wanted.

Summer Tour, South Africa V Ireland, 2016

As tour virgins we weren’t quite sure what to expect, but boy oh boy, what an unbelievable experience all brilliantly organised. Nothing was too much trouble, and Natalie and Brian from SA Rugby Tours were amazing. From the history making 1st Test in Cape Town to final farewells in Joburg airport, the tour was an absolute highlight. We experienced shark-cage diving, helicopter flight around Table Mountain, animal safaris seeing the big 5, “surfing” at the party dinner, wine tasting, superb food and accommodation, but above all the many fellow tourists we met and friends made. Looking forward to seeing you all again when you come to NZ for the Lions tour, and the next Ireland tour. Thank you so much for the wonderful memories.

Summer Tour, South Africa V Ireland, 2016

What an adventure! From our flight getting delayed due to rain at Heathrow!! and how Gordon and Amy had the craic getting everyone through all the security checks to catch the Flight to JoBurg. To a great day out in 2nd Test at Ellis Park followed by Safari, Golf (hitting over Crocs and Hippos) and taking a Elephant for a dander..but mainly for great company and craic. Mad Tony from Wexford to Hand off Cat from Carlow. Final evening after 3rd Test in PE and great group photo with Donal Lenihan and a few shots (drinks ….) to round off a fantastic tour. Thanks to Mark and all the Team for a very memorable tour – Yeah I’m still smiling…

Rugby World Cup, Ireland Quarter Finals 2015

I would like to thank you all for what was a wonderful weekend. You all worked extremely hard to ensure that all arrangements went smoothly and that everyone had a great time in Cardiff. I am impressed and will certainly travel with you again.

John, Huddersfield
RBS 6 Nations, Ireland v England 2015

My guests and I had a great day. The organisation of the day for so many people was excellent, and as an England follower if you have to lose then losing to the Irish in Dublin is always the best place to do it!

Heineken Cup Final, Leinster v Northampton, 2011

Thanks so much for arranging such a day trip in the first place. There were no delays with coaches or flights and the tickets received were of the highest quality. The fact that all of Leinster’s tries were scored in that end of the pitch only made the tickets even better. All your staff were very friendly and helpful. I will look forward to my next trip that will be booked with you.

Ger, Limerick
British and Irish Lions Tour to South Africa, 2009

I would like to take the opportunity to send a big Thank You, to Mark and all the staff for all their hard work and assistance in the planning, coordination and organising of our recent Lions Tour to South Africa. What a fantastic tour, we met some great people. There is no question that you have built a wonderful organisation.

Paul, Dublin
British and Irish Lions Tour to South Africa, 2009

The Lions itinerary was well planned and the quality of the accommodation was superb. We really appreciated how well we were looked after and we thoroughly enjoyed the two-week trip.

Phillip, Dublin
British and Irish Lions Tour to South Africa, 2009

Just a quick note to say thanks for all your efforts in organising the Lions tour party in SA. I can honestly say that I had a great time, the memories of which I will treasure for a long time.

Michelle, Carlow
British and Irish Lions Tour to South Africa, 2009

The Lions tour was a fantastic success for our whole family. The care and attention given to all on tour was exceptional. Any queries that arose were dealt with efficiently and successfully. It was excellent fun at all the matches before, during and after. Each step of the tour was planned meticulously and professionally and ensured that the time was spent enjoying as much as South Africa as possible.
