We have had an incredible year since we opened our doors and it's all thanks to you!

Whether you visited with family, friends, or colleagues for a tour, to meet Santa, attend an event, or join us for a reception; whether you purchased a print, ball, or hoodie from our shop; enjoyed lunch, tea, or treats in our café; followed us on social media, snapped a photo of our flags, or simply thought about stopping by soon — we appreciate it!

Thank you for making our journey so far so memorable!

This weekend, if you do the tour, bring the kids to take part in our treasure hunt, watch the opera singers on our balcony from the street outside or call in for a photo with the Six Nations trophy - we'll be here and we'll be celebrating!


Treasure Hunt at the Home of Legends


With their book of questions and clues, visiting kids will be immersed in fascinating rugby facts and stats as they move through the Experience. All go home with an exclusive International Rugby Experience goodie bag, and will also be entered into a draw to win 4 tickets to the sold out, Munster V All Blacks XV game in Thomond Park this November.


At lunchtime on Saturday we welcome the Limerick Opera Festival. Singers will delight visitors and passersby with a selection of well known operatic arias performed from the 2nd floor balcony overlooking O'Connell Street. 


Sunday’s Treasure seekers will also get a photo op finish with the Six Nation's Trophy where it will be on display in celebration of Ireland's recent back to back win.


We will have a bird's eye view of the finish line of the GLR from our Legends Gallery and look forward to congratulating all participants as they pass our doors. Stop by for a Legends photo and complimentary IRE cooling towel.

The International Rugby Experience is open from 9.30am – 6pm (last tour at 4.30pm) across the Bank Holiday Weekend. Pre-bookings are available online at Tickets - International Rugby Experience with prices starting from just €12.50.
