The packages can be booked now and deposit is refundable, should there be any Covid-19 restrictions near the time of travel, writes Clodagh Dooley
Before the coronavirus outbreak happened in Ireland, I was lucky enough to get to attend Ireland’s first Guinness Six Nations match of 2020, against Scotland in the Aviva. I was invited on behalf of the ITAA (Irish Travel Agents Association), alongside other travel journalists. Although I once worked behind a bar during Six Nations’ matches in the Principality Stadium (then known as Millenium Stadium) when I studied in Cardiff a few years ago, Ireland V Scotland was my first rugby match to actually watch live in a stadium. So I was very grateful to have experienced that before the nation went into lockdown and the 2020 Championship was no more.
I would definitely attend another match and I’ve just heard that sports travel specialists, Killester Travel, have launched their Six Nations 2021 packages. The packages are available for each of Ireland’s away fixtures to Cardiff, Edinburgh, and Rome, and you can secure your place today for a deposit of just €200pp.
The structure of next year’s rugby season is, of course, a hot topic right now and Killester Travel will adjust to any changes that arise. With the Covid-19 situation in mind, deposits are refundable if supporter restrictions prevent travellers from attending the match.
The packages are:
Feb 7th, 2021 – Wales V Ireland, Principality Stadium, Cardiff
- Same day return from €350 plus tax

Sounds like it’s time to get planning!
