Group trip in 2012

My husband coaches a boys' soccer (football) team, and we're planning a team trip for June or July of 2012. The trip will be mainly sightseeing, but the boys would like to play a couple of "friendlies" while in Ireland. Any suggestions as to itinerary would be appreciated. I'd like to include Bere Island.

Thank you for any help.

Just back from Beara Pen this weekend and it is definitely a must see when you are in West Cork.

regarding the friendly football (soccer) matches. The best thing to do here is google 'soccer clubs' in the areas you will be visiting. Most soccer clubs will have some kind of presence on the web which will at least give you some contact names. If you google 'football' you will end up also finding the many GAA football clubs and this is an entirely different sport to soccer.

There is a company in Cork who have a group of hotels throughout the country and they do sports groups - nice and reasonable, I used them for our karate club, we were playing in dublin, galway and kerry and got really good prices for the hotels, way cheaper than B&B's and they had a a sister company who did the coaching for us, in case you are not bringing your own. Im sure they will have the numbers of soccer clubs around where you want to go. www.irelandschoice.com, their number is on their web site. there is a girl there called mairead, she worked wonders for us, dont know is she still works there but give them a go.

E-mail Eddie Doyle at the following e-mail:


He is the secretary of the Cork Schoolboys League, which is mainly Cork City. There's hundreds of clubs and he'd be glad to help you out.
