Professional Football in April

We are going to be in Dublin April 12 and 13 and back on April 18 and 19th. We would love to go to a Professional Football match. Is there a club in Dublin or surrounding areas that will be playing at this time?

Teams in Ireland are mostly semi-professional, for top level soccer you should go elsewhere in Europe.

fixtures here (perhaps not available yet)

There will certainly be games on at this time as the league changed to a summer set up some years back.It now runs March to October.Several teams based in Dublin, St Pats, Bohemians, Shamrock Rovers, etc.Most common matchday is Friday nights though come Monday nights too.

I wonder how familiar you are with League of Ireland soccer? Its not like the English Premier league size, stadium or crowd wise.In comparison its tiny in fact.Its a much 'rawer' experience.

Any other questions, shoot!

You could always take in a real game - Gaelic Football or better still, Hurling!

Oh my god, I love it! I love it! Hang on until I make some popcorn! :)

The League of Ireland will start on the 7th of March in 2014. Fixtures should be out by the end of December. If you go to the right game the atmosphere can be electric. Go to the wrong game and it's a bit like left over brussel sprouts after Christmas dinner. I love it though!
