sporting events in June?

Meeting some old guy friends in Dublin next June for a short "mancation" and was looking for things to do.

One idea is whether there are any sporting events that usually take place in June (rugby, Gaelic football, etc). Someone already mentioned the greyhound races which could be fun.

Appreciate any suggestions.

cheers

What are your exact dates or have you booked yet??

The rugby season ends at the end of May but there might be some soccer, Gaelic Football and Hurling options.

The Irish soccer team has 2 games in Dublin in June 2015.

7th June 2015. Ireland v England at Aviva Stadium Dublin. This is a friendly match but will be quite intense as this is only the 2nd time Ireland have played England in 20 years and the 1st time England have played in Dublin since 1995 (that match was abandoned due to an awful riot perpetrated by English fans)

13th June 2015. Ireland v Scotland at Aviva Stadium Dublin. This is a qualifying match for the European Championship in 2016 and will most likely have a lot on the line, so it would be a good match to go to.

There will most likely be Gaelic Football and Hurling options but the schedule for then will not be available for a few months yet. You should check back here towards the end of the year for an update

Thanks for the reply. Most likely we arrive Sun or Mon the week of 6/14 for a few days.

Would have loved to see the Eng/Ire match but not to be. Will definitely look for the Gaelic Football and Hurling options.

If you arrive on a Monday you won't have options for hurling or football, as these are played at weekends. You mentioned greyhound racing in your original post and that is an option every day between the 2 tracks in Dublin

If you haven't booked yet and are keen for the soccer maybe try arriving on the 13th and you can go to the Ireland v Scotland match, then there is also a chance of a Gaelic match being on the weekend too
