The facilities that Rugby Academy Ireland have are fantastic! From the team room for talks and video sessions which our son found very informative and useful for his personal development as a rugby player to the pitch based drills which were also good. The gym facilities are excellent too!

Ciaran ManganParent, TY Player

The facilities are excellent! Pitches, video analysis, coaches, dietitian advice and gym facilities are all on site and in line with top professional standards. The food too was excellent and the nutritional advise was tailored to each individuals needs and goals. Off the pitch we had some great craic also with lots of pursuits laid on for our entertainment.
