ONE TO ONE
LIVE. LOVE. PLAY
We offer cutting-edge rugby coaching and competition to players of all abilities, ages, genders and nationalities.
Whether your ambition is to excel as a professional or simply fill a holiday with friendship and fun, we have the unique rugby experience for you.
Culture & Heritage
We provide cutting-edge coaching to help players boost both their performance and their understanding of the game of rugby. For young people from the age of 12 up, we organise these highly social camps to coincide with school holidays (we have Minis Camps for kids from 4 – 11 years). Our biggest camp runs over the Summer, when we invite international participants to join our IRI adventure!
For international players, our camps provide the perfect environment to experience the best of Irish rugby, improve English and make lasting friendships. We make sure to support our international members by offering extra English classes, as well as providing hosting with local families who love rugby as much as we do. Or if you value your independence, we of course arrange for that too!
Interested in hosting our international players over the Summer?
We’re always looking for sporty families all over Ireland to join our Host Team. We value your generosity dearly, and we make sure you’re compensated in kind.
We offer bespoke team tours and rugby adventures, all year round. Whether you need an intensive, highly competitive travelling tourney to optimise your preseason, or if you’re a corporate client looking for an activity-fuelled weekend, we will be delighted to tailor our resources to match your needs.
ONE TO ONE
If you’re looking for that extra boost, that extra time and mentorship from experienced professionals, look no further. Maybe you’re seeking deep insights for your specialist role, or looking to improve your all-round game and game knowledge… whatever it is you require, we would love to help you.

A NOTE FROM THE FOUNDERS
We created the IRI for you, to build dreams and to achieve them. We wanted to turn our experience, passion and expertise into genuine value for people, both in the longterm and in every moment. We want to make better players and better people. That’s why we live, love and play rugby, the Irish way.
– Rossa and Rob.
Quick mail to let you know that the boys came back very pleased from their time in Ireland. Pierre was ecstatic about the whole camp and he is looking forward to next year. Thanks again for everything.
I just wanted to thank you for the summer camp Augustin was a bit shy at the beginning, specially because of his english – not fluent at all. It was a bit hard to understand at the beginning, and then he learned to listen, and then to speak a little. He really enjoyed playing Rugby with other internationals young boys. And he enjoyed being welcomed by his host too.
Thank you for all.
Thank you both of you.
And maybe see you next year for him!
I am writing to you to let know how please I am with the camp and the positive reaction George has came back to us after the camp, great to see some imporvements in his rugby and his English.
I am delighted with the camp and would like to reserve a spot for next year.
For the second year sending my three boys to the Irish Rugby Institute I again am delighted with how they happy they are about the experience. There rugby and English have come on leaps and bounds again! Great to have the opportunity for them to make some great connections and really enjoy themselves with a truly lovely host family.
Thank you for everything.
would like to thank you for everything. The two boys have come back from the camp very happy and are already looking to go back next year to stay with the same host family. Everyone at the camp was lovely and the experience has been excellent for them.
We’re proud to unveil our first ever Irish Rugby Institute TEAM – competing in the RugbySpy #Ibiza10s next weekend.
