2020 Dublin Ireland FAQs

Navy takes on Notre Dame in Dublin Ireland on Saturday, 29 August 2020! Join us in Dublin!

Travel Packages:

1. (Q) Can I purchase game tickets without a travel package?

(A) Yes, however there is no gurantee without securing tickets via a travel package. Individual game tickets will go on sale in early 2020. In 2012 when Notre Dame and Navy last played in Ireland, a limited number of game tickets were put on sale in the U.S. and sold out within one hour. Please note, hotels and airlines will feel the pressure of many Navy and Notre Dame fans traveling to Dublin at approximately the same time. Be sure you can secure hotel space etc before purchasing your tickets. 

2. (Q) I want to explore Ireland/UK etc on my own but don't want to miss out on Navy activities or don't want to do the itineraries being offered, what should I do?

(A) Consider purchasing the 3-day Dublin package offered. This package surrounds the days of the game so that you'll be in the heart of the game festivities. It also guarantees your hotel room and game ticket while providing you with free time before and/or after the game to explore on your own. If you want a full itinerary, don't forget, you can contact Anthony Travel and create a custom package. 

3. (Q) When will fights be made available?

(A) Commercial flights generally do not become available to the public until approximately 11 month prior to departure. Anthony Travel has partnered with Aer Lingus, Ireland's national flag airline carrier, and potentially other carriers to provide exclusive flight options from key cities prior to them going on sale to the public. 

4. (Q) Will midshipmen attend the game?

(A)  The Commandant's staff is reviewing how many and which midshipmen may be permitted to travel to the game. We will share information as it becomes available. Please check with your midshipman regarding potential travel as they will start to receive information Fall 2019.  

5. (Q) Whate events are planned before the game?

(A) Our team is working with the Dublin-based team on several events, including an exclusive event for those who purchase a travel package as well as a pre-game tailgate. Once details are confirmed, information and registration will be added to this document as well as to the event page on this site ( We hope to see you there!
