Top Seven Reasons to Travel on the Official BC Ireland Tour

With a number of travel options available for the Aer Lingus College Football Classic in Dublin, only the Official BC Ireland Tour offers fans the full Ireland experience. Join fellow Eagles on the official tour and ensure yourself the trip of a lifetime. Here’s why:

1. Exclusive Game Tickets


No one wants to travel thousands of miles for a football game only to sit in the far corner of the upper deck. Fans traveling on the Official BC Ireland Tour are guaranteed the best seats in the house to cheer on the Eagles. Keep in mind, Aviva Stadium was not constructed with American football in mind and sightlines are very different from stadiums in the U.S. That’s why we scouted out the best viewing areas in the park and secured those seats just for you. All tickets will be in the official Boston College seating sections.

2. Private Boston College Welcome Gathering at the Guinness Storehouse


No trip to Dublin is complete without a stop at the famed Guinness Storehouse – and it will be the place for Eagle fans to be in Dublin on Friday night. Fans traveling on the Official BC Ireland Tour will have exclusive access to the entire facility for a night you won’t soon forget.

Eagle fans will be treated to a buffet dinner and beverages. You’ll have a chance to explore every level of the world-renowned facility with different entertainment on all six floors, including the Gravity Bar featuring some of the very best views of Dublin. This special evening will marry the great Boston College spirit with wonderful Irish hospitality.

Enjoy the camaraderie, school spirit and priority access to exclusive Boston College events. Traveling on the Official BC Ireland Tour is the best way to show Georgia Tech, Aviva Stadium and all of Dublin that together, We Are BC!

5. Transportation to All Package Events

No need to stress about renting a vehicle or getting lost or worrying about which side of the road you’re supposed to drive on. The Official BC Ireland Tour provides transportation – and the most convenient parking and access – to all official package events, including the game, official pre-game activities and the exclusive Boston College welcome gathering at the Guinness Storehouse.

6. Know Your Hotels

Often, tour providers simply mention accommodations with a hotel rating, but fail to denote an actual hotel name until closer to the event. With the Official BC Ireland Tour, hotel names and descriptions are provided upfront so there are no surprises later. Rest assured, we’ve selected the very best hotels Ireland has to offer in terms of location and amenities.
