Carr Golf Announces Travel Packages for 2020 Aer Lingus College Football Classic

Notre Dame vs. Navy Game to be Played in Dublin’s Aviva Stadium

Carr Golf – Ireland, England and Scotland’s premier provider of unforgettable golf experiences – announces the availability of exceptional custom-built itineraries for the 2020 Aer Lingus College Football Classic in Dublin.

Exciting NCAA college football will return to the Emerald Isle next year on Aug. 29 in a highly anticipated matchup between the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and U.S. Naval Academy Midshipmen. As the “Official Golf Travel Provider” for this unique event, Carr Golf’s “one-of-a-kind” itineraries combine the football clash at Aviva Stadium with exclusive tee times and accommodations in the most sought-after venues and hotels in Ireland and Scotland.

Notre Dame and Navy previously travelled to Ireland in 1996 and 2012

Announced by Ireland’s Prime Minister Leo Varadkar, the upcoming game is part of a five-game “American Football Series” that will bring an estimated $250 million dollars to the country. Aviva Stadium is home to the Irish Rugby Football Union and Republic of Ireland’s national football team.

This will mark the third meeting between Notre Dame and U.S. Naval Academy in Ireland. They will compete for the Keough-Naughton Trophy, named for Donald Koeugh, the first inductee into the Irish American Hall of Fame, and Martin Naughton, who trailblazed Irish studies programs in the U.S.

“Two storied U.S. college football programs going head-to-head will make for an incredibly exciting and fun week in Dublin,” says Marty Carr, executive chairman of Carr Golf.” We are thrilled to showcase the unbelievable golf, accommodations and hospitality here in Ireland as we celebrate the Fighting Irish returning to their roots to take on the U.S. Naval Academy.”
