2018 GUINNESS Series Fixtures Confirmed

Ireland will play Argentina, New Zealand and the USA at the Aviva Stadium this coming November in the 2018 GUINNESS Series.

First up, Argentina return to Dublin twelve months after a thrilling match in front of a sold-out Aviva Stadium which saw Ireland win 28-19.

The second game of the 2018 GUINNESS Series marks the return of the All Blacks. It is two years since New Zealand last played at the Aviva Stadium where they exacted revenge for Ireland’s historic win in Chicago just a few weeks before.
