Will one of the Six Nations teams be the new World Champion? In the 2020 Guinness Six Nations England will host Wales and Ireland and will be hoping that the home advantage and the Twickenham ‘roar’ will boost their performance.
The drama and spectacle of a Guinness Six Nations match is unique and PURE Co can help you make the most of the occasion with an away trip to one of the stunning host cities.

Dublin’s streets come alive on Rugby days and you will be able to drink in the atmosphere as well as a glass or two of the ‘Irish Champagne’.
