Coronavirus - Covid-19 Pandemic

Firstly and most importantly, we hope you are and your family are all safe and well and we wish you all the best over these difficult times.

In view of the well documented implications of the unprecedented worldwide Coronavirus pandemic, we want to reassure you that that the safety and well-being of all of our touring groups is very important to us and that we are closely monitoring advice from the Government, Foreign & Commonwealth Office and ABTA.

We have been dealing with the repatriation of clients stuck in Spain and are supporting our staff who are in self isolation.

Our office is now in full lockdown and we have very limited email access but those who are able to work are working around the clock to ensure that we can assist our customers with the most urgent needs and our goal is to ensure that anyone due to travel in the next seven days has been updated on their tour and given a list of options available to them, we will not however have the resources to enter into conversations over these options at this stage.

We will continue to contact tour organisers whose travel plans have been effected.

Best wishes at what is a difficult time for us all and thanks for your understanding,

The Burleigh Travel Team

Senior Rugby Tour to Cork

During a senior rugby tour to Ireland the club were without doubt able to embrace the Irish heritage and culture and enjoy the friendly welcome and hospitality of the locals and the world-renowned Irish Craic present in popular nightlife areas such as Patrick Street. This, alongside the stunning scenery and coastline and a host of activities available in the seaside City of Cork, make it an ideal rugby tour destination for rugby teams travelling from the UK.

During their 3 night stay, the tourists enjoyed two rugby fixtures against local teams; Dolphin RFC and Ballincollig RFC - privy to superb hosts, competitive rugby and a true experience of Irish club rugby.
