The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will among other things visit the Croke Park for a sports festival to learn about the history of the GAA and the significance of GAA to Irish life.

The couple will also attend a summer garden party in the British Ambassador’s residence – located in Ballsbridge – where they will meet people from across Ireland’s arts, sports, military and social enterprise sectors.

Also, they will have a moment at the Famine Memorial before visiting EPIC, the Irish Emigration Museum, telling the story of the 10 million Irish people who have emigrated across the world.

Of course, a trip to Dublin wouldn’t be complete without visiting Trinity College and The Book of Kells. So, that’s exactly what Meghan and Harry are going to do. Lucky Trinity students!

Unfortunately, the exact times of their visits haven’t been revealed, so if you’re really dedicated on seeing them you should probably not lose an eye on social media. The last thing left to say is; we wish you good luck in the search for the Duke and Duchess!
