The Elite Cup


Kilkenny College

Kilkenny College is the largest coeducational boarding school in Ireland and can accommodate over 400 students at a time. Those who wish to have on-site accommodation will be accommodated in one of the boarding blocks. Players can expect to share dorms with 3-4 team members. Coaches and minders will be accommodated in ensuite single rooms where available. Only female members of the coaching team will be accommodated with the team players. It is each team’s responsibility to leave the accommodation as they found it. It is the coaches/minders responsibility to ensure players go to bed at the appropriate times and not to disturb or prevent any other teams from getting the required rest. No music is allowed past 10pm.

Costs are €TBA per person per person including breakfast and dinner, based on a two-night stay. Lunches are served at the school dining hall and are included in the tournament fee. Bed linens are provided, but teams must provide their own towels.
