NOW: Have a craic with Irish legends when Notre Dame battles Navy in Ireland

ST. JOSEPH COUNTY, Ind. - Former Notre Dame running back Ryan Grant partnered with Executive Global Travel to create a one-of-a-kind travel package when Notre Dame faces Navy in Ireland next season.

From Belfast to Dublin, travelers will have seven nights of 4- and 5-star accommodations, three rounds of seaside golf, and to share the entire experience with Irish legends like Reggie Brooks, Tony Rice, Chris Zorich, Irv Smith, Ryan Harris, Mike Golic, and many more.

"The new regime that's in right now with Coach Freeman and everything, I think he's trying to enhance and recreate a culture around that brotherhood," said Ryan Grant. "And I think that's what we've kind of been missing for a long time. So to have multi generations traveling together, that can have common stories and have new stories based upon the differences in the generations. I think it helps it just, it unites us a little more, enhances the brotherhood." 

Former players are not just playing golf with fans, they're riding the same bus, staying in the same hotels, and going out to restaurants and excursions.

On this trip, they're not just Irish legends but tourists just like the fans.

"They're going to be seeing the Game of Thrones, the Titanic, to name some of the attractions and meet the Lord Mayor of Belfast, and the Lord Mayor of Derry, and we're going to wear Derry Girls that's on Netflix was filmed as well," said Director of Global Tours JP Cone. "So they really get to meet the people of the countries that they're going to and enjoy themselves. While raise money for a good cause."

A portion of every trip purchased is being donated to the Holtz's Heroes Foundation to help Notre Dame students in need.

Of course, the trip also includes tickets to Notre Dame vs. Navy at Aviva Stadium, as well as VIP hospitality, and a pregame tailgate party in Dublin.

"We're going to go over there, have some fun, play some golf, drink some pints and watch the Irish beat the Midshipmen," said former Notre Dame tight end Anthony Fasano.
