Big screens, big drinks, big action: Wolfhound (Itaewon)

The bar synonymous with all things Irish, fans won’t have had the chance to draw breath with the ending of the GAA hurling and football championships before the rugby kicks in. The bar’s upstairs section offers six screens for a view from wherever you’re seated, so no matter how packed it gets, you’ll still be able to see a Johnny Sexton penalty or a Paul O’Connell leap. With full access to channels from the British Isles and Ireland, expect plenty of fans to be heading there as Ireland kick off its tournament against Canada on the first Saturday. From there, the Irish move to a Sunday night slot with games being played just after midnight Korean time. With six screens and the ability to show different sports on the recently renovated second floor, the bar is ready to flow seamlessly from live GAA matches to hosting Barclays Premier League soccer and the very best that the Rugby World Cup has to offer. With regular discounts on cider and other promotions, there promises to be plenty of opportunities for renditions of “Ireland’s Call” during the tournament.

Be there for:

Ireland vs. Canada (Saturday, Sept. 19 at 10.30pm)

Ireland vs. Romania (Monday, Sept. 28 at 12.45am)

Ireland vs. Italy (Monday, Oct. 5 at 12.45am)

Ireland vs. France (Monday, Oct. 12 at 12.45am)
