“This is by far the best way to see a ND game. There was a great spread and games prior to leaving Chicago. There was a broad open bar on the way to ND. The tailgate was decent food and a ton of fun. It is so easy and convenient. I highly recommend it.”

“Everything from booking, brunch at Punchbowl Social, bus ride, drinks, tailgate and to the midnight snack was fabulous. All employees were so very nice and caring. This is well worth the money.”

“​​The Irish Express team puts on a great event. To a person, they were all very customer focused and friendly. There was a huge group for the UNC game and they handled the logistics well from what I could see. Great atmosphere. Thanks.”
