When does Wimbledon 2024 start?

Wimbledon 2024 will start on Monday, the 1st of July 2024, and will end with the men’s singles final on Sunday, the 14th of July 2024.

How to watch Wimbledon in Ireland in 2024

There are several different ways to watch Wimbledon in Ireland but the best way (in my opinion) is to get access to the BBC’s coverage of the tournament.

The BBC is available on a number of different TV providers including Sky, Eir, Virgin Media, and Vodafone TV, which all include BBC One and BBC Two on their basic TV packages.

However, if you want to stream matches live and on-demand on your tablet, laptop, or PC via the BBC iPlayer, then you will need to use a paid VPN service as the iPlayer is not accessible to people living in the Republic of Ireland.

Which VPN service you use is up to you but I have used Nord VPN in the past and have had no issues accessing the iPlayer.

If you want a 100% free way to stream coverage of Wimbledon 2023 from Ireland, then your best option is to find a good free VPN provider and then access the BBC iPlayer for free.

Other TV Options:

  • Eurosport – Eurosport will have daily replays of matches from 10 pm on Eurosport 2 and live coverage of the women’s singles final on the 13th of July and the men’s singles final on the 14th of July 2024. – More info is on the Eurosport website.
  • Premier Sports – Premier Sports is the official TV partner for the Republic of Ireland, with live coverage of Wimbledon 2024 on Premier Sports 1 & Premier Sports 2.
