IRELAND are set to take on Scotland on Sunday morning as the Rugby World Cup kicks off in Japan.

With the game taking place at 8.45am Irish time, punters may be wondering what pubs will be open that early in the morning.

Despite alcohol serving times starting at 12.30pm on a Sunday, a number of pubs across Dublin and the rest of the country will open their doors for a breakfast viewing of the match.
