In June 2014, Ireland played a two-test series against Argentina.[1] This was Ireland's first test series against Argentina since 2007, in which Argentina won that series 2-0. However, Ireland did go into this series on the back of a Six Nations Championship victory, and three consecutive win over Argentina. Including a record winning margin of 22, the last time these two teams faced each other.[2] The tour is part of the third year on the global rugby calendar established by the International Rugby Board, which runs through to 2019.

Ireland won the series 2-0, the first time they had won a test series in Argentina, and won the Admiral Brown Cup for the second time.[3][4]
