Hosts Ireland and their visitors England are the only two unbeaten teams left in this year’s Championship after opening weekend wins over Wales and Scotland respectively.
“We’re all very much looking forward to it,” says Youngs, who starts at hooker in the Aviva Stadium today. “It’s the games you want to play in.
“Ireland away is something very special I think we’re all very excited about it and its going to be one hell of an occasion on Sunday.
“They’re a tough place to go and play but it’s something that I think this team has got to go through. Playing out in South Africa and stuff has sort of built us towards this now and we’re very much looking forward to it.
“I am loving playing these games, it’s going to be a massive occasion on and I’m so pleased to be a part of it."
