The Rugby Groud Guide

Tickets, Eating & Drinking

Tickets:

Basically, as is their right, the IRFU give their tickets for home internationals away to the rugby clubs, debenture holders, schools and other sponsors in Ireland. Away fans get an allocation but they too go to their respective rugby clubs, etc.

There are numerous other alternatives when it comes to getting a ticket. Ticket websites are worth trying.

Touts are usually found on the roads around the stadium, although Lansdowne Road itself just by the gates is usually the best place to go. Fans who arrive the night before should consider asking in the pubs around Grafton Street, Lower Baggot Street, and early in the evening in Temple Bar.

Tickets for non-6 Nations are usually easier to come by through the IRFU, though the IRFU are prone to packaging tickets. In November 2010 it tried to sell tickets for the November tests as a package for all four matches. This backfired spectacularly when only 35,515 turned out for the South Africa game, and the IRFU had to back away from this plan amid heavy criticism.
