Eating and Drinking        There are a number of stalls selling food in the RDS but even the club's own website admits these can be expensive. It does recommend Eddie Rockets and the Bagel Factory.

There are a number of bars inside the ground, although these do not provide a great deal of protection from the elements. Therefore, most fans tend to drink in one of the nearby pubs prior to kick-off.

 

www.leinsterfans.com is an excellent guide to the area.

               

Where to Eat and Drink

Leinster supporters meet at various establishments close to the RDS, the two near the Stadium, themost popular being the Horse Show House, which is located opposite the RDS on Merrion Road, and Kielys of Donnybrook , on Main Street, Donnybrook.Kielys is about a 10-minute walk from the RDS, next door to the Donnybrook Stadium.

He was at it again in a recent column. He was writing about players’ attempts to get others booked, and predictably … Continue reading Rugby needs to learn the right lessons from Football
