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

Rugby must continue living on the brink if it is to move forward (Wed, 10 Jan 2018)
  Professional rugby union is operating on the brink, with spiralling player wages leading to smaller squads and everyone from World Rugby to Ross Moriarty being accused of greed as they look to maximise income.

Does Test Rugby need stricter rules? (Tue, 14 Nov 2017)
