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.
