                Eating and Drinking        The regular beer tents are where most of the convivial atmosphere and beer resides.

                There are also several burger and chip stalls in and outside the ground.

The bars stay open for about an hour after the final whistle.

The area around the ground is quite residential and there is not much action near the Stadium surrounding Ravenhill.

Those on the Ormeau Road are within a decent walk. Rugby-friendly places here include the Errigle and the Pavilion.

                The Botanic Inn, at 23-27 Malone Road, not only has a big screen and a big  atmosphere, but it often lays on buses to and from the ground.

 

Accommodation             

Madisons (028 90509808) www.madison.hotel.com, on Botanic Avenue has its own cafe               and nightclub.

                There are two decent guesthouses within a five-minute walk from the ground:

                Both The Maranatha Guest House (028 90460200; www.maranatha-guesthouse.com)    and the Ravenhill Guest House (028 90207444; eee.ravenhillguesthouse.com) are on the Ravenhill Road.

The Roseleigh House (028 90644414, www.roseleighhouse.co.uk) is just around                the corner from the Ravenhill.

The Europa Hotel is famed for being the most bombed hotel in Europe during Ulster’s dark days

                Where to Drink and Eat in Belfast

                At the Duke of York (7-11 Commercial Street) knock back your Bushmills whiskey beneath antique mirrors and Titanic memorabilia ( where Titanic workers constructed the bar in exchange for shots).

For something edgier, head to Love & Death (10a Anne Street) and choose from over 85 cocktails from the comic-inspired menu.

For traditional pub grub and real ales, pitch up at the Crown Liquor Saloon(46 Great Victoria Street) .

Northern Ireland’s excellent seafood is best sampled at Mourne’s Seafood Bar (mourneseafood.com) or James Street South Bar & Grill (jamestreetsouth.co.uk)

Rugby’s Summer becomes the new Winter (Tue, 06 Nov 2018)
Theresa May would have felt right at home at Twickenham. Even a workable Brexit deal sometimes feels more achievable than locating the solution to rugby union’s unfeasibly tight fixture calendar. For a quarter of a century, if not longer, the sport has been trying to squeeze a globally-accepted quart into a disputed pint pot and … Continue reading Rugby’s Summer becomes the new Winter

The Autumn Window is not entirely open (Tue, 23 Oct 2018)
Rugby’s autumn internationals will be ready to rumble in a couple of weeks. England have a huge game against South Africa at Twickenham, Wales meet Scotland in Cardiff and Ireland face Italy in Chicago. These are big occasions with significant revenues. It is strange, then, that no one in charge of selling tickets, hospitality packages … Continue reading The Autumn Window is not entirely open

Is it so bad if Rugby turns into Football? (Tue, 09 Oct 2018)
The new rugby season is a month old, but this is my first blog of the season, so let’s ride my hobby-horse of how rugby is coming to resemble football. It is because the cry, so often last season, was that rugby was becoming football. Coaches being sacked, the developing transfer market, players talking back … Continue reading Is it so bad if Rugby turns into Football?

Mallinder’s Northampton downfall has parallels with Wenger at Arsenal (Tue, 29 May 2018)
Longevity has come up short. The announcement that Arsène Wenger would leave Arsenal meant this season was the last for the longest-serving club heads in football and rugby’s premierships. Similar to Wenger at Arsenal, Jim Mallinder at Northampton had gone from managing the champions to missing out on a place in the top four for … Continue reading Mallinder’s Northampton downfall has parallels with Wenger at Arsenal

Does Club Rugby need to be Marketed better? (Tue, 01 May 2018)
Is rugby popular, or not very popular at all? The answer is, perhaps weirdly, both. When it comes to international rugby, cup finals, or some annual “special” games, it attracts big numbers. 55,000 fans went to Murrayfield to see Saracens beat Clermont in 2017, 74,000 watched Wales beat Scotland, 82,000 watched England beat Wales and … Continue reading Does Club Rugby need to be Marketed better?
