                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)

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.

England’s failure. Blame it on…. (Tue, 27 Mar 2018)
After England’s failure at the Six Nations, finishing only above Italy, (at least no- one has pretended that it was anything but a failure) the knives have all too predictably been going in all directions. Quite a few have landed in Eddie Jones’ back, but many commentators have looked at the Irish and asked what … Continue reading England’s failure. Blame it on….

Football and Rugby crowds (Tue, 06 Feb 2018)
  Why do you think a rugby crowd is so different from a football crowd? Even if it isn’t that different in demographics and profile, the spectator experience certainly is.   Basically, football fans are not trusted not to monster each other. So we’re all on CCTV in and around the ground, and the whole … Continue reading Football and Rugby crowds
