How to get to the city 

  

Air:         Belfast has two airports:

Belfast City airport (also known as The George Best City Airport) is a couple of miles to the east of the city centre.

                Airlink buses take 15-20 minutes to get to the city centre.

                028 90939093

                www.belfastcityairport.com

                Belfast International Airport is 18 miles to the north-west of the city centre.

                An airbus goes to the Europa Bus-centre twice an hour.

                028 94484848

By Sea   The Port of Belfast is located in the city centre, with daily services to Cairnryan on the west coast of Scotland (2-3 hours),and Birkenhead, near Liverpool (6-8 hours)

Services are provided by Stena Line

 

By Road                Belfast sits on the East Coast sandwiched between Lough Neagh to the west and the Irish Sea in the east.

                                The M1 motorway runs east/west into the south of the capital while the M2                                      motorway takes traffic from near Antrim northeast of Belfast into the northern                                      edge of the city.

By Rail                   There are two main train stations: Great Victoria Street station, next to the Europa centre,          and Central Station, east of the city centre.

                                All trains that cross the border arrive and depart from Central Station.

From Central Station, turn right onto East Bridge Street. Turn right at the main junction on to Ravenhill Road. After about half a mile turn right onto Ardenlee Avenue.

                                Turn right onto Shelbourne Road. Turn right at the end of Shelbourne onto Onslow                         Parade and Ravenhill is located at the top of the road on the right hand corner.

               

Parking                 The area around Mount Merrion becomes a sea of parking tickets on match days,                            so do not take your car unless absolutely necessary.

There is a park-and-ride facility in operation on match days in Ormeau Park on the Ormeau Embankment.

Otherwise the best parking is on the Montgomery Road, Alanbrooke Road and Ladas Drive.

                                There are numerous car parks on Great Victoria Street, Clarence Street West,                                    Bankmore Street and Hope Street.

               

How to reach the ground             If you must drive, head out of the city centre on the Albertridge Road and when you reach the Woodstock Link take the second road on the right-Woodstock Road.

Travel approx 2 miles and turn right onto Onslow Parade just before you approach the roundabout.

                Ravenhill is located at the top of Onslow Parade on the left hand side.

               

Ravenhilll Park is situated in the south-east of Belfast on the east side of the River Lagan, just off the A24 Ravenhill Road.

The No 33 bus service regularly operates between Chichester Street and the Cregagh Road roundabout, which is two minutes walk from the ground.

Should you want to walk it, it would take you around half an hour from Great Victoria Street.

Just to clarify at the outset, I am talking about rugby union’s particular problems with the gap between the Premiership and the Championship, though I am aware of the parallels with the round-ball game.

Bath v Brive – The Rematch (Tue, 04 Apr 2017)

France was the frontier town, and nowhere was more dangerous or more gilded than Brive, smack in the middle of the Limousin. This stand-alone town … Continue reading Bath v Brive – The Rematch
