Glasgow v Leinster – Saturday, 21st October, KO: 1.00pm
Given the early afternoon kickoff time, supporters can either do an overnight or same day option for this game. Both Ryanair and Aer Lingus fly to Glasgow International. For those wanting to come home after the game, you’ll need to book the last flight home with Ryanair on Saturday evening.
At the time of writing, same day options with Ryanair were from €55pp return all in.
From the airport, frequent buses run to the city centre and from there are a number of options for getting to Scostoun.
Glasgow has a number of options, we suggest either the Hilton or IBIS but further options can be found here.
Exeter v Leinster – Sunday, 10th December, KO: 5.30pm
Bristol airport is located an hour away from Exeter and has a number of flights daily from Dublin with both Ryanair and Aer Lingus. Flybe does fly to Exeter but flights are less frequent.
The late kick off means supporters traveling independently will need to stay over on the Sunday night.
At the time of writing the Premier Inn – Exeter City Centre had non refundable rooms on the Sunday night for £29.50 Other options can be found here
Airport transfers and possible OLSC services
From Bristol airport you could take a rental car for the one hour journey, alternatively you could check out the bus or train (via Bristol Temple Meads).
Subject to demand, the OLSC may as it has done on previous occasions run buses for certain flights. If you would be interested in such a service please send you name and party size to firstname.lastname@example.org – we aim to make a decision by the middle of September.
Supporters are strongly encouraged to purchase from our away allocation, details will be sent from the ticket office in due course. We will recommend area(s) of where to buy where we can so that the blue is together.
