OLSC Heineken Champions Cup Travel Information
August 17, 2018 12:37 pm OLSC
The fixture details for all six rounds of the Heineken Champions Cup have been confirmed today by EPCR.
While many supporters will have travelled for games against these teams before, the OLSC appreciates that some may not so we have put together this brief guide.
In all cases, Leinster Rugby will be taking an official away allocation. We know it is tempting to purchase directly from the away team, however, to ensure that the blue is together we suggest waiting for the email from the ticket office that will have all the details.
Toulouse – Sunday, 21st October, (KO 4.15pm local)
Flights: Friday-Sunday flights operate from Dublin with Aer Lingus.
From the airport: Take the new tram (line T2) to the city centre.
Accommodation: There shouldn’t be an issue here, there are a number of hotels in the city centre (IBIS Toulouse City Centre and IBIS Gare Matabiau Hotel are all good choices). For others see www.accorhotels.com.
Another option is to fly to nearby Carcassonne (95kms). In October, you are looking at Saturday-Tuesday with Ryanair. You can get to Toulouse from there by a short train.
Bath – Saturday, 8th December (KO 3.15pm)
Flights: Fly direct with Aer Lingus and Ryanair. Unfortunately, given the kick off time, same day flights are not an option.
From the airport: Bristol is a short drive away, if using the train you’ll need to take the Airport Flyer bus to Bristol Temple Meads.
Accommodation: Hotel prices increased as soon as the competition weekends were announced. At the time of writing your best option is probably nearby Bristol. It’s just a 30-minute train ride away and on Saturday nights the last trains run at 11.10pm. Beside the train station is a Holiday Inn and IBIS Hotel (and more in the city centre itself).
Wasps – Sunday, 20th January (KO 3.15pm)
Flights: Fly to Birmingham with either Aer Lingus or Ryanair.
From the airport: Get a train from the airport station to Coventry, these are frequent and take approximately 20 minutes each way.
Accommodation: There’s the Doubletree by Hilton at the ground, other options in Coventry include the Premier Inn and Travelodge.
Joe Walsh Tours will have charter options for some/all of these away games. See all the details and book here.
