Ospreys v Leinster, 27 February

Postby TheBear » February 9th, 2015, 9:26 pm

Anyone going to this match? I'm going with four other lovely lasses. Not sure if there's a Leinster allocation for Liberty Stadium, or if it's a case of buying them via the Ospreys' site.

Any advice welcome, including suggestions for sight-seeing over the weekend. :)

what you after?

wind street is in Swansea city centre and has the all night clubs and usual chain bars eg yates,walkabout,. There's an irish bar (jack murphys) and a live music venue (vault) which are both excellent.

If you want some nice places to eat, madeira on the Kingsway, la prallia in sa1 and La Braseria in wind street are all good.

The town centre offers the usual things but the seaside village mumbles is only a 15 minute taxi ride away and is certainly worth a visit.

ps make sure you have a joe's ice cream the best in the world :D

Will be going over again.

Buy your tickets on the gate from the recommended section advised by the OLSC a week or so out from the game (the same place those on the charter will be).

Done Swansea a few times over the years so will be escaping back to Dublin that night.

Ah, crap. We bought match tickets the other day.

We're heading over on the Friday afternoon, staying till Sunday. I think we're staying in the Grand Hotel while we're there, which looks pretty central. I'm sure we'll find plenty of people and places to entertain us while we're there.

(M)any others heading over?

No, just a typo. Fixed it now, thanks.

The grand hotel is literally next door to the train station, the city centre and wind street (the main pub/club area) are about 5 minutes walk away (turn left as you come out of the hotel and basically walk in a straight line and you'll see it) I would probably get a taxi up back up to the hotel in the night as that area is not the nicest part of the city after dark. The stadium is about 20 minutes walk on your right but there is a taxi rank slap bang outside the hotel and should cost you around £7.50 to get there.

The hotel has been done up and looks smart enough, there is a bar in there and they also do food so you should be well set, there are loads of take away burger/pizza places close to it as well if your coming home late and want to grab a bite

ON match day the there is no longer a supporters village but there are two bars / chain restaurants outside where you can have a beer or if you want to go in the ground early you can have a beer chips / hot dogs in the stadium concourse.

I wouldn't worry too much about where your tickets are for, there will be lots of space and if the seats are not taken the stewards don't object you moving so your all sat together

Hope you have a good time and enjoy sunny Swansea
