My approach to getting out of the Ricoh: (i) get the GTD remapped, (ii) fill it up with the good stuff (not standard) (iii) hit the aceleratrix (iv) leave Coventry with all the appearance and speed of an intercontinental balistic missile.

45 mins on the "Airport Hopper"?

Not saying buses are great here or anything but as a regular user - they are ok


Use the Airport 757 via the Tunnel, and see "Dockside Dublin" rather than Dorset Street for your arriving vista. Hop off on the Quays or D'Olier St and pick up a Luas or Bus to anywhere.

Best value and best route from the Airport. Goes to Camden St Terminus but good connecting points also.

This sounded great until I realised that it was the same price as the Aircoach which leaves me as close to my house as the Luas.

Return for 1 person is the same price as the quickpark for 2 days. Stick 4 in a car and you can get a week in the quickpark with money left to buy a pint.

Have a Rambler ticket on my leap. Hopper doesn't do discount for leap, just full price, (discount if booked ahead). 30 minute walk to the Belgard for me for the Hopper. Good for early morning flights though. Will be getting to the airport for the Brum flight via Luas from Kingswood, then Dublin Coach from the Mad Cow. Cheaper than the Hopper, not as far to walk, and gives me some extra time in bed. (Have a 60th Birthday to go to Saturday night)! Might not be fully compos mentis on Sunday. (I'll be the one asleep on the Travelator, heading for the 100 gates at Dublin Airport on Sunday morning). :?

Spent too much of my life waiting for Buses in Camden Street. Remember the vista of the Quays when waiting for the 77 in the 80's. (Nun's protesting outside the Virgin Megastore when it dared to sell condoms), whilst I had a pocket full of them fresh from the UK. Those were the days. :)

We (me + son) are on the 19.55 Ryanair Birmingham to Dublin flight. This flight is now sold out - this can only be due to the Leinster game. So I suspect that there will be a good few Leinster supporters looking to get to Birmingham Airport after the game.

I've sent an email to OLSC / Leinster Rugby to see if they will be organising transport from the Ricoh to Birmingham airport after the game. I will report back when I hear back from them, or they may send out a notice about it. We should know soon.

If there isn't an official OLSC bus, there are lots of private minibus / bus operators in the area, and booking one of them wont be difficult.



I got an email response from OLSC saying that they do not have plans to arrange transport for fans after the game. Who is on for clubbing together to book a cab / minibus after the game to Birmingham Airport? Either respond or PM me, and if there are enough commitments I can book something. Its only a short journey (about 14 miles) so shouldn't be expensive.

Two of us are arriving into East Midlands Airport at 9.10am on the morning of the match - 20th Jan. Bus and rail transfers to Coventry from East Midlands seem to be a real mess. Just wondering if any other Leinster supporters are travelling to EMA on Ryanair flight FR534 and if you might be interested in sharing a taxi or minibus to the Ricoh? We are travelling back to Dublin from Birmingham International on the Monday - so it is just a one-way transfer required by us.
