    Coming to Ireland! Will catch the May 10th game...(Advice thread)

    I am pleased to say that finally, I am able to plan a trip to Ireland.


    It will be the Partner and I’s first, and given her and I’s schedules, the only time we could swing it to coincide with Munster’s home fixtures is the game May 10th against Ulster.


    Added to this is that the Giro d’Italia rumbles through to Dublin the next day, and I have two bucket list sports events crossed off, in a country we both have wanted to visit our whole lives.


    I imagine I will have heaps of questions, but I guess the first is, where should we sit in the stands?


    Thanks all.

    Hi Cali,
    In answer to your question, stand don't sit. Try the east terrace for the authentic experience... Other terraces may disagree with me

      Yes. East terrace or West terrace. East is the side the teams are based / come out of the tunnel. West is the side the club bars are on outside the stadium. To get a prime spot on a terrace like centre and front row or something to lean on, you should be in place an hour before kick off. The trade off with a seat in the stands is that while you're not in the middle of the action and within earshot of the pitch, your seat is reserved and you can stroll in a bit later and sit down. Since the new stadium has been built, I'm a West terrace resident. East is grand, just further from the club bars.

        1st things first, get a ticket! It's an interprovincial derby so could well be a sellout.

                Stand or Terrace. Pick the east side, it's better for both

                  Welcome to Ireland, post any questions/requests you might have, this is a great community forum.

                  Wrt to the game, East terrace gets the thumbs up from me.

                    And don't forget to bring a bottle of brandy hidden under your coat. Tradition dictates you celebrate your first Munster match by offering a snifter to all your new found friends around you.

                      It's usually feckin freezing in Thomond park, unlike Musgrave Park in tropical Cork. So wear an extra layer or two, and as Point suggested some brandy or whisky to keep yourself and fellow supporters warm is always a great gesture.

                        Me bollix, when it rains, it's the east that gets the worst of it.

                              TP is not California. Expect to get wet and cold and make sure all your layers are red. And prepare to be LOUD as our northern cousins will need some quieting (they are very noisy).

                              Also, book accommodation as the Ulster contingent will likely stay down in Limerick for the night.
