This is not an OSC trip, but we’ve had the following from Travel Lodge Galway! If you’re interested, contact Travellodge directly using the link below:
I’m just reaching out in relation to your upcoming match between the Ospreys versus Connacht taking place in Galway on the 2nd March. We all know Connacht are going to win and it’s not going to be even close, but as hosts we want to be very hospitable and offer a discount on hotel accommodation that’s exclusively available to travelling Ospreys fans. We are offering €60 for a Twin room on the 1st and €115 on the 2nd. However, if staying for the Saturday night only, the rate is €125. This is a highly competitive Room Only Rate.
Our newly refurbished hotel boasts the following
– Brand new super executive rooms and standard rooms
– Brand new bar and restaurant ( with plenty of beer on taps and of course one of best pints Guinness to found anywhere in Galway.
– Brand new lobby and circulation spaces with a large “60 “ curved TV in lobby so we can watch Connacht win J!!
In only a short 8 minute walk (google says 10 mins but we let guests use back of the hotel to access grounds faster) to the Sportsground.
We offers great value for money across, double, twin and family rooms. This is a Travelodge like no other- and soon to rebranded Travelodge Plus.
For those lucky Ospreys supporters travelling to Pau for this weekend’s Challenge Cup match, we’ve had the following information from Pau’s fan club, Section 16e Homme, including an invitation to meet up for a glass of wine on matchday at the stadium!
“For lunch & diner, you can find many places downtown with different french food like around the Chateau de Pau. On Rue des Cordeliers, the Beanz Cafe is awesome for us because the menu is made by ladies from Australia, New Zealand and Ireland. And before or after the game, next to the stadium, La Cantine de la Section is the place to be for eat french food or drink beer. And, downtown on the Boulevard des Pyrénées, the Galway Pau is a pub with French people and from other countries. It’s 1 of the 3 bars on the Boulevard. I hope you’ll find what you want for having a good trip in our South West!!
Next Saturday, you are invited to a friendship moment with our fanclub with a glass of white wine (Jurancon) (on the Bodega on the stadium on your left after the entry)!! See you guys”
Cantine de la Section
Its that time of the month again so get voting to help decide who will win the December’s OSCA. It was a mixed bag in terms of results -beating Scarlets and Stade at home should leave you with a warm feeling, but the two close away losses left travelling fans slightly cold (especially the frozen souls who braved the streets of Paris).
|Sat, 08 Dec||51 – 20||W||Stade Francais Paris|
|Fri, 14 Dec||3 – 12||L||Stade Francais Paris|
|Sat, 22 Dec||19 – 12||W||Scarlets|
|Sun, 30 Dec||22 – 23||L||Dragons|

No Scrum No Win (also known as Club House NSNW) have invited travelling Ospreys supporters to call in for a beer this weekend. The bar comes highly recommended. Its near a selection of metro stops and there is a metro stop 5 minutes away that will take you directly to the stadium.
