Hundreds turned out to see the squad as they prepare for the next season, and Ian Crowe City of Derry Rugby Club president said the day was a great boot for local Ulster fans.
"We've a lot of players and supporters here that go to Ravenhill most Friday nights, and it's a wee payback for them," he explained.
For returning Ulster player and Limavady native Niall O'Connor, the trip was closer to home than for most.
The 25-year-old is back at the club after his two year deal with Connacht was cut short.
"Going away top Connacht I had a great year, last year, but in the back of my head I always wanted to return at some stage, with Ulster being my home club.
"Perhaps I wasn't expecting to be home so soon, but I'm delighted to be home and I'm enjoying my time at Ulster again," said Niall.
This season will be the first with new coach Mark Anscombe, who replaced Brian McLaughlin. The New Zealander has some big shoes to fill, as McLaughlin led the side to a Heineken cup final but Stephen Ferris said the squad is looking to the future.
"That is in the past now and we can take a lot out of that season," the flanker told UTV.
"It is a great achievement to get to the final. I was disappointed in our league finish we came fifth or sixth on the table, but yes it was a good season. We will put that behind us now and look forward to the next season and see if we can go one step further."
