The 1999 Heineken Cup Final was the final match of the 1998–99 Heineken Cup, the fourth season of Europe's top club rugby union competition. The match was played on 30 January 1999 at Lansdowne Road in Dublin. The match was contested by Ulster of Ireland and Colomiers of France. Ulster won the match 21–6.

Colomiers opened the scoring through a Laurent Labit penalty, Ulster fullback Simon Mason responded with four of his own before half-time. After the break, captain and fly-half David Humphreys added a drop goal, before Colomiers recorded another penalty from substitute Mickaël Carré, but Mason was able to kick two more for Ulster to put the match out of Colomiers' reach. Ulster centre Jonny Bell was named as man of the match.[1][2]
