Four of Ulster's tries came in the first half, Mark McCall's side racking up the bonus point before the break.
Bank of Ireland/Belfast Telegraph Man of the Match Matt McCullough went over first from a Roger Wilson break and David Humphreys converted. Connacht replied with a penalty but tries followed from Ulster hooker Rory Best and winger James Topping with Andrew Trimble's touch-down just before half-time earning the home side the bonus point.
Over half an hour passed in the second half before Tommy Bowe racked up Ulster's fifth touchdown of the night after a pass from new scrum-half Issac Boss who was making his Ulster debut, however there was some consolation for Connacht at the end of the game with a try from winger Keith Matthews, converted by Paul Warick.
