About 5 hours after we initally landed (around 8pm) the 2nd and 3rd buses finally arrived and we were taken onto Eindhoven and arrived there about 9:00pm. Do I have a legit claim?

No compensation due if it's clearly a weather-related problem with landing.

Can someone post another link or just post on here, how to sue Ryanair in UK?

But anyway here goes.
Firstly I presume you have suffered delay/ cancellation in line with the thresholds and reasons required by 261/2004.
As per page 1 of the thread on here, send Ryanair (RA) a letter before action using the templates provided.
They may respond...they probably won't.
After giving them the notice you gave in your LBA, start court proceedings using the European Small Claims Process (ESCP).
This process allows consumers to start cross border claims similar to using the small claims court used here in the UK for a claim against a UK based company.
The form you need to populate to start with is Form A.
Provide as much detail as you can on this including your reasons for starting the claim, and what you have done to try and resolve the issue with RA. Your LBA for example and any reply.
Next you need to issue this through the courts. This can be tricky.
Some courts are just not up to speed with the ESCP. Check with the court you intend to use first....in my experience go for one in your nearest major city.
You will need to take three copies of your Form A and the relevant issue fee ( around £80).
Once issued the court will send RA the papers then sit back and wait for any response...(probably none).
Ok so far?
Do please read my posts on my journey ....any questions get back to me.
The reason ESCP is 'safe' to sue Ryanair is explained pretty well in the process itself.
It basically limits any appeal they may have against a decision given in your favour and doesn't expose yourself to ridiculous costs if any such appeal granted then goes in RA's favour.
There are posts early in the RA thread where one consumer went down the Irish Small Claims Route and was concerned about the possible costs of this....
Here are your refund rights
Let this Forumite know
