The home side picked up where they left off after the break as James Lowe raced through as Leinster moved 21-3 in front.
McGrath notched his second try of the night and he was soon joined by Lowe on the two-try status as Leinster went 35-3 up with just over an hour played.
Leinster weren't done and dusted there either as Jordan Larmour and Robbie Henshaw added tries number six and seven, before an eighth try from Jack McGrath secured a 52-3 home win and sent a daunting message to their European rivals.
