Gopperth right footed a 50th minute penalty through the posts for a 13 6 advantage, with Ulster sending on big guns Ruan Pienaar and Jared Payne in response.
But the visitors were made to pay for a sloppy D Rose 7 Christmas Edition finish to the first period, as Doyle saw yellow for not rolling away and Leinster pounced for a try in the very next phase.
Gopperth was undone by the difficult kicking conditions again on the quarter hour mark, stabbing a penalty effort from the left across the posts.
