However the 32-year-old lock has been snapped up by Bernard Jackman’s Top-14 side, who edged out Connacht in a thriller in the Challenge Cup quarter-finals.
Connacht signed Muldowney from Exeter Chiefs in 2013, and he made his debut against Zebre in September of that year.
Muldowney has signed a two-year deal with Grenoble, he said: “I am happy to have signed for Grenoble. My family and I look forward to arriving.
“This is a beautiful city and a fantastic rugby club! I spoke with Bernard Jackman several times and he has a great vision for the club, which is very exciting and I’m looking forward to, hopefully, playing a role.
“It’s also a great opportunity for me to play the Top 14, that one of the best and most challenging competitions in the world.”
