Was at Aviva Stadium for the final of the Uefa Cup between Fc Porto and Braga. The organisers of this event did a brilliant job and no trouble to find your seat. All clean in and outside the Stadium, and the atmosphere was amazing. My only negative feedback would be that there where no food or drinks facilities before or... More

The stadium tour was brilliant. We got to see the press room, the impressive facilities which the players use and find out about everything from the history of the stadium, to how emergencies are dealt with and the make up of the grass. My boyfriend loves rugby and was in awe of the stadium the whole time and the way... More

Great experience for who loves sports... the guide was very nice and very helpful - or he loves to take pictures. The stadium is very beautiful inside and outside.

At the Aviva for the Leinster V Wasps match. Not a great spectacle, as Leinster have not been playing all that well of late. At least it was a win, but it was a close run thing! The stadium, as always, was fantastic - the pitch looked in great condition, the floodlights are amazing, and the seating view pretty good.... More

We were at a loose end before flying and as sports fans we wandered down to the stadium. The tour was only €10 and lasted an hour. We got to see the charging rooms, press area, watched a film about the history of the stadium. We also went through the tunnel and took pictures pitch side. Our guide was very... More

I had the privilege of seeing Ireland play South Africa in a friendly International . My first visit to the stadium and despite being in 'the gods' we had a great time. Good bands playing in the bars and a good atmosphere. Would love to see another big game here.

Aviva Stadium offers a great experience in a new stadium that has character without the sterility that often accompanies modern buildings. The food was decent and provided more options than expected. The only note I would make is that depending on which entrance you have to use, you might get confused getting there as some gates require walking through residential... More

We done the stadium tour in January and when our game was moved from the RDS to the aviva we flew straight over . Tickets were reasonable and the stadium is amazing and seems bigger then the 50,000 it holds . Only downside I would say is that the concourse areas were a little cramped compared to other grounds I've... More

If you like rugby and you happen to be in Dublin when a game is on at Lansdowne Road you really should try to get a ticket. The stadium is very impressive with great facilities (indoor bars!) and a fantastic match atmosphere. It's a pleasant 30min walk from the center of Dublin but it will take longer if you stop...

We attended the USA v. Ireland soccer game at Aviva in November. The stadium is awesome. The attention to detail in the architecture was really cool. The event staff was very helpful. Great place to watch a soccer game (I'm sure the same holds true for rugby as well). Important to note that we were not allowed to bring beers... More
