Have been to the aviva on many occasions for matches and afew other things. Good ways to get in,out and around the stadium but is quite hard if you can't find parking near the stadium. No shortage of shops and toilets. Good seating not the worst but not the worst either. Great stadium although while they were building it they... More

Sorry folks, thought the stadium was a massive disappointment! Took ages to circumvent the ground before we were let in only to discover our top price seats only really allowed us to see 75% of the pitch (block 141), then took an age to get out too! :( food in the ground also very disappointing!!

We came to watch England play Ireland in the 6 nations, so when we landed this was the first attraction we went to, setting the tone for our weekend. Barry was our tour guide, very informative and friendly chap. We went into the trophy room, media centre, press conferance room, watched a film on the old stadium/new stadium, changing rooms,...

Six Nations, Ireland v England at the Aviva Stadium. Much prefer the old one. Not enough seating capacity, poor screen coverage. Fortunately the warmth, hospitality and true sportsman ship of the Irish makes up for it.

Now re-named "Aviva", however, I still like to call it Lansdowne Road Stadium. Is a fantastic place to watch sports! I love it and have been lucky enough to watch a football game and a few Rugby matches. I had the chance to access to different areas of the stadium and each area was great, especially the premium seat, in... More

The stadium is very impressive, unique and beautifully designed. The stadium was better than the act Michael Buble, we are looking forward to seeing a rugby match here as it is big but still intimate.

Easy to get to, very efficient entry and exit. Staff very very helpful and friendly. Too much fast food no healthy options. Bring a cushion..seats are very hard won't do a dodgy hip any good!!!
