The tour guide was pleasant and able to answer any questions. This is a new stadium so not much history on the tour apart from a small exhibition in the media room celebrating the old Lansdowne Road.

Went here to see the Ireland football match and wasn't disappointed. We were way up in the gods but still had a great view of the pitch. There was some viewing restriction but not enough to give a bad review. The seats were cheap and the atmosphere was electric.

Went to the Gibraltar match with my son, traveled from Co. Mayo and collected our free FAI tickets from the Ballsbridge hotel before the match, Our seats were on the upper east tier and I suffer from incredible Vertigo, and mentioned it to the staff when I realised how high up we were, and they moved us to seats behind...

Had my first visit here yesterday to see Ireland V Gibraltar. Very impressive structure and very well laid out and planned. Tickets refer to colour entrance to use so it would be helpful if there was sineage on the way to the stadium showing the coloured routes instead of having to ask Gardai all the time. Every clean - seats,... More

This is a great stadium and I have been a good few times. Easy to get to, lots of bars in close proximity which is good. The lay out is good but sometimes finding the entrance is not always intuitive!! Once your in though, its easy to find the seats and depending on the game, the atmosphere can be good... More

We actually did not visit. But it was at the end of the street in which we were staying (Lansdowne Road). So we couldn't miss it. It is a sight to see, stunning. If we had the time we would have taken the tour.

I had my first visit here a few months ago. We were lucky enough to see Roger Waters play the wall album here. I found the stadium well laid out. There were plenty of Toilets, refreshments etc. The really great thing about this place is the Dart (train) station is right outside.

I've been to the stadium several times and it never disappoints. It's so modern and almost spine tingling as Johnny Sexton would swing his foot back and strike the ball fiercely. In every match the mood is great, winning or losing. The catering is top of the range and extremely welcoming. The most exhilarating experience when Amhran na bhFiann or... More
