My husband and I really enjoyed the tour of the stadium! The tour guide was wonderful and made it so much more fun!! We did this as part of our Dublin Pass.

We visited as a family of four - two adults and two children. My husband and kids are rugby and football fans, whereas I haven't got the slightest interest. However, I really enjoyed the tour as it was so interesting and you got to see so much. I particularly enjoyed the 10 minute DVD of the demolition of the old... More

It's a really cool stadium! And it's nice to have a wander around inside, but the tour is nothing so special really. Nice views from up in the stands, and nice to see dressing rooms and all, but nothing so special unless you have a particular interest in the stadium for some reason. I think it's nicest from the outside... More

I have been to all of the 6 nations stadiums expect for Rome and I have to admit this was my least favourite not because of the stadium because that was amazing. The tour just wasn't that great and the tour guide didn't really seem interested in telling us a lot

I arranged a tour of the stadium for my Under 8 football team. The person I spoke to was kind enough to arrange for us to have our lunch (which we brought with us) in the press photographers room. Our tour guide was great, can't remember her name but it was Sunday 22nd 2pm Tour. She was great with our... More

Having made it a goal of mine to visit each Six Nations stadium (with just Rome left to see) and in my opinion, the modern look to the Aviva Stadium shapes it as one of the more visually impressive of the bunch.The tour seemed slightly more rushed, and less insightful then the previous tours, however it must be considered whereas...
