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

WOW! We loved this stadium and the experience it provided. We watched the team leave the Shelbourne then headed over. The match was eventful and the beer was great. Go to a game if there is one on while you are in Dublin.

I visited the stadium as my company had a corporate event there. It is definitely worth a visit. Mind blowing and captivating. I enjoyed the views.

Fantastic stadium to visit for any event. Visited it a few times for Rugby matches. Easy to get to, always well organised and plenty of stewart's to guide visitors on route & inside. Some queues at peak times for the toilet facilities but they move quickly. Loads of kiosks to buy beverages & treats. Very family friendly !

What a fantastic stadium, very nice interesting design, clean, lots of room even when its a full house. The views and atmosphere inside was breath taking, topped off by a great Irish win ;-)

Brought the boys to the Ireland Vs Georgia Rugby match and had a great day out. The one downside was that the kids behind us were blowing horns non stop for the whole match and it was a pain in the seating area. Please ban this South African travesty! Facilities at the game are excellent, toilets spotless, food stands well... More

Brilliant stadium. Easy access, quick bar service. - bigger queus for the toilet than the bar. Terrific atmosphere - Irish fans were great. Irish defence brilliant, Springboks clueless - not a Google result for us Springbok fans, but still a great weekend
