The outside is made of glass. Very good location for people who don't know Dublin well as you can see the building from the DART. Sound system is brilliant. It was a bit scary when leaving though as the Aviva is physically not very big so you do get swept up in the crowd.

My visit which was reassuring as I was not a follower of sport. Our Tour guides was passionate and engaging surrounding various unknown information regarding this excellent stadium. Well worth visiting for people of all ages..

I was in Dublin for Business and had purchased tickets to watch Ireland in the international Rugby games. I had never been to Aviva up to this point but from the outside it was looked stunning. Even talking to event staff, everyone was friendly, nothing was too much trouble even helping to find your seat! The atmosphere was great and... More

God forbid anyone who ever went to the old Lansdowne, the Aviva is the perfect place to watch a match, great views with plenty of bars and shops throughout the stadium, even hosted the Europa League final back in 2011 :-)

Very interesting if you're a fan of sports. Rugby/football especially, history of the stadium is interesting too! Well worth the visit

I've been here for a few internationals, the uefa cup final, and the Irish cup final. All were amazing!! Blagged my way into VIP for the uefa cup final and had the most amazing day. It's a really modern stadium and great pitch. A few nice bars and restaurants nearby.

Great win for Leinster over Bath on Easter Saturday and good to see such a good crowd in stadium supporting the team. Alas, Aviva stadium continues, at both Leinster and Ireland matches, to completely ignore the need to focus even a little on supporter experience. On this, alike other occasions, we thought to have a drink pre-match and wandered back... More
