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 :-)

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

Easy access with good bar facilities. View of the pitch excellent from all aspects and not too long queuing for the usual! Crowd dispersed rapidly and efficiently. A short walk from the city centre was not too painful.
