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

A efficient venue to run a business conference with a wonderful view of the pitch. I would advise in the warmer months that you ask them to switch the AC on as they mow the lawn every two hours and it can get quite noisy so you have to close the doors. Staff were diligent and friendly and the tour... More

Visited the Aviva in August 2014 for a guided tour. The stadium is impressive and quirky with its tiny stand compared to three others towering over it. Plenty of great views from the touchline and tunnel and then up to the upper tiers. I've been on a few stadium tours and this one was a little less informative and the... More

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
