If you are coming for a concert be advised the acoustics are the worst I have ever experienced. There is an horrific echo which ruins the live experience

The AVIVA stadium is the replacement for the old Lansdowne Road Stadium. The tour takes about an hour and you get to go behind the scenes and dressing rooms as well as pitch side. If you are a rugby fan or a Soccer fan (it is also the home of the Irish football team) then this is the place for... More

Truly a beautiful stadium with excellent public transport links. We watched the Ireland v Scotland rugby match. Great family day out in a stadium with a lovely atmosphere.

My boyfriend and I went to Dublin for the Scotland vs. Ireland World Cup match. Our tickets were €50 each and we were 3rd row center in the first bowl. It was amazing. The atmosphere was great and everyone was very helpful! Not to mention the crowd was great even though we were cheering for Scotland. Getting there was easy... More

I've wanted to come here for a Rugby match for some time and caught the Scotland Ireland Rugby match in August. The ground has been very well constructed in my opinion to allow easy movement both in and out of it. The views are also excellent. This is not a criticism but the highest main stand seats are approached by... More

We went here to see Ire vs Scotland in the rugby autumn internationals. The stadium was very easily accessible no crowds no waiting. Getting drinks and snack was a doddle. Great lovely stadium.

It wasn't well advertised that they have group tours of the stadium during non-game days. I happen to have read some travel/promotional pamphlet and saw it. The tour was actually really informative and you get good "backstage" access to the player's locker room (with no players in them, of course). The history was quite interesting. You do have to watch... More

As always I will start with the positives. The building itself is very stunning, its architecture is worth seeing. As a location for a gig I wouldn't recommend it. The signage to inform you what gate to go through is very misleading and when you do fathom it out they make you walk miles out of your way. We had... More
