Home to both the Ireland national rugby union team and the Republic of Ireland national football team, Aviva Stadium offers guided tours of this historical facility. Built on the site of Lansdowne Road, the stadium continues the site's sporting tradition, which began in 1872 when Henry Dunlop opened sports facilities there. Take a tour of the stadium and visit the press room and the dressing rooms for the home teams, then walk the length of the players' tunnel down to the dugouts.

  • I went to see a game and it was awesome. Beer is good, crowd is fun, and the home-team won! Easy to get here by train.  more »
  • This is the home of Irish rugby/soccer and what a home it is. The atmosphere in here is unreal. Great too for other sports and music concerts. Food and drink as per usual in a stadium is expensive. To...  more »

  • Great stadium. Hosts Rugby, soccer and concerts. Not sure if they do anything else there. I have been there a few times now and found it easy to get to and leave. Large crowds were/are very well managed
  • Best part was City winning the double. It's cold here so wrap up well. Seats are comfortable. Food wasn't bad. Silly thing, serving on one side, on the other, all staff were ready to go, but not opened, bit annoying. Great day out. Very clean
  • The home of Irish rugby and soccer. The 50,000 all seater stadium is an example of a modern sports theatre. Located in leafy Dublin 4 with the DART train station located beside the stadium it is easy to get to and from. Over the years it has seen many historic sporting results and hopefully this will continue into the future.
  • Enjoyed the Rugby here today. Not a great match though. Venue was good. Got served drinks reasonably quickly. Don't make the mistake of queueing up at one of the smaller bars.
  • Food is way overpriced and managing staff can be quite rude! Regular cashiers are fine but the way they're spoken to by managers in front of public is not nice. Atmosphere is great.

Where to stay in Dublin

Dublin offers everything from luxury hotels to eclectic guesthouses. Explore over 1,000 years of history in the city on foot by staying at one of the hotels or hostels in the city center. The south side of the river has always been a popular place to stay, particularly near Temple University or the tourist nightlife center Temple Bar, but a new crop of attractive options has popped up on the north side as well. For more affordable accommodations, try a hostel or make your way toward St. Stephen's Green for a more comfortable stay at a mid-range hotel. If the artistic spirit of Dublin is what beckoned you, spend your holiday in a guesthouse near the creative Lower Gardiner Street.
