Inspirock Rating:
4.5/5 based on 700+ reviews on the web
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.

  • The stadium is very nice and modern. The train station is practically inside him. Serve some snack options.

  • The atmosphere here is fantastic with a full house (or near enough), but what really lets it down is the sheer number of bad seats. Anywhere around the pitch you can be so low down if you're in the fi...  read more »
  • Goods to a "rugby game" visit. The stadium is new and you have a lot of space (leg room) on the seats. Only the food in the stadium was not the best for this but bit pricey

  • Home of Irish rugby. Unfortunately, the rebuilt Lansdowne Road has lost a lot of its atmosphere in the rebuild, meaning that it's like any other soulless corporate stadium inside, where the intent is to get maximum return from customers and then get them out of the stadium as quickly as possible once the game is over. A good aspect is the unobstructed view from pretty much anywhere in the stadium. There are silly "health and safety" rules, such as having the plastic bottle-tops removed from the soft drinks bottles you just bought. For "crowd safety", apparently, but this is rugby, we don't throw missiles at the opposition! This just serves to make it impossible to buy food & drink for more than one person... It's worth doing one of the guided tours on a non-match day - the film included in the tour shows what the atmosphere used to be like.
  • Recently I took 5 kids with me to the friendly against Holland we were seated in the right hand corner section 107, there was entertainment before and at half time but the PA system was not working in the area we were and therefore we could not hear anything. I thought this was extremely poor and how would you build up pre match atmosphere without been able to hear the pre match entertainment and also adult ticket was €60. I have also booked a season ticket so Im hoping it will be better in the 101 section but if not I wouldn't recommend anyone to be seated in the 107 section.
  • Love this place. Well laid out and great views from any seat. Never been for a concert but any match I have been to has been fantastic to watch.
  • It is a good modern stadium that has multiple decent facilities and (if I believe) disabled access. You are at the convenience of the DART station literally next door.(if Dart Underground is built, I could board at Sallins and change to DART at Celbridge, interchange at Pearse and go down till Lansdowne Road, or Avivia Stadium station). If you get the med-high seating, you will get a good view of the pitch. However, the food is bad, for the high tier seating, be tall or else you will get some viewing troubles. The stairs up to the seating are narrow and unless you are coming from Belfast or Rosslare Europort, the benefits of catching a single train to your destination are snagged and you have to catch a coach, bus or tram.
  • Great stadium with great facilities and a beautiful design. Doesn't quite have the atmosphere of the old Lansdowne Road but to be fair I don't think anything could match that. Like alot of modern stadiums these days you need a head for heights if you are seated in the upper rows of the top tier.
