  • Visiting Aviva Stadium is relatively simple compared to some stadiums. Easy to have a few drinks in the centre before the game, then we grabbed a taxi to drop us off to give us 5 min walk into ground....  more »

  • The entrance to this lovely stadium is rigidly controlled which seems unnecessary. Once one has climbed the stairs( there is a lift) there is a floor of bars and eating outlets which are efficient. I ...  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.
