The tour guide was very knowledgeable and gave us a great insight into how the stadium operates. We were able to see the pitch from various vantage points and appreciate the history of the site and the previous stadium.

My husband and I attended a Q&A held by the IRFU midweek here: The only downfall on the whole night was the staffs inability to tell us how to get to the room where the event was taking place. We entered the main entrance initially expecting to be allowed get to the room through here. The receptionist advised us to... More

Just incredible! I went to Aviva twice. Once it was a rugby match, Ireland was playing a friendly against Wales and I loved it. It was my first experience on a rugby match and was great. The second one it was a boring soccer match! Ireland against Poland and it was 1-0, the goal made on the first minute. So... More

Took my 12 year old son here to see Ireland play in the (rugby) Autumn International vs Canada. He was in awe ! We got great seats about 10 rows back at ground level (you need to be at least 5 rows back to avoid getting wet if it rains). We were so close we might as well have been... More

Pretty good overall. Went with my son (we are Canadians) and were in a group that had large numbers of people from Ireland. They were more into the rugby aspect while we were into the building itself. Got to see inside dressing rooms, media room, main playing surface. Tour guide was okay but a bit rushed to move on always.
