Aviva Stadium, also known as Lansdowne Road, is the home stadium of the Irish football and rugby teams. It has capacity for over 50,000 spectators and is Ireland’s first, and only, UEFA Category 4 Stadium.
Aviva Stadium is built on one of the oldest sports grounds in the world, the first ever international athletic meeting took place there in 1876. It was called Lansdowne Road until 2007, but the when the old stadium was demolished for redevelopment, it was reopened as the Aviva Stadium in 2010 after the naming rights were bought by Aviva Group.
Tours of the stadium were available until 2020, but currently the only way to access it is by attending a ticketed sport or music event. The best time to attend the stadium is during the annual Six Nations Rugby Championship between February and March. However, tickets for these events are often sold out well in advance, or only available from re-sellers with huge mark-ups. Check here to see upcoming events.
