Stay close to the Aviva Stadium

Aviva Stadium opened its door on 14th of May 2010 and has a seated capacity of 51,700. The original stadium has been in existence at the Lansdowne Road site since 1872. Prior to it being closed in December 2006, it was the oldest rugby union ground worldwide and the oldest sports stadium in Europe.

The stadium's most notable features are its curvilinear shaped stands enclosing the complete stadium, a shape specifically chosen to make sure that the whole area around gets enough sunlight.

Aviva Stadium is now home to the Irish national rugby and Republic of Ireland football team.
