Have attended games at this stadium on a number of occasions and the seating quality varies dramatically. The two lower tiers offer a decent view of the spectacle on offer but find the upper tier seating to be below par for a national stadium. The food, bar and toilet facilities are of a good standard

Great stadium, atmosphere, facilities, accessibility and result! We visited for the semi-final of the European Cup, Saracens v Munster. We had a great time and were well looked after by helpful and efficient stewards and staff alike. There were plenty of bars and food outlets, enough to look after 50k odd visitors!

Efficient to the verge of slick, helpful stewards who pre-empt your questions. Having mobility issues I am always a little wary but despite 50,000 fans milling around, a gent made time to show me to the elevator

Being a proud Irishman I was incredibly disappointed with my first (and surely now my last) visit to the Stadium on Saturday 22nd April. First of all the signage to the Stadium was either non existent or where provided, poor. What is wrong with having a few you are here maps scattered around the stadium. Our view was poor in... More

The glass end makes sense when you see that there are two storey houses yards from the pitch! The famous roar was almost frightening in its concentrated intensity. Fortunately it went a bit quieter when Saracens took control! As ever in rugby the Munster fans were generous and cordial in defeat. Great day trip!

Never again ! Attended Munster v saracens game. Paid for premium level seats .. wish we hadn't. Had to take the purple route with zero signage we were lucky we weren't late. Arrived with 10 mins to spare thought we'll have a drink - forget it. The match would have been over before we got it. We were level 305... More

Like all rugby fans I am proud of the massive development undertaken at Lansdowne Road in recent years. I have only been there a couple of times, but always find it a great experience. The grounds are close enough to the City Centre to walk, or you can get there by Dart, bus or taxi. There are bars inside and... More

It was my first live game at the stadium and I have to say the atmosphere was crazy in a good way. To be honest I had preconceptions before the match that my seat in south stand behind post was going to be bad in terms of view etc. It turned out I was wrong, one small thing got confusing... More

Staying near to the Aviva stadium we went on the tour to fill some time. I was so pleased that we did. Our female guide was excellent. She spoke clearly and had a wealth of relevant knowledge when asked questions. As well as seeing the ground from various levels we got to look at the home changing room, baths, etc.... More

We were in the premium seats. Nice bars but note that you can't take drinks down into the seats. Good viewing spots behind the glass. There is a sporting goods store on the outside of the stadium that has shirts, etc... Very close to the Landsdowne DART station.
