Opened in 2010, the stadium was built on the site of the old Lansdowne Road Stadium, which was dismantled in 2007. When you arrive, you’ll see from its dauntless but delicate curves just what a modern architectural marvel this is – the Aviva Stadium has even won a prestigious British Construction Industry Award. With a capacity for a whopping 50,000 spectators, the stadium’s sheer size alone is a sight to behold.
While the Aviva Stadium primarily plays home to the Irish rugby union and the Republic of Ireland football teams, it also hosts a diverse range of musical acts. Rihanna, Lady Gaga, The Script and Robbie Williams have all played here. Even the undisputed Queen of Pop herself, Madonna, has performed at this huge venue.
Hosting many sporting events and sell-out concerts every year, the Aviva Stadium is undoubtedly the jewel in the crown of Dublin’s cultural centre. Served by bus services and the Dublin Area Rapid Transit (DART) via Lansdowne Railway Station, it’s also extremely easy to get to. Whatever your reason for coming here, you’ll be blown away by your trip to this modern monument at the centre of Dublin.
