Aviva Stadium: Lansdowne Road
Home to the national rugby (IRFU) and football teams (FAI), Aviva Stadium also hosts conferences and welcomes international artists for arena concert tours.
Clayton Hotel Burlington Road is one of the most conveniently located hotels near the Aviva Stadium.
The Aviva Stadium is the oldest Rugby Union ground in the world and site of the oldest sports stadium in Europe. Originally called ‘Lansdowne Road’ the creation of the stadium was inspired by a vision that young athlete Henry William Dunlop had and went on to organise the first All-Ireland Athletic Championships at the site.
The former Lansdowne Road Stadium was demolished in 2007 and replaced with the gleaming glass Aviva Stadium with capacity for 51,700 spectators.
