Located in the beautiful Dublin seaside area of Killiney in South County Dublin, the Fitzpatrick Castle Hotel is just 12km to the Aviva Stadium, accessible via the DART train which goes directly to the stadium. Whether you are attending a concert, sporting event, corporate meeting, event, stadium tour, or summer party, the Aviva Stadium is one of Ireland’s premier venues and has a number of attractions.
The Aviva Stadium is on the famous Lansdowne Road and is currently the home to the Irish national rugby team as well as the Irish national football team. As a result of its redevelopment in 2010, it is an all-seated 57,000 capacity stadium, which rises to a 65,000 capacity for concerts.
Aviva Stadium is well-known for hosting Irish rugby matches in the Six Nations and Summer Series, as well as football matches from the Irish national team whether it be friendlies, European qualifiers, or World Cup qualifiers. The Aviva has even agreed to host NFL American football matches which include the classic match between Navy vs Notre Dame in college football.
Outside of sports, the Aviva stadium hosts music concerts that have included some big names like Phil Collins, Billy Joel, Rihanna, and Robbie Williams. If you want to drop by without a concert or match to go to, you can attend a stadium tour which gives you a deep insight into the soul and character of one of Ireland’s architectural marvels.
The Aviva excels in the meetings and events world as well, being nominated in 2018 for three Event Industry Awards. The Stadium has a number of meeting rooms, suites, press rooms, and function rooms.
