History of Lansdowne Road Stadium

Built-in 1872, the Aviva Stadium is the oldest Rugby Union grounds worldwide and the oldest sports stadium in Europe.

It has since then become an amazing sports venue as well as a concert and event venue. It has fantastic tour packages available for groups of all sizes. They usually run 7 days a week but are closed when the Aviva Stadium is in use.
