Aviva Stadium – Meetings & Events
Aviva Stadium is a stand out purpose built event venue that marries a spectacular event space with an award winning in house team and consistently delivers outstanding results. With 27 awards to our name and growing we are immensely proud of our dedicated in house team who ensure that every event be it an international match, world famous artist in concert or an international conference is run to the highest standards of service, delivery and health and safety.
Sport first came to Lansdowne Road in 1872 when Henry Wallace Dunlop leased the existing site from the Earl of Pembroke’s estate. It was designed to be a multi-purpose sports venue with an athletics track, a cricket pitch, a rugby pitch, as well as facilities for both archery and tennis. The first rugby international was held in March 1878 between Ireland and England making it the world’s oldest rugby international test venue and the oldest sports stadium in Europe.
Lansdowne Road continued as the home of Irish international rugby and football until 2007 when it was demolished to make way for a new state of the art stadium. The new Aviva Stadium then opened its doors in May 2010. Since then the stadium has become an engrained mark on the landscape of Dublin city. Since opening, Aviva Stadium has not only hosted major international sporting fixtures but more unique events such as American College Football and Rihanna in concert and quickly has become one of the most popular conference and events venues in the city due to the contemporary and versatile spaces available and its sheer capacity and size.
With our first class location in the leafy Dublin 4 suburb and flexible venue facilities, we will work with your team to create an event that attendees will be talking about for many years to come.
Aviva Stadium has over 50 unique spaces to accommodate both small or large meetings & events all located within the modern and stunning venue in Dublin city. Unlike most Stadium venues, we are home to two national teams and therefore very brand neutral in decor throughout our event spaces, with our famous pitch as your event back drop.
It’s not hard to see why our spectacular event spaces can transform from plenary sessions of 1000 to gala dinners of 1200 and world street food events for 3,600.
