Aviva Stadium tour

Timmy and I have been back from Dublin for two months and I've only gotten about halfway through posting my vacation photos. The sheer number of photos I took in Dublin has made the task especially daunting. In this post I will be sharing the photos from our tour of Aviva Stadium.

With our Dublin Passes we could have toured Aviva Stadium and Croke Park Stadium for free, however, we decided that a tour of just one stadium was enough for us. Even though Croke Park is the fourth largest stadium in Europe and home to the Gaelic Athletic Association headquarters, we went with the Aviva Stadium tour. We choose Aviva Stadium solely because it was within walking distance of somewhere else on the Dublin Pass that we wanted to visit, the Number Twenty Nine house. Cameras are not allowed on the tour of the Number Twenty Nine house, so, we did not get any photos, however, there is a virtual tour on their web-site.

When I looked up directions to the Aviva Stadium, I made the mistake of not looking up which side of the stadium we needed to go to for the tour. Lucky for us, an awesome employee was entering the stadium on the side of the building my directions lead us to, and he let us in, and lead us through the stadium to the side of the building we were supposed to go to for the tour.

This photo was taken from the same position as the above photo which makes me quite impressed with the zoom on my point-and-shoot camera.
