Private Boxes Hospitality Critic Review


The Corporate Boxes at the Aviva Stadium are perfect for intimate corporate entertaining in a prestige setting.


The boxes are situated on the executive Premium Level (Middle Tier) in both the East & West Stands, which are side-on to the action. There are 36 corporate boxes that loop Level 4 of the stadium.


The boxes are glass-fronted with views of the pitch, they each have a private bar, dining facilities and a TV monitor.

Private Tables & Private Suites

Private Corporate Boxes are available for 12, 24 or 50 guests. Some boxes are sold on a shared basis.


Padded seats to watch the action are directly in front of the boxes on a sheltered balcony. The seats are at the rear of the Premium Level (Middle Tier), which only consists of a few rows in comparison to the Lower & Upper Tiers.


The facility opens 2.5 hrs before kick-off, which seems a little tight for reception and lunch. You can expect to enjoy a 3-course luncheon prior to the match and post-match finger food.


Table within a Private Box


There is a complimentary bar, including fine wines, however, Champagne is not included. The bar is only open for 1-hour after the match has ended.


Service is left to the waiting staff, there is not a formal hostess service. You will have a dedicated person to look after you and your guests.


There are no guest speakers or player appearances in the corporate boxes.

Car Parking

There are no car park passes included in this package, which means guests will have to use public transport, taxis, or source parking themselves in the Ballsbridge area.


A souvenir match programme is included as well as Ref Talk for each guest.

Dress Code

Most hospitality options have no strict dress codes, however, smart casual is generally adopted (no trainers), it is advised to dress for the weather.

Getting There

An exclusion zone operates on matchdays meaning guests must either walk from the city centre (3km) or use public transport. The closest railway station is Lansdowne Road, which is part of the suburban railway in Dublin known as the DART, and Dublin Bus operates a range of services to the area around the ground.
