The Morgan Hotel is nestled in the heart of Temple Bar, which also makes it a great base for watching the world-class performers at the Aviva Stadium, whether it’s on the hallowed sporting turf of the former Lansdowne Road or on a stage graced by some of music’s biggest names and superstars.
The Aviva is about a 40-minute walk from the Morgan, but there is nothing better for building the anticipation than that pre-match or pre-gig stroll through Dublin city centre out to the stadium. Heading through the historic prettiness of Georgian Dublin, the crowds begin to build and move towards the venue. The chatter, the excitement, the pleasant pre-match anxiety of what sport’s wheel of fortune might bring. You know what they say? Irish fans are some of the best in the world. There are fewer greater atmospheres than the adrenalin pumping, heart thumping one you feel attending an Irish match.
As you reach the bridge over the Grand Canal, the Aviva Stadium comes into view in all its majesty. The scene of momentous displays from the Irish rugby team, epic underdog showings from the football team and unforgettable gigs from music’s superstars. Your pulse quickens at the thought of what’s to come.
The volume increases the vibrant voices and hearty laughter of friendship fills the air as you pass famous Dublin pubs. The places where events are previewed a million times in the build-up and dissected into billions of pieces in the aftermath.
Once the event is over, allow your heart rate to come down on a stroll back from the Aviva to the Morgan. Whatever the outcome, Dublin is the home of plenty of places where the night can be prolonged in the company of friends and friends you haven’t met yet.
And, as it is often the case for an island perched on the edge of the Atlantic, if the weather doesn’t allow for the stroll, the Morgan Hotel is an 8-minute walk to Tara Street train station. Hop onto a train and find yourself on the doorstep of the Aviva Stadium within 5 minutes.
