Visit the interactive area of the GAA Museum--admission included in the tour--to try your hand at hurling, an ancient game that has been played for 3,000 years. The top tier of the stands, 30 m (98 ft) above the pitch, offers panoramic views of Dublin.

  • A small group were given a guided tour of this magnificent stadium. Not knowing much about the games played there was not an obstacle. One of Europe''s largest sporting venue and well worth a visit  more »

  • I love Croke Park...the atmosphere is amazing, the noise of the crowd is electric and it makes whatever band you are paying over the odds for a ticket to see raise their game and put on a performance. Disabled facilities are fantastic, access not a problem, exiting just takes time for 80,000 people to leave first. The Guinness is good and there are plenty of taps so waiting isn't as bad as other venues. Parking can be problematic but like everything you pay for what you want.
  • Absolutely one of the best. Greeted with a smile and how was our travel to Ireland. Each individual was most gracious. Temperature of our room was just right. Our questions were answered quickly. We were able to get our tickets for the double decker bus tour very easy. The breakfast we had twice was exquisite.
  • Good but entry annoying because signage is poor. Not a regular punter so a bit green but? Joined a queue to get through security checks, then joined another queue for the turnstile. On reaching the turnstile we were told that we should have bought our tickets from the van outside. What van outside? No signs! Had to go back outside, join the queue for the van, then rejoin the queue for security etc. etc. etc. Silly, put up clearly visible signs. Park the van(s) nose or tail to the road so both sides are equally accessible, not parallel to the road.
  • No such thing as a bad seat, no obstructed views. Leave before the end of the half if you want to get a pint as the queues are too long otherwise and you'll miss the restart. Friendly atmosphere; if you're a foreign tourist wondering about any trouble or violence, that isn't a thing in our sport. Never had a bad experience here!!
  • Great location for conferences as well as football and hurling. There's a car park and good catering. Nice rooms for seminars and a secure sort of feel to it, unlike hotels with conference facilities. I'm only losing one star here because every thing is several flights up but the lifts are incredibly insufficient and they don't let you use the stairs in non emergency situation.
