Check out team dressing rooms, walk through the player's tunnel, and try out the seats in the VIP area. 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.

  • An incredible stadium. WE attended a hurling semi and loved the experience. The crowd was passionate but well behaved and happy not crazy on both the previaling and losing sides.  more »
  • I was there for the U2 gig, and the craic was fantastic! You cannot know what is really Ireland before going to Croke,for a concert or for a match!  more »
  • We were in the stadium to see the U2 concert and the place is imposing, in addition to being a symbol of the sport in Dublin.

  • 82300 capacity great atmosphere and unique games. Sky walk tour is brilliant and museum is fascinating only drawback on viewing matches is if you are down low in hill 16 the perspex barriers have streaks on them that catch sunlight and impair view. Fairly unbroken good views from everywhere else in the ground
  • Great day out. Skyline and stadium tour was brilliant. The museum tour was fab too. Kids loved the interactive part at the end👍
  • Everything is great about this historic ground. Atmosphere is superb. Especially with a full house. Ease of access was very smooth. Only crib was the tea and coffee stand, a bit scattered. Tea/ coffee in one area, and milk and sugar in another...easily rectified
  • Croke Park is the home to the field sports of Gaelic football and hurling. It is a modern stadium with a capacity of over 82,000 persons. Occasionally it has hosted concerts, international soccer and rugby matches. It also has a conference centre, museum and visitors can, by appointment take a tour that includes a walk on the roof of the stadium with spectacular views of Dublin City. Most enjoyable is going to see your team win as Galway did last Sunday (Sept 2017).
  • Excellent tour. Kids & Adults really enjoyed the tour and the museum. Interactive challenges upstairs were great fun. Staff very friendly and helpful. Great value.

Where to stay in Dublin

Dublin offers everything from luxury hotels to eclectic guesthouses. Explore over 1,000 years of history in the city on foot by staying at one of the hotels or hostels in the city center. The south side of the river has always been a popular place to stay, particularly near Temple University or the tourist nightlife center Temple Bar, but a new crop of attractive options has popped up on the north side as well. For more affordable accommodations, try a hostel or make your way toward St. Stephen's Green for a more comfortable stay at a mid-range hotel. If the artistic spirit of Dublin is what beckoned you, spend your holiday in a guesthouse near the creative Lower Gardiner Street.
