It is a hugely popular sporting venue just north of the very centre of Dublin, attracting fans of hurling and Gaelic football from all over Ireland, having traditionally been used only for these indigenous Irish sports. However, barriers have broken down, and more recently it has also occasionally staged major football, rugby union and American football matches.
The venue offers world-class facilities and also a very select bill of world-class musical artists every year. Be sure to check in advance to see which superstars are due to play Croke Park if you’re heading to Dublin.
As the headquarters of the Gaelic Athletic Association, Croke Park stages the grand September finales of the Gaelic football and hurling championships. But you can visit the venue at any time and enjoy a stadium tour and take in the GAA Museum, which now includes the GAA Hall of Fame. It’s a truly exotic and exciting experience, watching footage of these all-action, hair-raising, largely unfathomable sports!
Even non-sports fans are guaranteed a breathtaking time at Croke Park courtesy of the stadium’s Skyline tour, which takes in views across the city and surrounding counties from the 17-storey high stadium roof.
For Irish sports, stratospheric rock and roll and unbeatable views, visit historic Croke Park.
