Attraction details
Owner description: Etihad Skyline Tour is a truly memorable experience and a completely new and unique way to learn more about one of Europe's most vibrant capital cities. Accompanied by an experienced tour guide, visitors will ascent to a walkway 44 metres above the ground on a suspended walkway on top of Europe's 3rd largest stadium to view the landscape of the Irish capital. Audio guides are included in your admission and they are available in Irish/English/French/German/Spanish/Italian. A visit to the recently refurbished GAA Museum is also included in your ticket. The museum celebrates Ireland's national games of hurling and Gaelic football. Test your own skills in the specially designed interactive zone. Skyline is open daily throughout the summer months, and early tours on match days.Croke Park is now part of the City Sightseeing Hop On Hop Off (red buses) bus tour, so getting to Croke Park couldn't be easier!

“Skyline Tour”
Reviewed 14 October 2013

Stunning views and our guide Colm was excellent. He let us go around at our own pace and no pressure to move on to the next platform. Very knowledgeable of the surrounding area and the keypoints around the city.

The Skyline tour is a unique experience and offers a great view over Dublin, it also gives you get a real feel of how massive this stadium is.

“Knew nothing about GAA or Dublin but now I certainly do!”
Reviewed 12 October 2013

I visited Croke park on October 12th. It was my first time in Dublin travelling with a friend. We embarked on the Skyline tour. my friend was a little bit worried about heights but however on arrival we were very well greeted and ensured that he won't be worried by the time he got on the roof of the stadium as we be very well secured.

The tour was full with people from a wide variety of places and our guide Colm was very helpful (especially with us as we needed a little extra care with the audio guides ).

Once up on the roof we could take in all the sights of Dublin. We were lucky it wasn't raining but however it was quite cold so wrap up well, however they do have extra jackets in case you need to borrow one.
We were able to un clip from the cable at each platform and the guide would point out and describe a few landmarks on into the distance,there was also information boards and we had audio guides so we had plenty of information to take in if we wanted to.

There were five different viewing platforms overlooking Dublin.When we got to the fourth platform we got to go on an overhang type platform which hung over the pitch,from here we could look right down to the pitch in between our feet which was 44m down.the guide also outlined some very interesting facts about the stadium.on our decent from the roof our guide asked if we wanted to go pitch side of which everyone did.

Once pitch side we got even more amazing pics and the guide explained how much 'love and care' goes in to maintaining the pitch.

Once the tour was over we were allowed to roam around the 2 level museum of which was very interactive and interesting .

Thanks to Colm for his patience, knowledge ,humour and for welcoming us to Croke Park.

I now have a greater insight into the GAA and the history of Dublin and couldn't recommend it more.

Ps. Make sure to wrap up warm and reserve enough time in your day to take in the Museum.

“Enoy and View & the Craic is great too ....”
Reviewed 6 October 2013

OMG !!!! such a cool way to spend 1.5 / 2.00 above the city ..............
My sister in law and myself took the 1pm tour of the Etihad Skyline in Croke Park today.
Our guide Emma was just amazing, articulate, funny and knowledgeable as she guided us along the Skyline from vantage point to vantage point, giving us amazing insights into local history and folklore,which as a Dub myself it was refreshing to learn some new gems of local history, and also to soak up the banter and the Craic which was great as we meandered along the Skyline.
The views of the city and beyond are wonderful and the landscape is amazing !
A definite " to do " on everyone's list, whether your a native to these shores or are visiting our beautiful city .... come and experience this fantastic trip !!!

“Good views, great anecdotes”
Reviewed 1 October 2013

Attending an action packed football game in croke park whetted my appetite for the skywalk.
Not being a lover of heights I was a little apprehensive. My fears were unfounded it wasn't scary and the views were magnificent.

Our guide was excellent and she had lots of interesting little snippets of information to tell us.

Thanks Emma for our skyhigh tour today ! Very much enjoyed. I would have liked more information about croke park itself and a tour of dressing rooms and pitch would have been a great addition.
