As part of a three day visit to Dublin from the UK between Christmas and New Year with two typically easily bored teenage children, we decided, after researching the best things to do in the City, to visit Croke Park and had pre-booked the Skyline Tour. We arrived by taxi after a short ride from the centre of Dublin. The entrance is not very well signed and the surrounding area is rather run down so we wondered whether we had made the right decision to make this visit. However, as soon as we walked into the museum we realised we had made the right choice. Knowing nothing about Gaelic Football or Hurling but having a general interest in sport we were soon learning and becoming interested in the two Irish sports. The Skyline tour itself lasted about 2 hours including the safety briefing and was great fun (if a little cold up on the roof!). The guide was very good - friendly, knowledgeable and interesting. The views of the City were amazing. All the staff were helpful and friendly. The hands on activities upstairs in the museum were some of the best I have found in years of visits to museums and venues like this (suitable for anyone from about 5-75 years old they proved great fun for all of us). We stayed for about 3 hours in total and easily found a cab back to the city on the main road which is about two minutes walk from the door. This attraction is highly recommended and together with the Guinness Storehouse, a definite highlight of our Dublin visit.
