Owner description: Ericsson 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!

“A fabulous day out”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

Having won tickets for ourselves, we bought an extra two for our kids....not being Gaelic or Hurling fans we were not sure what to expect...we were not disappointed...it was a fabulous experience and amazing tour. Our guide Adam was just FAB, very friendly, relaxed, informative humorous, and honest, he certainly made the tour that more special by involving our two kids and allowing Jack to recall what he had heard on the tape to the group. He certainly knew his stuff on Dublin, we didn't actually expect such an indepth tour, we just thought it was a walk up on the roof....it surpassed anything we could have expected....a definitely must do when visiting Dublin...Thanks Adam, as Jack said "see you in a few years!"

“Fantastic Tour”
Reviewed 18 July 2014

Having received a gift voucher for the Skyline tour, we didn't know what to expect. What a fantastic way to spend a Sunday (or any) afternoon. This tour is approximately 2 hours long and it flew by. We had a brilliant guide, Adam who was great craic. It was a very clear sunny afternoon and the views were spectacular. We had an audio guide also which gave a great review of each of the monuments/views. You don't have to be a GAA fan to appreciate this tour and you can spend time before or after in the GAA museum if you like. I would have happily paid for this tour. Brilliant day out. Well done Adam, you are a mind of information.

“Brilliant tour, not just for GAA fans”
Reviewed 18 July 2014

Have to admit, I've been meaning to do this tour for a while as it comes highly recommended by anyone who's taken it and now I know why. We did this as the end of a business meeting and to be honest, none of us knew what to expect.

Our tour guide, Con, was a legend. Great craic, very very knowledgeable with loads of interesting factoids not only about Croke Park but about Dublin in general (the views of which, were stunning from the skywalk).

We could have easily stayed an extra hour on top just looking out at the Dublin skyline. The view over the pitch was a highlight, it kind of creeps up on you as you're walking down the outcrop but what a sight once you're there.

Would highly recommend this not only if you're a tourist, I've lived/worked in Dublin for years and kept putting this off. Don't make that mistake, go do it now.

Thanks once again to our tour guide Con, legend.

“Great Day Out For Everyone- not just GAA Fans”
Reviewed 15 July 2014

Had a great trip to Croker today to take part in the Skyline Tour. Didn't really know what to expect as received the vouchers as a present- however, from the get go our Tour guide Hannah was brilliant. The tour really gives you an overall view on the stadium inside and outside, from the top to the bottom. The Tour is really for everyone in the family. The info given - by Hannah- is broad ranging info and history on GAA & Dublin and the surrounding areas that can be seen from the amazing views on top of the Stadium. Hannah had also got a great way of presenting the facts and info- interesting and humorous. We had the option of the audio option of the tour but you really wouldn't even need it as the guides can go above and beyond what you need to know.
Overall- great value for money, great views of all over the stadium, amazing views from on top of the stadium and a great way to spend two hours on a sunny summers day! Well worth a visit.

Great way to see the city and learn about some of the history and culture. Our tour guide Hannah made us welcome and at ease. Access to GAA museum afterwards was wonderful-the exhibitions were both interesting and interactive. Great value for money. Would definitely recommend.
