Owner description: Croke Park has been at the heart of Irish sporting life for over 100 years. With a capacity of 82,300, this magnificent stadium is actually the third largest in Europe. Its size is only part of its greatness, however, as you’ll discover on this eye-opening, access-all-areas tour. From quirky insights into why Croke Park’s grass is always greener to learning about defining moments in Irish history, the passionate Tour Guides will take you on an inspiring journey around our national stadium. Some of the highlights include taking a seat in the VIP area, getting a birds-eye view from the media centre, sneaking a peek inside the dressing rooms, and of course, walking in the footsteps of legends as you go pitchside through the players’ tunnel!

I really really wasn't expecting to enjoy this tour as much as I did but it was fantastic! They show a film at the start about getting the grounds ready for a big match day and all the work that goes on behind the scenes - it was very emotive and really captured the excitement of match day. Going out onto the pitch and hearing the crowd roar as the players would hear them was fantastic. The talk about the history of the stadium was actually very informative and our tour Guide did a great job of pitching it to our group which was mainly 8 year old kids......they all seemed to enjoy it. Highly recommend this tour even for people who have no interest in GAA it is very entertaining.

Slightly worried we'd be lumbered with all the school trips that happened to be visiting midweek too but thankfully we had a separate tour. A small group actually, only 7 of us!

You get to see a short film to give you an idea of Gaelic sports and all the people that work behind the scenes at the stadium. Throughout the tour you see all aspects of the stadium - changing rooms, bar and hospitality, boxes, press rooms, etc.

The stadium itself is amazing - huge! And lots of technology such as heating underneath the turf itself and auto sprinklers.

The museum is a good laugh too - besides the historical info there's games where you can test your skills to see if you could cut it in Gaelic athletics!

Not really near much else so could be worth hopping a taxi to get here but worth a visit.

The stadium tour was interesting but I was disappointed with the museum. I thought it would be bigger and have more archival material and artefacts. I was glad I went to it but I woudl not be going back a second time.

If you are interested in sports stadiums this is certainly worth a visit. Croke Park is a very imposing stadium if a little drab to look at. The tour includes a short video that you watch in the press conference room and the museum gives a good background on Gaelic sports which as an English person I had no knowledge of! The tour takes you into all areas you'd expect to visit from the tunnel, pitch side,executive boxes, dressing rooms etc and whilst I was surprised at how basic some of the faculties were it didn't detract from a very interesting visit to one of Europe's largest stadiums. As a football fan it was good to see terraces again. Croke Park is about 20 minutes walk from the city centre, although you will have to walk round most of the stadium to enter the museum section. It is easy to find your way to the stadium as it can be seen dwarfing the houses around it.

We enjoyed the tour before our Gaelic football game. It was a little hard to find where to go in, but a worker was very helpful.
