On a recent trip to Dublin my husband and I decided to be tourists for a day or 2 and started with Croke Park. I am so impressed that we have this facility which is world class. We had a lovely guide Emma, who went throught he health and safety with us before we started the tour. We were "tied in" once we got to the roof and felt very safe. The views were fantastic starting with Glasnevin and the Botanic Gardens to the Spire and the G.P.O. - and well done if you can spot that without help! - to the views of Dublin Bay. We didn't have great weather, we could see the rain on the Dublin mountains but it didn't take for the experience. There are 5 viewing platforms where you get a brief synopsis of the places of interest - this sparked our interest in going to Dublinia, Christchurch, the Chester Beatty Library and Dublin Castle which we did the folowing day ( and again these are world class attractions.) You get a birds eye view of the pitch which looked fantastic. The whole tour took about 2 hours. There is a fee of e25.00 per person, we got into the museum free with the ticket and this is well worth taking in while you are there. It is very well laid out and very informative and colourful. There are interactive areas where you can hit a sliothar or kick a ball or test you balance - lots to do and good fun. You can also do a stadium tour but we ran out of time and will do it another day.
