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!

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.

You seen one statium seen them all???? I was under that impression, but I actually had a great time. The tour wasn't boring, but very informative and we had a few giggles along the way. Next time we will to the skywalk becaues that looks fun! I would recommend this tour for anyone planning a visit to Dublin.

My son and I snagged a pair of tickets to the Gaelic Football playoffs. Be sure to try to see a match here; it is great fun and like nothing you have seen at home. Each team represents a county and they each have their own colors/flags and fan favorites. Before the match, we toured the museum and had a great time learning the history of both hurling and gaelic football.

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.
