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!

After my kids missing a school trip earlier this year and listening to their pals telling them how wonderful the Croke Park tour is took our turn today, for the stadium tour and museum visit, we will return soon for the Skyline tour.

We booked on line so a family visit only costs 16 euro. We had all visited Croke Park many times over the years but it was great to get the" behind the scenes" tour.

Our tour was at 3pm which ended around 4.30, the museum closes at 5pm which did not leave much time for exploring the great museum and games area.
Our guide was very informative and chatted to everyone. The video at the start was very interesting.
Although we arrived half an hour before our tour began I would recommend arriving as early as possible or booking an earlier visit as so much to see. Worth noting a visit to museum, only, is free so we plan to return soon again to look at everything.

We did not eat here but the in-house restaurant looked good.
Plenty of free parking onsite.

We would recommend The Croke Park stadium tour to anyone and look forward to returning again.

A bunch of us paid a visit to Croke Park today and we did the Etihad Skyline tour...Hannah our guide shared her wealth of knowledge as we walked the perimeter of the stadium 42 meters above and viewed sights we wouldn't ordinarily see from any other elevated position. The museum was very interesting - it's worth reading about the 'Ban' rule..and the interactive games will give you a work-out if you want to give the national sports ago.

i visited croke park stadium last saturday with friends from kilkenny, & although i'm a dubliner, i'm very ashamed to admit i have never been in croke park stadium, or croker, as it's referred to by dubliners, prior to this visit.
we booked a guided tour, & our tour guide was orlaith, who was excellent at her job, she answered all of our questions, explained everything very clearly, & made our experience very pleasurable!
we started off by watching a film, about croke park, excerpts from several hurling & football games that were played in croke park over the years, this movie was very informative & enjoyable.
next we were taken on our tour of the stadium, which took us along the area where the buses with players arrive for each game, we were brought out in to the stadium, which is steeped in irish history, & up on to the stands, which holds up to 82,000 fans.
orlaith told us all about the stadiums vast history, how the stand names came about & other interesting facts regarding the stadium.
we were taken in to see the players lounge, where after games, the two teams go to enjoy a meal & drinks for a couple of hours to relax before leaving the stadium. no media or the public are ever permitted in to this lounge after a game, & players can bring only one guest be it a partner, or family member.
in this lounge there is a gigantic waterford crystal chandelier that comprises of 34 footballs, & slitters, representing ireland's 32 counties, also london & new york, this is very impressive & took two years to make.
we were then taken in to the changing rooms, where 34 jerseys representing the 32 counties, london & new york are all displayed along the walls, then we were shown the shower area, given a lot of facts about this, but i won't spoil the fun for those who wish to make their own tour of the stadium & grounds.
for those who are thrill seekers or adrenalin junkies, you can do the Skyline walk, which i believe is fantastic, but heights are not for me.
there are a couple of different tours, comprising of the museum, skyline tour, tour of the stadium, plus lunch.
we did the tour of the stadium grounds, & museum, which a family pass costs €35, & worth every cent.
there is a lovely gift shop where sweatshirts, t-shirts, & other items can be purchased, & i was very impressed by the reasonable prices, as most venues like museums or places of interest usually charge high prices for gifts & souvenirs!
we had one of the most enjoyable days out in croke park stadium, & i would highly recommend it for everyone.

Excellent stadium tour - our guide was really informative and interesting.We got a taxi up to Croke Park as we wanted to visit Glasnevin Cemetery too and weren't sure just where the Cemetary was. We then walked to Croke Park and intended to get the bus back into town but when waiting at the bus stop a local Dub invited us to share a taxi back into the centre - which saved us a lengthy wait at the bus stop.
