    An amazing experience touring Croke Park.
    An amazing experience touring Croke Park. My tour guide was warm, welcoming, funny and highly informative. We toured the locker rooms, walked the field, even experienced the corporate clubhouse. This is a must when in Dublin

    Top quality tourism
    This was brilliant, I have to say. It’s a tour that’s been on our list for a number of years now and to be honest, it exceeded our expectations. We did the 11am tour, and even though there was lots of activity due to the ladies club football all irelands, we loved the behind the scenes feel. Our guide was AMAZING. I didn’t catch her name, but she was brilliant at explaining everything in a way that it landed well for both the Irish GAA fans and foreign visitors alike. A wonderful insight into this amazing stadium. Put it on the list if your in Dublin. It takes around 2.5 hours to do the tour and museum. Well done Croke Park, good job!

    Stadium tour Croke Park
    Brilliant experience overall. Learned even more about the history and culture of Ireland. Was fascinating to hear about the founding of Hill 16 and cultural background to one of Irelands most famous stadiums in the history of our country! As an avid Kerry fan have been to Croke park countless times and seen Sam being lifted too, even with a famous Jig by a famous Kerryman. The highs, the lows, more enjoyment than anywhere I have visited. Nothing better than seeing your team lift Sam in front of over 82 thousand people up the those famous steps. Memories I will certainly cherish forever more and hopefully more to come! A great thing to do for families and couples, plenty of Irish History learned.

    Great experience
    We really enjoyed the tour. It was a great way to learn more about the history of Irish sport. Gerry was a brilliant tour guide who made the tour accessible to everyone and got us all involved, even us who aren’t from Ireland. Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting.

    Very enjoyable tour
    I did the GAA Stadium tour today. Our guide was a lovely lady called Annette. It really was a great experience. Annette was very knowledgeable and had a great knack of encouraging questions and banter among our group. She showed us all the backstage areas of the stadium - dressing rooms, tunnels, press area etc. It gave a lovely insight into a big match day from the players perspective.

    Very educational and fun
    I had very little knowledge of Gaelic sports. This tour and the museum were a wonderful surprise. The tour was awesome. our young guide was very polished and very knowledgeable. We got to see a lot of behind the scenes parts of the stadium, including the locker room. We coved the entire stadium from field level to the press area. The museum is very well done. An educational video is a must as it explained the history of Bloody Sunday which was right in this stadium. The interactive section was fun. I got to try hitting the ball. A test of my reaction time was failed miserably. I highly recommend this tour and the museum, even if you know nothing about these sports.

Fantastic tour. We had two great and enthusiastic guides. Seamus and ?? They clearly love the GAA. We were in the dressing rooms, the media room, got to go pitch-side and walk up the steps to hold the winning cup. Lots of information given and a bit of banter had with all.

Fantastic insight into Irish history as well as the sporting history. Stadium was magnificent and kids loved being able to run up the steps and lift the Liam MCarthy cup.
Our guide Evan made the tour for us, he was aware of all the different mix of people on the tour from the kids to locals to tourists and adapted parts of the tour accordingly. He is a great asset to Croke Park.

This tour has a good balance of sport and history of this very impressive venue. Covers all the aspects that you would hope to see from the changing rooms, media, hospitality, pitch and stands. There’s some great displays and films in the museum and also some good activities for children. Cafe does brilliant coffee and is well priced with friendly staff.

My son works in the sports industry in the US so was very interested in what an Irish stadium was like. The tour was great! Very informative and comprehensive. Got to see all the various areas of the stadium and learn a great deal about the GAA

The stadium is impressive but the staff really make this experience. The tour guides are super knowledgeable and friendly, and explain everything well for an international audience that perhaps don't know much (or anything) about the GAA and Irish sports. The tour takes in all the important areas like the changing rooms, pitchside and great views from the stands, whilst the museum is just the right size to be able to get around without getting bored or overwhelmed. Highly recommend if you're a sports fan visiting Dublin.

We were a family group of 5.
We had 1 t1 diabetic and our tour guide John could not have been nicer or more accommodating.
He was friendly and had an extensive knowledge of the GAA&croke park.
For someone like myself who is not into sport I really enjoyed it.
Great family day out.
Great cafe too&staff are very professional and friendly.
I would highly recommend the tour.
