Hurling is one of Ireland’s national sports and every year in the month of September, Croke Park comes alive as supporters will travel from all over the island to support their local team. I am originally from Cork in southern Ireland and hurling plays a big role in our county.
Croke Park is home to Ireland’s GAA (Gaelic Athletic Association) Museum and to the Skyline Tour which allows guests to walk around the top of the stadium and has great views of Dublin City. It really isn’t for the those with a fear of heights and staff are great on-site so if you do get a little nervous, you do not have to feel under pressure to do the entire skyline tour. They have a lovely cafe on site so you can always get a cup of tea or coffee.
The GAA museum tells the story of Gaelic sports while the Skyline tour focuses on the stadium and its surroundings.
There are regular skyline tours on a daily basis that vary from month to month. Pre-booking is also possible online. The GAA Museum has set opening hours and you are free to wander at your leisure.
