The GAA Museum and Skyline Tours are back!
From Monday May 10th, the GAA Museum will reopen its doors giving GAA fans an opportunity to get to Croke Park this summer! Tickets for Skyline Tours or a visit to the GAA Museum must be booked online in advance at www.crokepark.ie/tours
Croke Park Stadium Tours cannot take place just yet, but there’s plenty to enjoy in the GAA Museum in the meantime.
Those who book a self-guided visit to the GAA Museum will have access to two floors of exhibitions charting the history of Gaelic Games from ancient times to the present day. The original Sam Maguire and Liam MacCarthy trophies are on display as well as medal collections, jerseys and footage from memorable GAA matches. Visitors can also spend time in the GAA Museum Hall of Fame and will have a chance to view the very special Remembering Bloody Sunday exhibition. This exhibition opened last September to remember the victims of Bloody Sunday on the 100th anniversary of the tragedy.
Those who wish to take a Skyline Tour will be treated to panoramic views of Dublin from the open-air walkway on the rooftop of Croke Park. There are five stops along the route, each offering a different outlook on the city. Tour guides will point out the landmarks and treat visitors to stories about Dublin’s most famous places. The highlight of the tour is the suspended walkway above the pitch where visitors take in the stunning views of the Croke Park pitch – a very welcome sight!
