Croke Park Stadium

Croke Park is the headquarters of the Gaelic Athletic Association, custodians of Ireland’s national sports, Gaelic Football and Hurling. It is the third largest stadium in Europe by capacity, behind only the Nou Camp and Wembley.

As well as hosting major Irish sporting events, it also regularly welcomes international music acts with the likes of Garth Brooks, Taylor Swift and Ed Sheeran wowing crowds in recent times. 

The stadium, which first hosted the All-Ireland football and hurling finals in 1896 now houses a museum and – not for the faint of heart – the Skyline roof tour, which takes you on foot around the top of the structure. 

If you’re lucky enough to visit during summer it’s well worth checking out an All-Ireland Championship match. These are typically available through Ticketmaster. 


Events on this summer include:

All-Ireland Football Series: Semi-Finals (15/16 July); Final (30 July)

All-Ireland Hurling Series: Quarter-Finals (24 June); Semi-Finals (8/9 July) July; Final (23 July)
