Discover the heart of who we are
The GAA (Gaelic Athletic Association) is Ireland’s largest sporting organisation. It represents our unique national games of hurling and Gaelic football and is celebrated as one of the world’s greatest amateur sporting associations.
The GAA is at the heart of every community in Ireland and it’s fair to say that there are no other sports in the world more intertwined with a country’s identity, history and culture. The GAA is in our DNA. It’s what we love. It’s what we do. If you really want to get under the skin of the Irish, a visit to Croke Park is a must.

Everything and everyone is brimming with pride, including our renowned Tour Guides who’ll have you hanging on every word. The GAA Museum & Tours are the perfect way to truly immerse yourself in Irish culture – so don’t be surprised if you leave a little bit of your own heart behind in Croke Park!

Croke Park Stadium Tour
The Backstage Pass
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!
