After featuring the Millenium Stadium in Cardiff into our Welsh edition of the Top 100 Attractions range of books it was only right and proper to include Croke Park Stadium into the Dublin City & Region chapter of this all Ireland edition. That leads me nicely onto the stadium tours & museum here at Croke Park. Out of Ireland very little is known about the sport of Gaelic Football or the other very popular Irish sport of Hurling, and so, a trip to the home of these two magnificent sports is most certainly a must. I found the tour to be really good value for money and after speaking to a few people on the tour I went on, I think it's hard not to become a fan of either sport.

Croke Park Stadium, Dublin has been at the heart of Irish sporting life for over 100 years and is the Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA) headquarters, Ireland's largest sporting organisation. Visiting Croke Park and the GAA Museum is a great way to discover more about Ireland's unique national games and the fastest field games in the world - hurling and Gaelic football - in a fun and enjoyable way!
Walk in the footsteps of legends as you visit the team dressing rooms before going pitchside via the players' tunnel and taking a seat in the VIP area. Enjoy panoramic views from the top tier of the stand - 30 meters above the famous pitch.

The museum's exhibitions vividly illustrate the history and development of Gaelic games through the years.
