The GAA Museum and Croke Park visitor attractions reopened at the start of July.
With the GAA All-Ireland Senior Championships postponed until October, this will be people’s only chance to visit Croke Park this summer, so there’s never been a better time to explore the heart of the GAA.
Former Captain of the Carlow Senior Football team Paul Cashin is Front of House Manager at the GAA Museum.
Of you’ve never been on the Stadium Tour, after a screening of ‘September Days’ film, you will be guided behind-the-scenes to visit the team dressing rooms and warm-up area, before running pitch side, where you will take a seat in the Cusack stand to learn about the country’s most famous field, it’s unique history and the match day experience.
For the first time, you can also sit on the bench where the teams have their official photos taken on All-Ireland Final Day.
Another ‘high’light is the Skyline Tour which is 17 storeys above the pitch onto the roof of Croke Park.
After both tours, you will have a chance to learn about GAA legends, past and present and explore the collections and exhibitions and is your chance to see the original Sam Maguire and Liam MacCarthy Cups up close and personal.
For safety reasons the number of people per tour will be limited. In July, the tours are running at 25% capacity.
