Create magical memories with the stunning views on the top of Ireland’s national sports stadium.
Those looking for the perfect Insta-moment of a winter trip to Dublin should head to the famous Croke Park, where Ericsson Skyline Dusk Tours can offer a thrilling evening of spectacular twinkling sights.
The popular tours return to the roof of the iconic Croke Park Stadium from 21 November, running every Thursday to Sunday until 2 February. Rising an incredible 17 storeys above the pitch, there is no better way to take in the glittering Dublin skyline as it moves from twilight to darkness.
Aside from the amazing panoramic views from the city’s highest open-viewing platform, ‘sky-walkers’ will also gain interesting insights into all of the city’s celebrated landmarks, not to mention the architecture and design of the national sporting stadium itself.
Croker’, as it is known locally, with a capacity for 82,000, is the fourth largest sports stadium in Europe. As the home of Gaelic games and the GAA – the Gaelic Athletic Association – in Ireland, the electrifying atmosphere in the stadium during a hurling or Gaelic football match is renowned in world sport.
Informative and fun guides will treat Skyline Dusk Tour guests to tales from Dublin’s rich history and tell some local winter stories. There will be plenty of fantastic photo opportunities too, making it an incredible experience for Insta-lovers.
Tour-goers also get complimentary access to the GAA Museum in the stadium, which vividly illustrates the story of Gaelic games from ancient times to the present day.
Like no other sporting museum, it not only celebrates Ireland’s national games, but brilliantly brings to life how the GAA has and continues to contribute to the cultural, social and sporting heritage of the Irish nation.
It’s the perfect chance to immerse yourself in the spine-tingling and completely unique history, personalities and distinctiveness of Ireland’s sporting identity.
When you’re done exploring, you can get a taste of the action in the popular Interactive Games Zone, where you can test your hurling and Gaelic football skills.
The Skyline Dusk Tours ticket price includes a complimentary hot drink or cocktail in the Sideline bistro and bar in the Croke Park Hotel, two minutes away. Relax here after seeing the sights.
Tickets are available online at crokepark.ie, and booking is essential as these limited-edition tours usually sell like hot cakes.
Don’t forget to bring your camera and wrap up warmly.
