This museum is all about the history and importance of Gaelic sports in Ireland and the role of the Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA) as the stout defender of a proud cultural identity. It helps if you're a sporting enthusiast.

The twice-daily tours (except match days) of the impressive Croke Park stadium are excellent, and well worth the extra cost. Admission to the tour includes a museum visit.

The stadium's other attraction is the Skyline , a guided tour around the stadium roof, with stops at five different viewing platforms that have bird's-eye views of the city. The most thrilling stop is on the platform that extends right out over the pitch.
