    Very enjoyable tour
    I did the GAA Stadium tour today. Our guide was a lovely lady called Annette. It really was a great experience. Annette was very knowledgeable and had a great knack of encouraging questions and banter among our group. She showed us all the backstage areas of the stadium - dressing rooms, tunnels, press area etc. It gave a lovely insight into a big match day from the players perspective.

    Very educational and fun
    I had very little knowledge of Gaelic sports. This tour and the museum were a wonderful surprise. The tour was awesome. our young guide was very polished and very knowledgeable. We got to see a lot of behind the scenes parts of the stadium, including the locker room. We coved the entire stadium from field level to the press area. The museum is very well done. An educational video is a must as it explained the history of Bloody Sunday which was right in this stadium. The interactive section was fun. I got to try hitting the ball. A test of my reaction time was failed miserably. I highly recommend this tour and the museum, even if you know nothing about these sports.

    Must see Gaelic football when in Ireland
    Fortunate to be in Dublin when the semi finals were being played and get last minute tickets to 2 games for 40 euro. The atmosphere was great and the game fast and furious. Unlike the similar game played in Australia, the Irish boys still enjoy a good biff on .

    Our guide Ger "with a G" was first class
    Took the Croke Park Stadium Tour yesterday. Our guide Ger "with a G" was first class, informative and entertaining. The tour is well worth the cost and access to areas of the stadium is very impressive. The Museum is well laid out and easy to navigate, with lots of items of interest to both young and old. I will recommend it to anyone visiting Dublin, even you you know little or nothing about the GAA and Gaelic games the stadium and the GAA are part of the Irish social fabric . I will be back

    We did a round trip from Cork for this tour. It was totally worth it. Absolutely fantastic. Booked our tour for 2pm and didn't leave until 5.30 ( pretty much last to leave) and honestly we could have stayed for another hour if we were left. Tour was awesome I had a six year old and 15 year old with me and both really enjoyed the tour. Very easy to get to also. We parked at heuston Station hopped on luas as far as busarus and walked up from there. It was lovely to be there also day before all ireland. Plenty of activity, we got to see all rge work that goes on in the background. Only down fall really is the Museum defo could do with some housekeeping, missing bulbs, exhibits not working or having faults. Stull in fairness did not take from the overall experience. It was a fantastic day out.

    Great fun for young kids
    Did the Teidi Tour of Croke Park and GAA museum, last week, 2 adults 2 kids ages 7 and 9. Very enjoyable experience, the tour was targeted very much to the children and involved them at every opportunity. Our tour guide Maeve was easy going, approachable and gave the kids plenty of time to ask questions as we went through the tour. The tour started with the kids picking and stuffing their teddy bears, we had Michael taking the kids through this. He too was very pleasant and had a great rapport with the kids on the tour who were all delighted with the finished products. The tour lasted about 2 hours at the end there is a scavenger hunt where the kids get sheets to answer questions as we go through the museum. It's a nice idea and it keeps them involved right until the end. For the last activity on the tour, the kids play an interactive game in the museum, like running on the spot. We thought there would be a small prize for the winner but instead they each got a small present when the tour ended. All in all good value, good fun and the kids really enjoyed it and can't wait to go back, so well done to all involved.

    A must do for sports fans.
    Commenced with the Skyline Tour (just myself and my wife with Liam, our guide) then proceeded with the museum at our pace. Liam gave a good insight of the town of Dublin plus the very tragic Bloody Sunday incident of 21 Nov 1920. This stadium is awesome especially from a height of 44 metres.

Had a tour with Jess today, all I can say is what a wonderful experience and great craic. For someone so you with that level of expertise and knowledge (besides the odd mayo v Dublin dig🤣) from beginning to the end it was a fantastic tour. All staff members were mega friendly and accommodating. Great value for the experience. Jess is made for the job, I’ll definitely recommend to everyone!!

The tour with the guide was good. Guide was very informed and enthusiastic. If I were a non native english speaking tourist however I would have found the pace at which she was speaking very difficult to understand. But she made up for it with enthusiasm.

My kids were only interested in the interactive section. However several of the exhibitions were broken. Maybe three of the ten interactive activities were working.

In the reflexes test the lights didn't work, some buttons were broken and it didnt record the score.
The quiz game had no headband which was a requirement, the football hand pass practice had no ball, the exhibition to test your ability and reflexes to jump to catch a ball had several of the buttons broken and didnt record.
Basically the exhibition to see how high you could jump, how many knee raises you could do in a certain amount of time and the hurling target practice were the only ones left working of all we tried. Football target also not recording scores. Was disappointing. Would not return unless these were fixed.

The screens in the museum also had many issues. Videos were from 2015 all ireland. All in all, was a disappointing experience for the family on our mid term day out.

A lot of updating is required. Everything a bit tired and dated

Very good tour. Only criticism was that the tour guide referred to the President of Ireland as a "leprechaun" while showing us where he sits in the stadium during matches.

As an irish man, this felt disrespectful given the GAAs roots.

Amazing insight and views into croke parks behind the scenes and a great chance to view the pitch and stadia stands when empty, our tour guide ciaran seemed nervous and stumbled on a lot of his words but was always able to give an answer to all questions and so very helpful and informative (I hope he finds the answer to the estimated time of emergency evacuation lol) the museum was so interesting and understandable and the interactive games were great.

I would really recommend the tour and visit to the museum even if you don’t know anything about Gaelic sports. The tour was really enjoyable and informative, our guide Seamus was exceptional. He was very knowledgable and had a great manner, encouraging questions and making it relatable. We were visiting from Scotland and can wholeheartedly say Seamus made this a special tour. He covered the whole of the stadium from the changing rooms, press areas, hospitality to the famous GAA Irish commentator to Bloody Sunday. Fantastic tour!! THANK YOU Seamus!
The time we spent in the museum was also good fun as well as being informative there are many interactive sessions, kicking balls and testing skills with bat. All good fun and well worth a visit!!! Make sure you know the right entrance as you cannot access from all stands.
