Museums & Attractions

Croke Park in Dublin has been at the heart of Irish sporting life for over 100 years and is the headquarters of the Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA), Ireland’s largest sporting organisation.

The GAA Museum celebrates Ireland’s unique national games of hurling and Gaelic football. The museum’s collections and exhibits illustrate the rich history of these national games, highlighting the significant contribution the GAA has made - and continues to make - to Ireland’s cultural, social and sporting heritage.

Explore the GAA Museum with its exhibition galleries that vividly illustrate the story of Gaelic games from ancient times to present day. Featured exhibitions include the original Sam Maguire and Liam MacCarthy Cups, the official GAA Hall of Fame, temporary exhibitions and many other exhibits.

Test your Gaelic football and hurling skills in the interactive games zone – see how fast you can react, check out your passing skills, practice a fingertip save or discover the art of the high catch!

All tours include admission to the GAA Museum.
