Ericsson Skyline tour

THE HIGH POINT

Are you ready for a 17-storey high? Then bring your adventurous spirit (and your camera!) to Croke Park’s Skyline.

Located right in the heart of the city, this thrilling rooftop walkway is actually Dublin’s highest open-viewing platform and offers breathtaking panoramic views of Ireland’s vibrant capital from the mountains to the sea. 

This Dublin City tour highlights all of the capital’s main landmarks while giving you an insight into its heartfelt history, told in a uniquely charming way by the charismatic Tour Guides. Then of course there’s the sporting highlight – the incredible view from the platform that’s suspended over the Croke Park pitch itself. 

Multilingual audio guides are available on request to complement the live tour (available in English, Irish, French, German, Spanish and Italian).

The Ericsson Skyline tour viewing points

The first stop gives visitors a chance to view a number of Dublin’s most famous sites including Glasnevin Cemetery, the National Botanic Gardens, the Royal Canal, Holy Cross College and the Archbishop's Palace.
 
Through their personal audio guides visitors can learn more about some of Ireland’s most influential citizens who are laid to rest in Glasnevin including Daniel O’Connell, Charles Stewart Parnell, Michael Collins and Eamon De Valera as well as Irish entertainment greats such as Dermot Morgan, Brendan Behan, Luke Kelly and Stephen Gately. There’s also a chance to discover the importance of the beautiful Botanic Gardens and Drumcondra's ‘Holy Land’.
Points of interest here include Kilmainham Gaol, the Phoenix Park, Guinness Storehouse and the Old Jameson Distillery. Kilmainham is one of the largest unoccupied gaols in Europe and has housed a number of famous prisoners including many of the leaders in the struggle for Irish independence.
 
The Phoenix Park is one of the largest enclosed recreational spaces in Europe and famous sites in the park include Dublin Zoo and Áras an Uachtaráin – home to the President of Ireland. Visitors interested in brewing and distilling can also gain an insight into two of Dublin’s most popular visitor attractions – the Guinness Storehouse and the Old Jameson Distillery.
This stop includes views of the Dublin Mountains as well as details about Dublin Castle, the Chester Beatty Library, Trinity College, the Spire, the GPO and two of the city’s most famous religious sites – St Patrick’s Cathedral and Christchurch Cathedral. Trinity College is the oldest university in Ireland and home to the famous Book of Kells, while the General Post Office (GPO) is one of the most recognisable buildings in the city centre.
 
Today the 120 metre tall Spire of Dublin is located just opposite the GPO. Find out more about the history of Dublin’s cathedrals - St Patrick’s and Christchurch. Headquarters of British Rule during the War of Independence, Dublin Castle is a popular tourist attraction and the Chester Beatty Library is located within its grounds.
From here visitors will see the famous Sugarloaf Mountain (so called because it resembles a pile of sugar!), Dun Laoghaire Harbour, the Aviva Stadium and the North and South Bull Walls.
 
There will also be a chance to learn about the Jeanie Johnston Tall Ship docked on Dublin’s quays - the only ship bringing people across the Atlantic during the Great Potato Famine to have no loss of life on board.
Take a break from views beyond Croke Park to enjoy a birdseye view down over the immaculate pitch surface. Certain to get the heart rate increasing, this particular view is not for the faint of heart! Bravery will be rewarded though, as you take in the scale of the stadium and the dizzying height down over the Level 3 seats –with more views of Clonliff College and the suburbs to the north over the Nally & Dineen Hill 16 terraces.
The final stop on the Ericsson Skyline tour gives visitors the chance to discover more about modern Dublin and includes information on the Dublin Docklands, the iconic Poolbeg Chimneys, the Poolbeg Lighthouse and the International Financial Services Centre (IFSC).
 
The Dublin Docklands has been the focus of much redevelopment in recent years and visitors can learn about the Custom House here and the Financial Services hub in Ireland.  Other famous sites here include the Samuel Beckett Bridge, the Bord Gais Energy Theatre and the Convention Centre Dublin.
