Croke Park is situated in a residential area that has limited parking and our neighbours have the right to expect priority on this parking. Please be considerate of local residents when parking and do not park in residential areas. Be mindful that DSPS clamping, and the issuing of on-the-spot parking fines are in operation on local streets during stadium events.
Increased traffic volumes and local road closures before, during and after events cause significant delays in the area, so it is important to plan ahead.
For those who require parking close to the stadium, there are a number of options available along with various park-and-ride facilities and city centre carparks located further away.
