Santa Experience at Croke Park!
Santa’s coming Ho Ho Home to Croke Park
The GAA Museum are delighted to announce the return of Santa to Croke Park, the home of Gaelic Games, this year.
A team from the North Pole are setting up a training camp in Croke Park and they’d love you to visit, as they prepare for their special journey around the world, on Christmas Eve.
During the Santa Experience, you will join the Ice Patrol team, for an exclusive peek inside the North Pole GAA Dressing Rooms, before entering their super Skills Zone, where you can play a 'cool' selection of fun, festive games.
Then it will be time to step into Santa's very special Croke Park cabin to meet the man himself. You can take a photo with Santa and tell him about your predictions for the 2024 GAA All-Ireland Championship!
Every child will receive a small GAA-themed gift and photos will also be available to purchase if you wish.
Tickets include access to the GAA Museum. When you are in the musuem, make sure to collect our GAA Museum Junior Explorer passport and follow the North Pole GAA trail - find the answers to the clues that our mascot Cluasóg has left throughout the museum and receive a prize for your excellent efforts.
You can also call into Cú Chulainn's Den, where you can write your letter to Santa and post it in our museum box. Plus, you will have an opportunity to check out the interactive area in the museum. For the last two time slots on each day, please visit the museum in advance of the Santa Experience - see FAQ's for more info.
During the Santa Experience, you will be joined by other people, but every ticket booking will have a chance to meet Santa for an individual photo. Photos can be purchased separately, or you are welcome to take your own pictures.
Santa will arrive at Croke Park on Saturday November 18th and the Santa Experience will run on selected dates until Friday December 22nd. The experience lasts 50 minutes and is wheelchair and buggy accessible. Free parking is available outside the GAA Museum, which is located on the Cusack side of Croke Park.
It is recommended that you check the FAQ section and Terms and Conditions before making your booking.
