Fame for Croke Park Visitor Attractions
The visitor attractions at Croke Park – the GAA Museum, Croke Park Stadium Tour and the Ericsson Skyline Tour - have achieved the much coveted TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence ‘Hall of Fame’ Award.
This impressive accolade is only given to attractions that consistently achieve great traveller reviews and earn a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence for an incredible five years in a row. It is the icing on the cake for an incredible year at the GAA Museum, which also celebrates its 20th anniversary
this year with a special programme of events
Croke Park has been at the heart of Irish sport and culture for over 100 years. The iconic stadium and visitor experiences, famed as the headquarters of the GAA where All-Ireland dreams are played out in dramatic fashion, are already major Irish visitor attractions and are listed in the top 10 things to see and do in Dublin on TripAdvisor.
Reviews from Irish and international visitors heap praise on the attractions for being so much more that an insight into our unique national games. The tours are credited for being an immersive Irish cultural experience that gets to the very heart of Irish history, sport and culture. Many international visitors say that it gave them a real understanding of who we are as a people and the Irish way of life. The warm and vivid storytelling of the tour guides is always a highlight for visitors.
Commenting, Niamh McCoy, Director of the GAA Museum said, “Being awarded the ‘Hall of Fame’ award is a true source of pride for our team and I would like to particularly thank our world-class Tour Guides whose enthralling storytelling and incredible passion leave visitors hanging on every word. I would also like to sincerely thank everyone who took the time to write a review. We pride ourselves on the unique experience we offer and are always striving to broaden our appeal and reach new levels of excellence, so we plan on retaining this award for years to come.”
Joining an elite group of ‘Hall of Fame’ recipients dotted across the globe, who have continually delivered a superior quality customer experience, is expected to drive even more domestic and international visitors to the iconic attraction this year.
