GAA Museum Tours

GAA Museum

Set within the 82,300-capacity Croke Park stadium, the GAA Museum is devoted to Gaelic games and the role of the Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA) in Irish life. Exhibits, audiovisual displays, and interactive zones introduce visitors to Gaelic football and hurling, a fast-paced game played with a hurley (stick) and a sliotar (ball).


The Basics

Visitors can join a Croke Park stadium tour, which includes admission to the GAA Museum, or buy a museum-only admission ticket and explore the exhibits at their leisure. 


See legendary players in the Hall of Fame, learn about the role of the GAA in local communities, and see the original Sam Maguire Cup (awarded to the winners of the All-Ireland Senior Football Championship) and the original Liam MacCarthy Cup (awarded to the winners of the All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship). The interactive Games Zone allows visitors to try their hand at the sports themselves. 


Things to Know Before You Go

  • The GAA Museum is a must for sports enthusiasts and anyone with an interest in Irish culture. 
  • There is a café on the stadium grounds. 
  • The museum and stadium are wheelchair accessible. 


How to Get There

The GAA Museum is at the Cusack Stand in Croke Park, a 15-minute walk from Dublin city center. Alternatively, ride the train to Drumcondra station, which is just five minutes away on foot, or take any one of a number of buses from the city center. 


When to Get There 

The GAA museum opens daily year-round. On match days, the museum’s regular opening hours are sometimes altered; most matches take place on weekend days, so go midweek if possible.


Learning About Ireland’s National Games

Traditional Gaelic games are at the center of Irish sporting life. The most popular and most played among them are Gaelic football, hurling, and camogie (women’s hurling). Their origins can be traced back centuries—the mythical Irish warrior Cú Chulainn is said to have carried a hurley and sliotar. To this day, local GAA organizations play a key role in Irish community life, particularly in rural locations.
