Hotel Croke Park
Croke Park Stadium:
Croke Park Stadium Dublin is located just 20 minutes by bus from the Pembroke Townhouse on Ballsbridge.
Croke Park Stadium is the home of Gaelic Games and headquarters of the Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA). With a capacity for 82,300 people, Croke Park has been at the heart of Irish sporting life for over a hundred years.
An inspirational venue not only for GAA supporters and players but also for spectacular performances which include:
- Muhammad Ali who fought here in 1972
- U2, Robbie Williams, and The Police
- The opening and closing ceremonies of the 2003 Special Olympics World Summer Games
History was made in 2007 when the home of Gaelic Games hosted international rugby and soccer fixtures from the RBS 6 Nations campaign and the Euro 2008 Qualifying campaign.
With a prime location in central Dublin and a tradition that’s steeped in history, Croke Park stadium holds a special place in the hearts of the people of Ireland. For event planners and conference delegates, the high spec facilities, lavish food and drink, and friendly Irish service make for a memorable event.
