Croke Park in Dublin has been headquarters of the GAA since 1913 and named after the first patron of the GAA, Archbishop Thomas William Croke. The stadium redeveloped in the late 90s and now seats 82,300 making it the fourth largest stadium in Europe.
The main GAA fixtures of the year are the All Ireland football final and the All Ireland hurling final and they both take place in September of each year. Other GAA matches and championships also run throughout the year, so there is frequent opportunity to see these traditional Irish sports live in action.
Academy Plaza is delighted to offer Dublin visitors great rates so they are within walking distance of Croke Park and it’s an electric atmosphere on match days.
