Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: Ericsson Skyline Tour is a truly memorable experience and a completely new and unique way to learn more about one of Europe's most vibrant capital cities. Accompanied by an experienced tour guide, visitors will ascent to a walkway 44 metres above the ground on a suspended walkway on top of Europe's 3rd largest stadium to view the landscape of the Irish capital. Audio guides are included in your admission and they are available in Irish/English/French/German/Spanish/Italian. A visit to the recently refurbished GAA Museum is also included in your ticket. The museum celebrates Ireland's national games of hurling and Gaelic football. Test your own skills in the specially designed interactive zone. Skyline is open daily throughout the summer months, and early tours on match days.Croke Park is now part of the City Sightseeing Hop On Hop Off (red buses) bus tour, so getting to Croke Park couldn't be easier!

“Skyline Tour a must for any visitors to Dublin”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

I accidentally came across this tour when planning our latest trip to Dublin. Not familiar with GAA sports I was not sure if a stadium tour was something my 71 year old mom would want to include on our agenda. And then I found the footage on the Skyline Tour and started to promote the idea. She was game for giving it a try AND WE ARE BOTH SO GLAD WE DID! Wow, what a unique experience - a great persepctive of the stadium, a bird's eye view of the city, and the tour guides are so knowledgable. We learned so much about the city and GAA sports. It was a great day. As for the height... Once on the walkway I barely noticed it. Everyone should add this to their agenda.

“Best attraction in Dublin”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

The tour is great and offers the best views of the city. The tour guide was fantastic and you are assisted by an informative audio guide. The tour alse took us pitchsideat croke park. The overhang is not for the faint hearted though!

“Croke Park- go hiontach.”
Reviewed December 24, 2012

This is a really novel and interesting tour to do in Dublin. Being a Gaelic Games fanatic it gave me great pleasure to see the stadium from another vantage point. However you dont have to have any interest in sport to enjoy this.The tour lasts about 2 hours and you have ample time to look out into Dublin and its surroundings. I went on a fine day and it was really enjoyable. It cost 25 euro which also included entry to the Croke Park Museum. This, I think, represents excellent value. The museum is also superb. If I were going to Dublin this is one of the first things I would do. It's a great chilled out way to spend an afternoon, in a place so important to the Irish people.

“A must do when in Dublin”
Reviewed November 26, 2012

We visited the Skyline Walk 13 Nov 2012 and found it fascinating. Our guides, John and JJ, were very informative and welcoming in true Irish fashion. Our suggestion would be to do the tour tirst up in Dublin. The views are not only breathtaking but give you a good grasp of the layout of the city and help you to plan your sightseeing. As the walkway is 44m above the ground you'll probably need another layer of clothing up there. You feel completely safe as you're harnessed and attached to a runner wire similar to the (Sydney) Harbour Bridge Climb. At €25 each we found it great value, especially compared to previously mentioned Bridge Climb although the views aren't as spectacular. The path that projects over the playing surface gets the adrenalin pumping. Even with little knowledge of the games played here you can't help but feel something when you take in the bird's eye view of this magnificent stadium. Our limited knowledge didn't preclude us from enjoying the GAA museum which is included in the ticket price and located in the Cusack Stand. Overall a terrific experience, not to be missed at any timeof your stay in Dublin

“Enjoyable experience in good weather”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

I visited Croke Park in early September on a warm sunny day. Guide was good. No reason to worry about fear of heights (for most people) as most of the walk is located near the centre of the roof and far away from the edge. At one corner only the walk projects very slightly over the pitch but this particular section can be skipped by those of nervous disposition. Good view all around Dublin; major landmarks are identified on display panels. Very enjoyable walk on a good day but probably not so good when the weather is wet, cold or windy. After the Skyline walk the tour of the GAA museum was more interesting than I expected (not being a huge GAA fan) - well worth spending an hour or two there also.
