If you’re planning a trip to Dublin’s infamous sporting stadium, a hotel near Croke Park is the natural place to stay. To truly embrace the buzz and atmosphere of Ireland’s national stadium, look for a hotel close to the home of Gaelic games for over a hundred years.
As you may expect for a stadium and events centre with a capacity of more than 80,000 at any given time and an annual footfall of around one million visitors, there is an abundance of hotels in and around the Croke Park area, including hotels within steps of the grounds.
A short distance from the city centre and airport, it’s also a handy base for getting in and out of the city when on short trips and for seeing some of the key sights such as the Guinness Storehouse and Jameson Distillery before or after the big match or concert.
For sports fans, a Croke Park hotel is handy for nipping in to the buzzing city centre for to celebrate your side’s victory. If your team is unfortunate to be going home with the ‘wooden spoon’, however, you won’t have too far to go to your hotel to drown your sorrows in a pint of the black stuff.
