Cuisle Croke Park

                      

"It's a brilliant idea to have a tourist attraction around Hurling. The game is a national treasure and a truly distinctive part of our Irishness.  Croke Park is a wonderful imposing venue for the show and the standard of food and hospitality was excellent".

Cuisle Croke Park is an entertainment spectacle capturing the pulse, passion and soul of Gaelic games and the GAA (Gaelic Athletic Association) through story, music and dance. Your taste buds will be tantalised by the very best of Irish produce and you will be taken on a journey with unique Irish musical talent and tales of great events.

When you enter Croke Park, you are not stepping into a story that lies dusty on a shelf waiting to be read. You are entering the action of a living story; an electric arena that breaths fire and passion, powerfully staging the drama of dreams where ordinary men and women strive to be champions for club and county. Revered by their congregation, they battle to lift the chalice of victory, the holy grail of the GAA in this, the great Cathedral of Sport.
