Monday 10th March 2014: The new Hop-On-Hop-Off bus tour linking Croke Park, Glasnevin Cemetery and the National Botanic Gardens starts today.
The Citysightseeing Dublin bus tour, which already connects some of Dublin’s top attractions, will include these top sporting, sightseeing and historical sites and give visitors the opportunity to take in some true Irish experiences.
This ‘true blue’ route will take visitors on a journey that gives an insight into the struggles and victories that shaped this country encapsulating social, cultural and sporting history, amazing views and landscapes from three of Dublin’s top 10 attractions (Tripadvisor). In this decade of commemorations, these sites are at the forefront in remembering and commemorating great events and people in Irish history.
The new route was launched by Leo Varadkar, Minister for Transport, Tourism & Sports. Commenting at the launch, GAA President Liam O’Neill said “We are delighted to be part of the new Citysightseeing bus tour and to work with Dualways, Glasnevin Trust and the OPW to improve access to our wonderful attractions. Last year more than one in four Irish people visited Croke Park to support their local teams, visit the museum and experience the breath-taking Stadium Tour and Etihad Skyline. The new bus route will facilitate tourists who would like to come for a true Irish experience and get behind the scenes at Croke Park, take in the views from the roof top tour and visit our interactive GAA Museum. We look forward to welcoming them.”
Croke Park is stop 24a on the route and buses run every 30 minutes from O’Connell Street and stops around the city centre. For more details see crokepark.ie/gaa-museum/visit
