The GAA Museum at Croke Park has announced the return of its Shuttle Bus Service for the summer months.

Evolving from the popular introductory service last year, the 2010 Shuttle Bus will include an extended service to the new Glasnevin Museum.

The first shuttle will roll out on April 13th and will run until September with the service taking tourists from the centre of Dublin’s fair city to two landmark venues deeply embedded in Irish history. Starting out from Trinity College, the bus will stop at three ‘pick-ups’ along the way - at Trinity College, Suffolk Street and Parnell Square before reaching Croke Park and then onto the new Glasnevin Museum.

The extension of the shuttle service to Glasnevin will allow tourists and the public greater access to two of Dublin’s “must see” attractions. The Croke Park venue hosts the Stadium Tour and the GAA Museum, both of which are a fantastic celebration of the history and heritage of Ireland’s native sports. Glasnevin Trust Museum located at the famous cemetery site is also host to a fully interactive exhibition highlighting the lives of those buried within the walls of the famous cemetery and historical details of the workings of a Victorian Cemetery.

“Last year the shuttle bus service to Croke Park was a resounding success as it facilitated access for a large number of visitors to one of Ireland’s premier and most celebrated venues. We are delighted to bring back the service for the forthcoming year, whilst also welcoming the extension of the route to the Glasnevin Trust Museum. The premise behind the shuttle bus is again to provide a quick, direct and inexpensive trip to both of these popular venues for tourists and the public alike. We hope the extension will encourage even more people to take advantage of the service this year” said Mark Dorman, GAA Museum Director.

The service from Dublin City Centre to both Croke Park and Glasnevin will run daily from Tuesday until Saturday. There will also be a direct route from the City Centre to Glasnevin running every day of the week.
