Dublin – Santa Experience at Croke Park

"Santa Experience at Croke Park"

The Santa Experience at Croke Park 2022

Santa’s coming Ho Ho Home to Croke Park

The GAA Museum are delighted to announce the return of Santa to Croke Park, the home of Gaelic Games, this year.

A team from the North Pole are setting up a training camp in Croke Park and they’d love you to visit as they prepare for their special journey around the world on Christmas Eve.

On the Santa Experience, you’ll see the Elf Dressing Rooms, the Igloo Clubhouse and the North Pole Skills Zone.

Then it will be time to step inside Santa’s very special Croke Park cabin to meet the man himself. You can take a photo with Santa and tell him about your predictions for the 2023 GAA All-Ireland Championships!

Every child will receive a small GAA-themed gift and photos will also be available to purchase if you wish.

After your visit with Santa, don’t forget to collect a Junior Explorer passport and follow the trail around the museum. Then stop off at Cú Chulainn’s Den write your letter to Santa, get it stamped and post it in our museum post box!

Not only that, every Santa Experience visitor will get a 25% OFF Stadium Tour discount voucher for 2023 as a thank you for visiting Santa and his elves.

Please note that the Santa experience is a group tour, and you will be joined by other people during your visit, but every ticket booking will have a chance to meet Santa for an individual photo. Photos can be purchased separately or you are welcome to take your own pictures. Tickets also include access to the newly refurbished GAA Museum including the interactive games area.

The experience lasts 50 minutes and is wheelchair and buggy accessible. Free parking is available outside the GAA Museum with entry to Croke Park at St Joseph’s Avenue (turn at the Daybreak Shop on the Clonliffe Road).
