Croke Park – Unique Dublin Conference Venue
Croke Park is one of the world’s most unique and versatile venues for bringing people together to be inspired and entertained. With 110 meetings and events spaces, we can equally cater for a board meeting for 10 or a reception for 2,000. Croke Park is a world-class campus combining best-in-class facilities with more unique attractions and time out options than any other venue. We’re ideally situated in the heart of Dublin, just five minutes from the city centre and 15 minutes from the airport.
For over one hundred years, Croke Park has been home to the Gaelic Athletic Association or GAA, attracting crowds of 82,300 to Ireland’s national games – Hurling and Gaelic Football. The GAA is one of the world’s greatest amateur sporting organisations. Since 1884 the GAA has been building communities on and off the pitch. Every year our hallowed turf showcases epic battles in Hurling and Gaelic Football, transforming the stadium into a cathedral of colour, passion and energy – the perfect stage. At Croke Park Meetings & Events, the GAA is an integral part of who we are and what we stand for. We draw our energy and inspiration from the people and passion that make it all possible.
Croke Park is an iconic landmark in the heart of one of the world’s best connected and friendliest cities. We are only a 15 minute drive from Dublin Airport, a top transatlantic hub. Dublin City Centre is a further 5 minutes from Croke Park. We are also easily accessible from the M50 and the Port Tunnel. We provide 600 free parking spaces – the only Dublin venue that can offer this. The Croke Park, our luxury 4 Star hotel, is located right next door with 232 stunning bedrooms.
Unique Venue Space:
Our success lies in our total flexibility. We have over 5,000 square metres of event space, including eight large suites and over 90 meeting rooms. Working with our on-site catering, AV and entertainment partners, we excel at customising our spaces to meet client’s needs. The versatility of our spaces means that they can be blank canvases or event ready spaces fitted with the latest facilities and technology. We have invested in HD WiFi throughout our meeting and event spaces. The network is available at no additional cost to guests, exhibitors and organisers. Organisers and guests can not only remain connected at all times but also enjoy the fastest venue broadband connectivity and easiest real-time access in the country for up to 27,000 users or 40,000 devices.
Catering is as customisable as our campus and staying true to our focus on Irish, we are proud to support farmers, fishermen and producers from across the island to bring the very best ingredients to your table. Our menus are designed to complement every occasion, accommodate an expanding range of restricted diets and feature emerging superfoods, healthy indulgences and genuine farm to fork practices.
Like the legendary GAA teams and the legions of fans who come here, our Events Team bring a sense of togetherness and creativity to every meeting and event we host. Our world-class campus means we can combine more unique attractions and timeout options than any other venue. You can opt for a pep talk in our GAA dressing rooms or a drinks reception overlooking the pitch. Or what about some blue-sky thinking 17 storeys above the city on the Skyline rooftop tour? Enjoy our access-all-areas tour of the stadium or visit our interactive GAA Museum to test your own hurling and football skills. We also run team-building activities, energy breaks and a roof top abseil to get the heart pumping and the team bonded.
The third largest stadium in Europe, Croke Park is recognised as a trailer blazer in sustainability best practice and was the first stadium in the world to obtain certification to the newest international Environmental Standard ISO 14001:2015 and has also maintained 0% waste to landfill for over three consecutive years.
