Our stay at The Croke Park Hotel

A few weeks ago, my family & I headed across the country to Dublin for a match in Croke Park stadium. Croke Park holds over 82,000 people & is the home for Gaelic sports. On match day, it’s super busy with a vibrant & exciting atmosphere.

It was the first time our two youngest have been to Croke Park so it was an exciting day for us all! We decided to make a weekend of it so we could relax & enjoy the experience rather than rushing to & from the stadium.

We made our reservation at The Croke Park Hotel which is literally right across the street from Croke Park stadium. It doesn’t get more convenient than that.

We arrived at the hotel the day before the match. There’s a carpark at the back of the hotel with an elevator up to reception level. To go above reception level you need to swipe your room key which keeps the room levels free from those not staying in the hotel.

Check in was smooth & easy. The lady at reception gave us warm towels which we really enjoyed. They had a lovely citrus smell on them. Then it was off to our rooms.
