Santa Experience at 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 take a stroll pitchside to view the magnificent Croke Park pitch, before stepping into the Elf Dressing Rooms, the Igloo Clubhouse and the North Pole Skills Zone. In this festive fun zone, you can impress with your camogie, hurling and football talents.

Then it will be time to step inside Santa’s very special Croke Park cabin to meet the man himself. You can even take a photo sitting in front of Santa on his team bench and tell him about your predictions for the 2022 All-Ireland Championships!

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

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 and the gift shop and café will be open.

Santa will arrive at Croke Park on Saturday November 27th and the Santa Experience will run on selected dates until Thursday December 23rd. The experience lasts for one hour 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).
