Ireland’s GAA Museum, which is celebrating 25 years, continues to be a top visitor attraction, with new awards including 2023 Travellers’ Choice Winner and 2023 Experts’ Choice Award.

The home of all the archives and artefacts of the Gaelic Athletic Association, which are brought to life in a fun and interactive way, the museum is where sporting heroes are honoured and the vibrancy of Irish sport and culture is celebrated.

Featured exhibitions include the original Sam Maguire and Liam McCarthy Cups, the rousing Hall of Fame and a whole floor dedicated to the games as they are today.

There is also an interactive games zone, where you can test your hurling and Gaelic football skills.

As part of the anniversary celebrations, the much-loved Club Wall in front of the museum in the Cusack stand will also be recreated in the coming months. 

The updated wall will highlight the growth and strength of Irish sports in Ireland and overseas. It will incorporate crests of all clubs in gaelic games from Ireland and around the world.

“The original club wall was installed in 2009 as part of the GAA’s 125 celebrations and was warmly received,” said Uachtarán Chumann Lúthchleas Gael Larry McCarthy.   

“No visit to the GAA museum is complete without looking up our own club crest and it represents an important link between Croke Park and every unit, no matter where they are active around the globe.”

The GAA Museum is free to visit for anyone who books tickets for the Croke Park Stadium Tour, Skyline Tour, Halloween event or Teidi Tour.
