Local Attractions

Croke Park

Historical Landmark
10 minutes away
As the home of Ireland's largest sporting and cultural organisation, the Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA) - Croke Park has played host to iconic moments in Irish sport & history and to major cultural and international events. For well over a century, the Jones Road ground has been headquarters of the GAA. Every September, the Association's two annual marquee events - the GAA All-Ireland Football and Hurling Championship Finals – attract a capacity 82,300 fans, to witness the pinnacle of Gaelic games action - in this world-renowned cathedral of sport. More about Croke Park Stadium Dedication, Skill & Commitment The stadium symbolises what can be achieved when a cohesive volunteer force, work towards a common goal. Rooted not just in the community around the stadium, Croke Park on match day represents a culmination of months and even years of hard work, dedication and commitment to local life and sport for over 2,200 clubs in all 32 counties of Ireland. The colour, passion and atmosphere that engulfs the stadium over the summer months is only matched by the dedication, skill and athleticism of players on the pitch. This is all the more impressive, as the GAA has remained an amateur association since its foundation. This volunteer ethos, which remains one of the most important aspects of the GAA, is carried throughout the stadium with teams of dedicated volunteers operating on match days and during special events to help ensure the safety and enjoyment of all patrons.

The National Botanic Gardens of Ireland are an oasis of calm and beauty, and entry is free. A premier scientific institution, the gardens contain important collections of plant species and cultivars from all over the world. The National Botanic Gardens in Dublin are located in Glasnevin, just three kilometres from Dublin City Centre, and are famous for the exquisitely restored historic glasshouses. The National Botanic Gardens in Wicklow are located in Kilmacurragh, where the milder climate, higher rainfall, and deeper, acidic soils of this historic Wicklow garden, provide a counterpoint to the collections at Glasnevin. The two gardens have been closely associated since 1854. The National Botanic Gardens of Ireland are operated and managed by the Office of Public Works. Open Daily The National Botanic Gardens are open every day in both Glasnevin and Kilmacurragh, and

Experience Gaelic Games

10 minutes away
The program employs the skills of Gaelic Games and a number of other activities to promote – Team-building Competitiveness Leadership Initiative Personal rapport among work colleagues Your employees’ day will involve basic training and participation in traditional Gaelic games including Hurling and Gaelic Football. Depending on your specific needs, the day can be built around a more dynamic corporate team enhancing session that would include a strong competitive and performance-driven element such as a ‘Poc Fada’ challenge, the ‘Design a Jersey’ competition, which encourages creativity or the ‘Pass the Sliothar’ which is centred around teamwork and concentration. There is a broad range of these activities available from which you can choose, depending on your preferences. Alternatively, along with learning Gaelic Games skills, your team-building experience can incorporate a lighter element such as an Irish Dance session, which also requires a lot of teamwork but is enormous fun! Whatever your specific corporate needs we can build a program to suit your company and you and your employees will have a day they’ll remember – and one they’ll thank you for.
