Unless you’re Irish, you’ve probably never seen a Gaelic football or hurling match (GAA). They are two of the country's favourite sports, so there's no more authentically Irish experience than to watch a game at Croke Park. The iconic Dublin stadium boasts over 100 years of history. If your visit doesn't coincide with a sporting fixture, you can also take a tour of the stadium and have a look round the GAA Museum.
