Conference Social Evening - Croke Park Stadium
Our vision for The Conference Social Evening is to offer attendees a unique and truly authentic Irish experience. When reviewing potential venues for this evening, we felt no venue would encapsulate this vision more than Croke Park.
For over 100 years, Croke Park has been the headquarters of the Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA). Our national games of Gaelic Football, Hurling and Camogie are played in this iconic 82,000 seater stadium throughout the year. There are a limited number of stadiums in the world that can match this capacity but what makes Croke Park unique is that it is the home of our national games, games played in front of 82,000 passionate fans, not by highly paid professional athletes, but by amateurs, participating for the love of the game, for their families, their communities and their counties.
With over 2,500 clubs all around Ireland and the world, the GAA is a beacon for bringing people together. No other movement quite captures the spirit of Ireland like the GAA and no other venue can showcase this quite as much as Croke Park. This truly unique venue will add great meaning and significance to the Conference Social Evening where we hope to be that beacon for bringing our community together in Dublin.
The GAA Museum is one of Ireland’s leading tourist attractions and we have included a complimentary tour of the museum for all attendees. Equally, for delegates arriving early for the Congress, there may be an opportunity to attend a game (depending on the fixture schedule) in the days leading up to the Congress. It would be an experience not to be missed!
