The home of Irish sport, Croke Park, is an unmissable attraction if you're planning a city break in Dublin. Located approximately 20 minutes by taxi from The Morgan Hotel, Croke Park is steeped in history and is one of the biggest sporting and entertainment venues in the country
If you're attending a concert, conference, or a match in Croke Park and are travelling up for the event, The Morgan Hotel is ideally located in Dublin city centre. Walking to the historic stadium from the hotel will only take 25 minutes, and there are a number of buses also available from Westmoreland Street and O'Connell Street, which will bring you directly to Croke Park. We do advise, if you are attending a match or concert, to give yourself adequate time as a large volume of people will take the streets and may cause delays.
