A Year in the life of The Croke Park
A year of celebration
It’s been an incredible year for The Croke Park (how could it not be, with Beyonce performing just across the road!) With amazing gigs and matches in Croke Park, launches within the hotel, incredible performances from the team and some accolades along the way, there’s plenty to celebrate.
We’re rounded up some pictures from the past year that show a glimpse of what has been achieved.
May: Launch of new Bistro and cocktails menu
The new menu featured some of the old classics, but also introduced some new favourites to the options available.

December: Beginning of terrace renovations and preparation for Christmas
There’s a big overhaul of the terrace taking place at the moment, and the new space will look glorious when the weather warms up in the spring. But until then, the decorations are up and festivity is the name of the game in The Croke Park.
