Seen many matches but I;ve never been there.
We are staying at a hotel in Blanchardstown
How would we get to Croke Park?

Bus/Taxi to Coolmine Train Station, train into Drumcondra, 5 minute walk down Clonliffe Ave.

Assume it's the hotel at the shopping centre? If so, 39A bus to Navan Road Parkway and train from there to Drumcondra. Short walk to Croke Park after that. Save yourself a taxi journey... costs a fortune these days.

I always just use google maps if I don't know where I am going, if you type in the location you want to go it will tell you the quickest public transport options as well

I would also recommend CityMapper as a good public transport app, covering all different modes, giving you alternatives.

In 2001 they let you walk around yourself along the Cusack sideline after visiting the Museum. I assume nowadays they take you out to the Hogan stand on a stadium tour.
