Each GAA Museum Teidí Tour starts with a workshop in Cú Chulainn’s Den where each child will get to;

  • Select their bear fur
  • Stuff their bear
  • Find a bear heart
  • Give their new furry friend a name
  • Dress them in their very own GAA Museum bear training kit
  • Get a ‘bear-th’ cert!

After that, it’s time to get exploring as families and teddies will head off on a family friendly tour of Croke Park stadium, including a visit to the dressing rooms and the chance to walk pitch-side. Don’t forget to snap photos of your new teddy exploring the stadium!
