Abseil from the 3rd largest stadium in Europe and raise funds for your charity. Croke Park Abseils.
It’s not all about the Abseil- getting to the Abseil location is all part of the experience. Participants arrive at Croke Park, check in and then we take care of them: following a briefing and gearing everyone takes part in a simulated training abseil before taking the steps to the roof. Now the adrenaline really kicks in as we get onto the roof and enjoy some amazing and unique views over the City.
Participants then make their way to the screen and abseil down into the stadium seating below. After having completed the Croke Park Abseils they return to Level 7 to be met and congratulated by family and friends.
We only require confirmed number 2 weeks in advance of the event- these are the numbers we invoice for.
Anyone 18 years old or over can take part. You need good mobility to reach the start point, see FAQ below for more info.
We recommend you charge a registration fee in the region of €70-€90pp then set a fundraising target of €250+. Many participants will go above and beyond this target but also for those who don’t want to fundraise they can pay the fee themselves.
We provide all equipment, a full briefing on the day and a simulated/practice abseil before heading up onto the roof.
Fitness is not very important but agility/mobility is very important; reaching the start of the abseil requires the descending of 3 short ladders and climbing over a barrier. If a participant has mobility issues they need to speak to us in advance. Anyone who has had recent surgery, is/may be pregnant, has back pain or other medical/mobility issues or are over 65 must seek their GP’s advice before partaking in this event. Participants need to be made aware of these requirements when signing up for the event.
Yes, the limit is 120kg. Participants need to be made aware of this limit when signing up for the event.
In the 10 years we’ve been running this event we’ve only had to postpone it once. Lightning is our biggest problem. Rain and wind is not so much a problem as the abseil is sheltered. We follow on site procedures to stop and close down the abseil for a short period if lightning is seen/forecast.
We set out our fees as above. Croke Park also charge a location hire fee and may insist on the inclusion of catering in your package. You will have to pay for security on the day. This comes in at about €2,500 to €3,000 for a day. It’s a lot of money but you are getting access to the 3rd largest stadium in Europe and it is worth it! You deal directly with Croke Park regarding the location hire.
All you’ll need is staff to meet and greet participants as they arrive. You’ll need to ensure they have signed the relevant waiver (if they’ve not already done so on registering). You may want to have someone responsible for photography on the day for Croke Park Abseils.
Yes, but adventure.ie can not be responsible for them. At Croke Park Abseils there is a viewing area where they can get close to the abseilers. Children must be accompanied at all times.
The only extra on our fees is vat, this will be either 9% or 19%.
You don’t need to have abseiling insurance, we cover that. You will need to have event management insurance which is a normal part of any charity insurance policy.
Our insurance covers participant against our negligence. It doesn’t cover participants against loss/stolen package, cuts, scrapes etc. Nor does it cover participants in the event of an accident when they are not under our supervision or that’s caused by hazards outside of our control
