It would cost you €14.50 for breathtaking views from the Empire State Building in New York and €23.50 for a ramble around the Sky Walk in the Grand Canyon, so how much would you pay for a view of Fairview Park in Dublin? The answer, according to the GAA, is between €50 and €100, the price they will charge next year to take a walk around Croke Park's new rooftop garden.
A walkway is currently under construction around the entire roof of the stadium, and it is anticipated that the project will be complete in January 2011. Construction of the new viewing points will cost €300,000.
Croke Park stadium director Peter McKenna said the new attraction was being modelled on internationally recognised landmarks.
"We are modelling it on the London Eye or Sydney Bridge Walk – it will be great to have and will give very good views of the GPO and O'Connell Street, and then of course of the Wicklow mountains as well."
He said the preparations were well underway. "We are in the process of laying down trackway, and induction and training courses are also being planned at the moment."
But Consumers Association of Ireland (CAI) chief Dermot Jewell hit out at the prices, saying they were "unaffordable and illogical."
"One important element is to remember that if we are going to have a facility like this that it would need to be attractive to tourists. If we overprice ourselves, it is going to do more damage for us from a tourism perspective. When it comes to value for money, it really is the time we learned our lesson for things like this. This price is unaffordable."
Jewell urged Croke Park to re-think its pricing plans and revise them to a lower rate.
"There are a few attractions in Dublin like this so if they go ahead with these prices they will be limiting the number of people coming to get the tour.
"It joins the ranks of what is commonly called crazy money. They might need to re-think for the sake of Irish people and for tourists."
The tours are expected to take about an hour, and will be added to a number of tours the stadium already operates.
