Great food, beer, gambling etc. Well worth a visit here, though make sure you set a budget, too easy to spend (lose) money here!

Like so many racecourses this one has yet to find a way to attract the large crowds needed to make it a memorable venue. The food is vastly overpriced for the quality. Supermacs does well as a result. A four day festival is simply too much for the numbers attending.

It not as commercialized as in the US. You will find horse racing all over Ireland in small venues. You should consider experiencing the... More
