4 of us went racing having purchased the hospitality package. We have done this many times at both Limeick and elsewhere. It was not very busy at the course - probably because the following day was mother's day and that was well sold- Ireland were also involved in a crucial rugby match! Th staff were very nice ; efficient and... More
