We were asked in the middle of the main meal if we wanted further portions, so you would definitely not come out hungry from here. Food was top quality. The view from our table took in the whole...

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
