Very enjoyable evening. Friendly and helpful staff. Great value if you prebook online. We enjoyed the racing, barbecue and live music - a good evening out.

Went for the Twilight Racing on 19th June. Opted for a deal ticket that included dinner, a free drink and a free bet. The food was very tasty and the value for what you got was excellent. It was a brilliant night out and I'd highly recommend it.

Had a very enoyable evening with my father and teenage sons, all the facilities were inside one building so if boys wanted chips or anyone wanted a drink or tea it was easy accessed. Great view outside of the course will definitely return

Hi patrick I, Thank you for your review of Limerick Racecourse. We are lucky to have great panoramic views of the surrounding Limerick countryside and the racetrack and the box level is very popular on racedays for that reason. Please do come and visit us again soon. Kind regards Amy Limerick Racecourse More

great day out for all the family. The children really enjoyed the entertainment for example the puppet show and bouncy castle. Food was great and it was good value for money. Everyone enjoyed the day.

My 13 year old grandson really enjoyed the horse races here. We placed bets on 3 different races, didn't win but it was fun trying. Don't forget to bring your binoculars!
