We booked lunch in the panoramic restaurant and racing for the day. It is a really good idea as you have the table for the day which is great when it gets really crowded downstairs. You can watch the racing from the balcony and the table service is very good

my grown up daughter and I had a most enjoyable day at the races in Limerick on December 28th 2015. Although it was cold and raining we were snug and warm in the Panoramic stand where we enjoyed an excellent lunch - the roast beef was so good and plentiful that we took a few slices home for tea !...

We arrived early and managed to get a table and seats inside, as it was a horribly wet day. The Punter package was great value (entry, racecard, a €5 bet and a drink for €19). We were also able to see racing from Leopardstown on the tv screens. The only drawback (apart from the weather) was the loud music which... More
