About
Nothing beats the flutter of excitement when you place your bet; the rush of adrenalin as you see your dog sprinting from the traps; or the sheer exhilaration of watching your dog race across the finish line in pole position. You really need to experience it for yourself, as words only fail to do it justice. Suffice to say, the adrenaline rush whether trackside or at your table, is second to none. If quality counts down on the track, it counts just as much inside and throughout the stadium. Exciting as the racing is, we understand that people should have more than one reason to come to 'The Dogs'. That's why we have spent the last few years perfecting the social side of things and Drumbo Park offers plenty of opportunity to dine and unwind with friends, while enjoying the electric atmosphere of a race night. So whether you are on a large work outing, with a group of friends or simply enjoying a night out - you can really make a night of it. Of course, you don't want to miss anything, and you won't.Wherever you go, wherever you sit to eat or have a drink, you can watch all the live racing action on large plasma screens. You can even watch live satellite- linked races from other great stadia throughout the country every night. Your comfort is key for an enjoyable night out - so with our well informed tote staff taking bets right at your table and a panoramic view over the track, the only reason to leave your seat is to jump for joy as your dog comes in for the win.

Perfect 21st birthday party:
A party of 28 of us went for my sons 21st birthday: family and friends. We were really impressed at the lengths Drumbo went to to ensure social distance measures were in place, we felt really safe- tables of 6, orders per table and fantastic seats.
There is a qr code at each table to order drinks which is great as well as bar staff who take orders from each table. Food was fantastic, really lovely. We sponsored a race for our son and he was called to the track to present the winner with a trophy, with a photographer taking his picture, a great touch. JP and his team looked after us all night and a special shout out to Sean who ensured our food orders were spot on, nothing was a bother especially with big numbers. We had a fantastic night, lots of great memories made.
Why think of going anywhere else especially places that only offer a two hour slot. It was a great nights entertainment from we arrived right to the last race - well done Drumbo, we definitely will be back. Top class!

We went to Drumbo Park to celebrate my son's 18th birthday. There were 19 of us there, a mixture of ages, on 29th February 2020, and had booked tables in the Granstand Restaurant on the first floor. The booking process was easy, and a follow up call the day before we were due to attend ensured all our requirements could and would be met. The selection of food and drinks were great and reasonably priced too. All staff were very friendly and efficient. The place was buzzing and surprisingly busy on such a horrible evening. Storm Jorge was in full flow! A very special mention to young Courtney, the Tote betting assistant. She was great, and very good in her role. She talked through the betting process with those who hadn't been before, and was quick to both take bets and pay out.
Overall a great night was enjoyed by everyone. My son and his friends are already planning their next visit. Thanks again.

Great night's craic, great atmosphere and staff. Of particular note was the betting lady Cathy. Absolute legand of a woman who was the apitomy of costumer service. Her daughter doesn't belive the Royal Navy is a real thing, one of the most amazing and funny things I have heard a mum crack about their own kid.

shocking service! Sat way down in the corner even though half the place was empty! Never seen odds go up and down in seconds so much in my life, dog could be 20/1 30s before the race and jump to 5/6 before it starts, to be told you don’t get the odds when you put the bet on.. which would have been higher... you get the odds when the race actually starts! Pretty sure that’s fixing prices!

Won’t ever be back! Left half way through the night!

Went a couple years ago and had a great night! Had new owners and place has went downhill!

Never be back to the place from we walked in we had to find our own table then it took 55min for our first drink to come to the table when I said to manger she was rude and unhelpful at all. Twice I had spoken to her and both times she did nothing and was unpleasant. Really disappointed.

After arriving, 45mins later no sign of our order being taken. I then went and asked anither staff member to take our order. Then half an hour later our actual server came to take our dinner menu!! When the food arrived there were 2 meals missing, took another 20mins for them to arrive. Then on our round of drinks they missed a drink. On a positive the lady taking bets - courtney was fab! Such a lovely person and happily took our bets all night!

Was here Saturday 1st August 2015. Night out with friends booked the 19.99 offer. (Take on) the is only 1 starter 1 main and 1 desert u can have. If u want anything else it's an extra £1.95 for starter 6.95 for main and 1.95 for desert extra on ur bill. Food not great for what u pay for! Also you need to keep an eye on ur bill as they over charge on drinks. My son went up for last orders and for got to get his change, when he came back to get it the bar man pulled it from his top pocket.

From the moment I booked online I knew we were in for a great night out. I have very particular diet needs, and these were catered for well and sensitively. I have never seen a menu with so many Coeliac options on it! But those who follow FODMAPs can easily make good menu choices, and revisions if necessary.

On arrival, we were greeted by friendly staff, at each stage, we were again greeted by friendly staff, at each point the staff explained how their role in the evening would work , how to order, bet, where to sit etc. Frankly, if you want to experience slick and professional 21st century customer service, then Drumbo Park is the place to be! And yet, the atmosphere was like being in a family situation. I must admit, I have not seen such good customer service in Northern Ireland before!

Whether you are a gambler, or just want a good night out, this is e place to be!

a good fun night out, but... the food was poor. We had been here before with friends and on that occasion the food was good, but we went again last night and everyone in our party of 6 was disappointed with the food. STARTERS - Soup was bland, fishcakes were dry with very little dressing, chicken was dry and too spicey. MAINS - chicken and ham pie was shameful. Tasteless, dry chicken filling dolloped into a rock hard precooked pastry case, the ham was sparse. The "buttery" mash, was not very warm and lacking butter! the fish main was ok but served with the same mash! and I'm afraid the desserts we had were also poor quality. It was a shame because having been impressed by the food on our last visit, we were looking forward to it, but if we do go back it'll just be to the bar for the racing .... I'd rather go and have a good fish supper somewhere else first for a third of the price.
