Shelbourne Park Greyhound Stadium

Reviewed January 8, 2014

I was due to come to Shelbourne Park for my 40th birthday, so just under 12 years later, I finally made it. Went as a family and the others enjoyed the friendly family atmosphere. The prize money was good on the night we visited, so the crowd may have been a little bigger than usual, but the racing was excellent. Bookmakers took me back to Lancashire tracks in the early 80s, with a couple betting without the favourite or even 2 or 3 dogs. Derby final night here must be electric

We had a lot of fun spending a night at the dogs. We prebooked a restaurant package and was lucky and got a table by the windows. From the table we had a great view of the track. The food was good (not superb, but above average). The restataurant and gambling service (bets was given at the the table) was very good. Overall a great way to spend an evening in Dublin.

When we first got the the Stadium we didn't feel very comfortable because we felt like the only tourists there. But when we got to the 1st floor it was clear we were wrong :).
Very exciting experience. We even won our first bet! (And then lost al the others, but is was a fun evening none the less :))

If you are in Dublin on your own or with a group Shelbourne Park is a great night out. If you book the restaurant then this will be where you have your evening meal. Great food and drink with a betting service at your table. The atmosphere is great.

Couldn't fault shelbourne park. A decent night out by all accounts, friendly staff. Betting not really my cup of tea but others certainly enjoyed it!

Far too many children running around the place fort liking.

The kind of thing I would do once every ten years and not miss it..
