Had a great day out here. Easy to get to from Dublin, reasonably priced to get into and plenty of choice for food, drink and betting. Really easy to get the tram back to Dublin too.

First of all, staff around the grounds are very nice and friendly. Food in the main area was very poor. Burger and chips below standard, cold and flavourless. Not cheap considering what you get. Would recommend bringing Your own colder box with some real food!

Great day out. Had been at Naas the day before which was charming. Paid about €40 for grandstand. Bit cold for sitting out too much but good facilities. Barman even brought Guinness to our table when it was quieter! Good fish and chips and quality...More

It's an Irish racecourse so there is Guinness, horses, friendly people, stodgy food. Perfect! My first visit and I enjoyed it very much. The new statue of Hurricane Fly was on show for the first time right by the entrance - impressive.

Hi - starting on Ventura Highway I hope! No need to book 'ordinary' tickets but if you want to go in the more expensive areas then, just to be on the safe side, maybe book and download tickets (and remember to bring them... More
