It's worth the trouble of leaving City Centre to check out the Leopardstown Racecourse, located in the Foxrock neighborhood (Dublin 18), just outside of town. While particularly great when the weather is nice, it's still a fun time no matter what the climate...remember, Ireland's not supposed to be hot and sunny!

Visiting Dublin, we lucked out that the races were on at Leopardstown. Tickets were $30 for Top Level (3rd floor) seats. They are outside but under cover. There is also a dining, lounge, and bar area that you're allowed to use with the top level tickets. Because it was so cold, we spent our time between races in the lounge,... 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.

The course is very easy to get to via the Luas (green line) and the venue kindly laid on a complementary shuttle bus from Sandyford Luas station. The facilities on course are plentiful and of good quality, and, most of all, the staff were all extremely helpful. I look forward to my next visit.

Fantastic racecourse, great views on the whole course and top quality racing. For €20 entrance to see two grade one races is fantastic in comparison to U.K prices. The number of bars and ease of getting a drink is superb for a main race day. Look forward to visiting again !

The staff at the course where very welcoming and friendly, the bar staff very efficient unlike many uk racecourses. The course itself was immaculate and viewing areas numerous. The management at uk racecourses should... More
