When I first got an invite to celebrate a child's confirmation at the dogs I thought they were crazy! But it turned out that they provide private suites with plenty of televisions so you can see the races no matter where you are sitting. Hot food and sandwiches are part of the package. Everybody including the kids had a really... More

A visit to the dogs is always a great night out if looking for something different to do with pals or the family.

A must for anyone who wants to experience the Irish passion for greyhound racing while enjoying tasty food and drinks in the restaurant with stunning views of the race track. One can place bets very easily (even starting from 1 €) with the table-side services. Shelbourne Park is just a fifteen minute walk from Dublin City Centre - there is... More

We booked into the restaurant for my Dad's birthday and it was a fantastic night out. The view from the table was perfect and the service and food were great. The tote betting to the table meant we didn't have to venture out into the cold unless we wanted to. Would definitely go back next time we are in Dublin.

This is an excellent place to bring family and friends, the excitement is energising and it is full of craic (Irish for fun) and a great laugh.

Venue is nice but could do with a big tidy up. Food isn't great so I would recommend eating before you go there.

My son was home from Florida and we decided greyhounds would be good craic. We went for the 12.50 package which was great value on the Thursday after Christmas. Then approaching the first race we noticed a queue forming at the betting area. There was only two staff accepting bets and we thought the rest of the staff were late... More
