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!
