Always come to Limerick Racecourse around the start of May every year for the Limerick VW Show 🚗 Always a great day out 🍦 I’d recommend that if your visiting to go to the vw show bring your own food 🧺 Highly recommend everyone to visit the racecourse at some stage because it is a lovely place a fountain and the horse racing tracks and the building that has a restaurant/bar inside is well maintained 👍🏻

Went to the races the day after Stephen's day. We rented a Private Suite (Box) and could easily fit 10 - 15 people!!! This was my first time at the races ....and I will probably be going back!!! Pros: Great view of the races from our own balcony. Finger food served half-way through race meeting. A tipster calls into the box....with loads of tips. The bar is approx. 10 feet away!!! Teller comes round to each box to take bets before each race! You can go down to the paddock for an up close encounter with horses and jockeys! Plenty of facilities, Bars, Food, etc. Plenty of parking Cons: None...expect my bad luck at the bookies!!!!!! The place is well run and spotlessly clean. All staff were friendly and very obliging. Would definitely recommend....even for kids.

couldnt attend the leopardstown february festival so looked for alternatives & stumbled accross a two day meeting at Limerick, what a pleasant suprise easy cheap flights from Manchester to Shannon & stayed in the Limerick city hotel for 3 nights bed & breakfast. Booked two days racing at the Munster national meeting flat on saturday and jumps on sunday, fairly quiet on the saturday but very welcoming by the locals, sunday had the meal package in the panoramic suite it was great value for money at 62 euros had a great weekend of racing and drinking Guiness, loved the track loved the people loved the city, we will be back in 2020

Travel to Ireland has to include a visit to the racecourse or race track if you use North American terminology. The event is a great way to experience another element of Irish culture. Enjoy the food carefully if your career plans are to be a featherweight jockey. It will take more than one visit to decide on the which bookie offers the best odds in races that can include up to 15 horses. Although I did not discover this betting line -- but I'm sure there is a bet that someone will even place the first bet!

Attending the summer evening races for a corporate event, was given a nice table to sit 14 right by the balcony. Service was very good all staff were friendly, helpful and accommodating, nothing was too much trouble. The food itself was as you’d expect for event food, nothing fancy bit basic, but was tasty. There was a band downstairs after which looked good fun. Beautiful racecourse with amazing views. If you like racing it’s a nice way to see it without getting cold and wet, don’t expect restaurant quality food.
