A day at the races

A great day out for all the family at Leopardstown horse races. There is often also a live band on after the races to attract the 15-25 age group.

One of the best racecourses we have but still not without fault. It's always baffled me how they don't have a permanent ATM and they'd usually get in one of those portable ones but now they seem to have even done away with this,replacing it with a girl in a shed with cash and a card machine. Also the food... More

Ate in 1888 restaurant. The food and service were very good. Not to happy being put in the furthest corner near the entrance/exit to the kitchens though. Probably thought a table of women would be noisy!!!!!! We were able to bet with the tote at the table, but had to walk through restaurant to watch race , there were screens... More

Table in the 1888 restaurant was exception value with quality food and choice and great service. Best part was being able to have courses served around the racing when we wanted. Really good idea! Just needed to win

A great day out even if you have no idea about horses or racing. soak up the atmosphere and watch the punters in the betting ring. Watch the beauty of these amazing animals close up in the parade ring and then shout them home as they run. Alternatively watch the ladies with the oddest hats in creation and wonder about... More

Visited on champion hurdle day and have to say what a refreshing change from home! Entrance fee for the quality of racing was exceptional, same can be said for the general pricing and overall friendliness/atmosphere of the place! A great day out and a place I can highly recommend!

Had a great time at the races. Nice course, you can see all the action and no queueing to get a drink. Saw 2 very good horses win the main races plus Hurricane Fly in the parade ring. To top it all off we had 3 good priced winners!! Excellent and not the rip off Cheltenham has become.

Had what I think was the first wedding(my uncles) in on of the private rooms on the top floor of the racecourse, it was an amazing day and was very sunny, the staff were very friendly and the food was delicious
