Rated in the top 3 course in Ireland by Micheal Clower - The Sunday Times - "The new racecourse has superb facilities and some of the best viewing in the country"
Limerick racecourse opened in October 2001 to a record crowd of 18,000. It is the first built from scratch racecourse in Ireland for 50 years and has first-rate modern facilities in the Hugh McMahon Stand.
The previous course at Greenpark closed in 1999 having held racing for 130 years. The present course is built on the site of a stud farm 250 acres of which is occupied by the racecourse.
Limerick racecourse has something for everyone, a race meeting to suit your style, pocket, taste in music, taste in beer, taste in jockeys.
In fact racing in Limerick probably hosts the most varied series of meetings of all the courses in the country.
