One night I always loved as a child is when we went as a family of to “de dog’s”. We’d all pile in to the car and go to the Greyhound racing stadium. For those who have never went to might just sound like someone’s pets running around a field. Oh no. It is modern seated stadium’s with dining on hand, races every 5-10 minutes with the Grey hounds travelling at break neck speed around the course in front of you. You just find yourself jumping and shouting every 5 minutes as the race comes to the end.
One of the most well known race courses in Ireland is Shelbourne Park in the heart of Dublin. With 4 bars on site and private suites for parties or work groups, it has become quiet a popular thing in the city during the week. Nowadays rather than just chips and burgers there is fine dining providing on site in Shelbourne Park. Dobbins at the Park is their restaurant but you would want to make sure that you reserve seats as they go fast.
Like any racing event there is betting facilities at Shelbourne Park, with the Tote coming to your table upon request to take bets. Many people place a token wager of a Euro on each race just to spice up the evening. It really is a great night.
Shelbourne Park Greyhound Stadium race nights for January & February are Thursday & Saturday Nights with Dining available in our DOBBINS Grandstand Restaurant as well as the 7 luxury suites.
Low Cost Carvery and many buzzing bars are on site. Excellent racing action on the track. The dog’s is an authentic and traditional Irish fun night out suitable for all the family. It is quick turnover, non stop racing, which will keep you on the edge of your seat all night.
