What our guests say

Shabra Charity Foundation

Rita Shah


Down Syndrome Centre

"We chose Leopardstown Racecourse as one of the best venues for some of our fundraising events. The one thing that stands out the most is the efficiency of all the staff, everything that we ask of them is no problem at all and when something is asked of them they act very quickly. We would highly recommend Leopardstown Racecourse as venue for any of your future events."

Friends of Dublin Football

"Friends of Dublin Football have been using Leopardstown Racecourse to host fundraising events since 2013. We have always found them to be the most welcoming hosts. Lots of options of function areas to cater to whatever size crowd we have attending. When arranging functions like this, communication between the venue and both myself and our various partners is key, and Leopardstown, led by John Lyons, have never been found wanting. We have booked in for the Bulmers Live festivals on several occasions, and I believe these events are hard to beat for value to the punter. Superb catering, great racing and top-class entertainment make them a very attractive offering for us."
