Shelbourne Park Guest Reviews
“The IT company that I work for, designated me to provide an evening of entertainment for a group of potential investors coming in from the USA. I took a gamble, as a friend had recommended Shelbourne Park. The gamble paid off and I was a real winner with the company, following a fantastic meal at Shelbourne Park, the racecard got under starters orders and my Asian/American guests had a fun filled night, as the races were so close together, it meant that we were focused on the next race and had great fun with the pick4 selections and Tri-casts and Fore-casts, it really was fun and more importantly, I did not have to make small talk all evening. We got the contract, I got the promotion, and I am now an enthusiast for a night at the races no matter what the occasion”. John Mac, Dublin.
“When someone suggested that I take our active retirement group to a night at Shelbourne Park, my first reaction was, are you joking? On the night, the staff were friendly and professional, the food was as good as any restaurant in Dublin in which I have eaten, and the thrill and excitement of watching the greyhound racing from a cosy warm restaurant atmosphere, taught an old dog new tricks, you are never too old to learn something new”. Ann, Active Retirement Group, Meath.
“My twins were making their communion, and my sister said that we should have the kids party at Shelbourne Park Greyhound Stadium. My sister is a good judge of people and places, and I knew that she would not suggest any venue for this special occasion, unless it would come up trumps. We booked one of the suites upstairs, it was decorated beautifully and the food and ambiance was second to none, the pictures were unique and my children and their friends have never stopped talking about the fun day they had”. Emma, Castleknock, Dublin.
“We had booked our Hen Party at Shelbourne Park, we were on a tight budget as my sister’s wedding was only three weeks away. The package offered by Shelbourne Park was fantastic and real value for money, we had a great night, and we simply walked out the front gate to the taxi rank and our pre-arranged mini-bus took us directly and safely to our hotel”. Paula, Kildare.
“My mates and I work shifts 7 days per-week, The Stag Party package offered meant that we could enjoy a night-out mid-week that did not interfere with our work schedule, we enjoyed the fact that one of the races was named after our stag party group, loads of cheers for that when it was called, we enjoyed finger food, a couple of pints and some great betting fun. We were all able to report for work next day, and unlike some of the Temple Bar Stags I had been at, I could actually remember this one and we had great pictures to show the great night we enjoyed at the races, which was hassle free”. Kevin, Louth.
“Twenty of us arrived in Dublin to play golf at a very good golf club, when we had played our 18 hole game, we really wanted to do something other than sit around the clubhouse talking card scores and getting in the rough. The waitress said that she had just enjoy a night at Shelbourne Park with her friends and that she would highly recommend it. We asked the young woman if she could help us book in to Shelbourne Park that night, within a couple of minutes she had a mini-bus waiting outside for us and within 30 minutes we were sitting down being served our drinks in Shelbourne Park. The meal was very good, and unlike many of the ‘rushed’ tourist eateries one can find in Dublin, the Shelbourne Park eating experience is about relaxing for the evening and having fun, not about filling seats and providing happy meals at the click of your finger, if you want fast food, go to McDonalds, if you want a quality eating and hospitality experience go to Shelbourne Park”. Bob, New York.
