Enjoy fine food, racing, and entertainment at Limerick Racecourse; oh, and keep it quiet, but you might even get to meet Santa.

The Christmas Festival at Limerick Racecourse is suitably jolly, so enjoy some festive and fabulous entertainment, as well as edge-of-your-seat racing, at the track at Greenmount Park.

The days after Christmas are the perfect time to get out and take in the brisk country air at Limerick Racecourse, where hardy horses will be fit as fiddles and ready to take to the track. Cheer the horses on from the stands and enjoy some live music and light festive snacking.

The National Hunt races will see some of Ireland's best horses tackle very imposing hurdles as their jockeys try to strategise a winning gallop around the 11 furlong track. Follow the favourites, from the parade ring to the finish line, and get emotionally invested in this rollercoaster of a race.

The good people at Limerick Racecourse will also be making this day of the festival family-themed; they've been known to put up a bouncy castle or a puppet show for the kids so that the grown-ups have time to do the maths on their race cards and check out the fine fillies at the ring before the horses set off for the start line. In addition, you might just get to meet Santa, fresh from delivering presents all around the world with his reindeer helpers.

There will be so much to entertain every member of the family, so bring the gang with you to Limerick Racecourse and blow the cobwebs away with some suitably rustic and seasonal country pursuits.
