What our customers say...


Just attended the Dublin racing festival with a group of mates, we stayed in the Clayton hotel close to racecourse absolutely spot on. 2 great days at the races, one day we upgraded to premium tickets and were lucky we sat and watched every race with Willie Mullins only a few seats away. Really enjoyed the relaxed racing feel a leopardstown easy to move about get drink and bet compared to previous experiences at Cheltenham. Hotel was reasonable for Guinness €6 had music and entertainment on both nights, food standard hotel prices, chicken curry rice chips €20. But can’t fault racing breaks spread payments over the year, good communication in the lead up and everything went smoothly. Thanks we will certainly be booking with you again in the future. Peter
