The track at Limerick was the first newly built racecourse in Ireland for 50 years when it opened its doors in October 2001. The course is a right-handed oval track that is one mile and three furlongs in circumference; it hosts both national hunt and flat racing meetings.
Race meetings are held here all year round with several evenings meeting during the summer months, in all there are 18 days of horse racing held at Limerick. The standout races here are the Martin Molony Stakes held in June which is a listed race and the European Breeders Fund Mares Novice Hurdle in March.
There is a draw advantage here for high numbers in races of 6 furlongs.
Trainers Kevin Prendergast and Dermot Weld have been the most prominent winners here over the last few seasons.
