Dundalk Stadium Odds Betting Sites

Dundalk Stadium is a racecourse of two halves, featuring both horse and dog racing and is the only all-weather track of its kind in Ireland. The stadium prides itself on being ‘more than just a racing venue’ and offers a variety of hospitality options on site. Visitors to the stadium will be met with a wealth of bars as well as three different eateries including fast food, a carvery, and a beautiful restaurant.

The Dundalk stadium has a long history of over 120 years but has undergone many reworkings during that time. In 2007, Dundalk stadium underwent a complete renovation and refurbishment which totally changed the feel and purpose of the site, after been originally opened four years previously, in 2003. The stadium boasts a fully floodlit poly-track surface which is coated with a wax surface, making it modern and innovative. The full track is a total of 10 furlongs but also features a smaller sprinting track at 5 furlongs. The racecourse features stables that can house up to 130 horses and kennels for many greyhounds.

Many racecourses only operate full time throughout the spring and summer seasons and that is where Dundalk is special. The course really lights up during the winter months when visitors can attend a flat race at least once each week.

In 1999, the stadium was brought out and the greyhound racing was introduced, this stadium is the only dual-purpose racecourse in the whole of Europe, making it somewhat unique and interesting.
