For clubs or other groups looking to raise money, a night at the dogs is one of the most social and enjoyable ways of going about it.
Depending on the numbers you expect to attract, you can attend an existing night in Limerick – or even stage a one-off night that’s all about your group.
You’ll enjoy a discounted rate on general admission, plus a range of special offers from our bar and restaurant.
Last year alone, Irish Greyhound Board stadia helped raise €5 million for clubs, organisations, schools and charities right across Ireland. So not alone can you raise some badly needed funds, but your club members and their friends can enjoy a great night out at the same time, building an even stronger club spirit.
Among the facilities at Limerick are:
Areas Available for informal parties
Did you know that 2% of ALL winning prizemoney is donated to the Irish Retired Greyhound Trust? And that the Irish Greyhound Board then match that amount in another donation?
So that means that not only is your cause raising funds from your fundraising event but so is the Irish Retired Greyhound Trust (IRGT).

Limerick County Camogie board in conjunction with our clubs throughout the county held successful dog nights at Limerick Greyhound Stadium. These were major fundraising events to help raise much needed funds for the on-going development and promotion of Camogie in Limerick. As well as the financial benefit associated with the events we also benefitted from the social aspect of the dog nights which were well supported by all age groups with everybody having a great nights entertainment.
We very much appreciated the assistance and co-operation of the management of limerick greyhound stadium in helping us organise and run the event. We found the venue and facilities to be very suitable to our circumstances and needs particularly bearing in mind the large number of children who came along to enjoy the evening.

For the past six years, St. Gabriel’s School & Centre for children with multiple disabilities have held their annual benefit night at the Limerick Greyhound Stadium. These benefit nights have been very successful due to the generosity and involvement of our many sponsors and patrons to which we are very grateful. We wish the management and staff of the Limerick Greyhound Stadium many more years of success.

St James’s National School Cappagh held their ‘Buster Fundraising Night’ on Friday, November 29th. We had a huge turnout at the Limerick Greyhound Stadium on what proved to be a very successful gathering. The children enjoyed the novelty events and the punters were kept busy with the races which were run off in quick succession. The Board of Management and parents association at St. James’s National School wish to acknowledge the huge effort put in by the management and staff of the Limerick Greyhound Stadium, in particular Siobhan Scanlon who has worked closely with us over the last few months in helping make this event such a success. We would like everybody to know that all the hard work has delivered €11,685 to fund renovations at our local school. Once again, thank you.
