It's difficult to split a group of turds as they all have revolting properties...we only have a handful of acceptable tracks.

Thurles and Clonmel haven't changed much since the 80's but do get some decent racing compared to some in that list.
Are we talking about facilities or facilities and track?

track only, yes there are quite a number of other bad tracks but as the topic say 'Top 5', thats my opinion, i've noticed no one has listed 5 in order.

Sligo is not nearly as bad as what it was with their new drainage - look at the entries/runners last Sunday.

sinn, you might agree with me here but five best in no particular order are,
Wexford, Ballinrobe, Thurles, Cork, Bellewstown followed closely by Killarney and Roscommon........for making money of course. Jeez if I wanted comfort I'd stay in my sitting room.

Killarney and Ballinrobe are 2 of my favourite tracks , cant see why they would be in anybodys "worst " list .  Apart from the track , which is a bit tight on bends , Killarney is one of the most beautifully situated courses in the world .

Ballinrobe is well run , fairly scenic , and friendly staff .And if you pick your races , you can win money there ( not the 16 runner handicaps , which at any track are just a lottery ) .

Killarney in a way is bit of a specialist track, u need a horse with a bit course form to win there. On warm summers evening in Killarney its the closest thing to heaven. The facilities are pretty good and the entertainment is always good afterwards.

I spent a miserable day at Sligo once.  Down to my last few coins I backed a nag to place and it won. 
I can't remember much about the course except that it resembled a paper-clip.  I'm not going back to check.

Ballinrobe ?

On a nice Summers day, there isn't a better place to be.
Looking across to the back straight with the mountains in the background and a racecard keeping the sun out of your eyes.

Great stuff.

there is a  lot of siht racing at dundalk,the track and facilities are good but they are struggling to get crowds.Even on saturday most pubs got 40 free tickets each and the crowd was still poor.

Gowran Park doesn't seem fair. Not easy come from off the pace. And not so easy either to anticipate what will be in front-rank when they all start to keep going at one pace from before the straight. I guess in-running is the way to go but are there any layers? It's a pity really because the racing there isn't of a bad quality horse-wise. Is it watering is doing this?

Punchestown is the most over rated grade 1 racecourse in the British isles,they are almost constantly turning and the run in on the chase track is completely inadequate,more than likely if one jumps the last in front,then success is invariably guaranteed.Its undulating in the extreme and the hurdle track unbelievably has a downhill finish.Catering at this racecourse is ordinary to put it mildly,the atmosphere was almost non existant at this years festival,and for quite a few years in fact.Propably a course that is best suited by ease in the ground which reduces the chance of your horse being hampered on the run around the last bend.All in all its a decent enough track and thats all,there are 10 courses in England that would lose it when it comes to both the actual track and of course facilities.Leopardstown,Naas and Navan are much fairer tests as well

Jim - hard to have a bet when racing on the inside track, but on the main chase/hurdle track, results are fair on whole,no?

I wouldnt have a problem with having a bet at it on any of their tracks to be honest,its just that i think its vastly over rated.Facilities wise it wouldnt bother me too much either,although it would be nice to have an option of eating something at a race meeting,i actually think that the inside track as it used invariably when the ground is bad,offers less chance of a hard luck story,as more often than not the horses get strung out and there is an elongated run in as well.Not for a moment am i saying that its one of the worst five racecourses in Ireland,in fact it could be one of the top five,but if it is,its by the skin of its teeth.

Clonmel is a lovely track but investment in facilities is poor which is a pity as it could be a decent dual track. The Curragh is a 5hithole which is also an absolute pain in the ring to get to.
