Home of the Irish Grand National over the Easter Weekend. 20 days of racing each year a mixture of weekend, evening and bank holiday fixtures of both flat and national hunt (jump) racing. Located in County Meath and just a 30 minute Dublin City Centre. Free parking and great local transport links. Great for family days out, groups, celebrations and private suites. Top class racing year round!

We visited the fairy house Sunday market while on our trip to Dublin, it takes roughly 1.30 hours to get around having viewed all the stands. I even managed to pick up some bargains. Good experience overall
