About Kilbeggan

Kilbeggan Races a truly Irish occasion
An evening of fun at Kilbeggan Races is one of the most enjoyable experiences. It mingles the heart stopping spectacle of racing over jumps with the laid back charm of a genuine rural meeting. The Kilbeggan formula is made for fun, friendship and atmosphere for the thousands who return meeting after meeting giving Kilbeggan the edge over other events.

An evening to remember at Kilbeggan Races
The quiet midlands town is transformed on race evenings into a festival of social and sporting pleasure, drawing admirers from every corner of Ireland. You can meet friends, circulate freely; you can eat, drink or cheer without restriction; you can bring the family or whoever; where for a few pounds the odds are much better than a lottery ticket; and where you can boast afterwards that it was sheer skill that made you pick the winner! If you are bright, witty and rich you will enjoy Kilbeggan Races and if you are not, you will enjoy it just the same.

Catering Facilities
The facilities at Kilbeggan are now at a par with the best available in Ireland and include the new Pavilion bar overlooking the winning post, self-service restaurant, snack bar and of course the tented bar with live music on the hill overlooking the entire racecourse. The bars are a popular meeting place with visitors and locals alike, and are the ideal place for post race analysis as well as a nice relaxing pint.

Ireland's only all-National Hunt Racecourse
The only Racecourse in Ireland where races are over jumps under national hunt rules- the type of racing the Irish love best. That makes for an entertaining and heart-stopping spectacle and you are close enough to see the skill, excellence and bravery of man and animal.

Irish Setting
In the heart of Ireland a unique course with a natural setting for racing, both easy on the eye and ideal for viewing.

The Midlands National
The most significant sponsorship development to date has been the
Midlands National, in a few short years the race has established itself as one of the most exciting chases of the summer racing calendar. The The Midlands National Race Day at Kilbeggan has now become the biggest summer race meeting outside of the Budweiser Irish Derby and the Galway Festival and has also established itself as the social event of the year in the midlands.
