Kilbeggan Races a truly Irish occasion 

The Kilbeggan Races are a vibrant social occasion, an exciting sporting event and an altogether most enjoyable experience. 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 through Kilbeggan's turnstiles. 


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, mingle; you can eat, drink and cheer without restriction; you can bring the family or whoever; where for a few euros 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 not, you will enjoy it just the same.


Catering Facilities

The facilities at Kilbeggan include our panoramic, glass-fronted Balcony Suite - superbly located opposite the winning post, adjacent to the bookmakers’ ring with an expansive view overlooking the entire racetrack and colourful spectator area. Our Self-service restaurant and snack bar provide nourishment for hungry visitors to Kilbeggan. Of course the Tented bar on the hill overlooks the entire racecourse, and is a hub for our live music at Race Meetings. All of our 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 all-National Hunt Racecourse

Kilbeggan is one of Ireland's only Racecourses where races over jumps are under National Hunt rules - the type of racing the Irish love best. Racing at Kilbeggan makes for an entertaining, thrilling and heart-stopping spectacle where you are close enough to see the skill, excellence and bravery of man and animal.


Irish Setting

Set in the heart of Ireland , Kilbeggan is a unique and picturesque course with a natural setting for racing - both easy on the eye and perfect for viewing.  Our viewing area on the Hill is adjacent to the first jump - giving racegoers an impressive view over the entire racecourse and its surroundings. Here, groups can relax, but yet remain immersed in the thrilling racing action and close to all the festivities. Kilbeggan is located in the centre of Ireland on the new M6 motoway - we are only one hour from Dublin and from Galway. Kilbeggan is also surrounded by the larger towns of Athlone, Mullingar, Tullamore, Trim, Kilcock, Longford, Portlaoise, Birr, Edenderry and Ballinasloe.
