Welcome To Kilbeggan Racecourse
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.
Kilbeggan Races is a truly Irish occasion. 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 your few pounds the odds are much better than a lottery ticket, and where you can boast afterwards 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 them just the same. Westmeath C.C. sponsor a feature hurdle race in May. The Elan Midlands National is a July highlight and Bank of Ireland sponsor a major hurdle race during the season, also Max Premium Dog Food sponsor a Handicap Steeplechase in June, attracting hundreds to the racing the Irish love best, National Hunt.
