Leopardstown Racecourse

Leopardstown Course is found in the area with the same name, located about 8 kilometres from downtown Dublin, Ireland. It is a National Hunt venue that also takes in Flat racing activities. Built in 1888, the course was modelled along the design of England’s Sandown Park. The motive here was to offer plenty of flexibility to horses of all kinds of reach. The racecourse is known to be busy throughout the year, hosting an average of 22 meetings.

The facility has a wide array of support services around it, with a clubhouse and golf course part of the ensemble. There are shops, restaurants, fitness centres and even pubs within the course.


Over the years, a wide array of races has taken place in this course. Some of them include Tyros Stakes, Meld Stakes, Lexus Chase, Christmas Hurdle and plenty more. Leopardstown holds a race each year. When it comes to tracks, there is a distinction in length and obstacles for each single one. Some are just a little over 1000 metres in length while there are others with even longer reaches. The course does not specify the kind of horses that run here or even their ages, which creates an interesting open-to all scenario. The Irish Champions Stakes is considered by far the most important fixture of the calendar year at Leopardstown takes place in September and pulls in a whole bunch of thoroughbreds from around the world. Now, the site is getting ready for the National Hunt Finale, which is expected to take place on the 4th and 5th of MarcH and is the highlight of the first quarter of this year.
