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.
Described in many quarters as the social event of the year in the Midlands, The Midlands National is one of the most exciting chases of the Summer Racing calendar. The race has become the largest Summer Race Meeting outside of the Irish Derby and the Galway Plate and consistently provides fun, friendship and an electric atmosphere. A full evening of entertainment for all the family including live music, children’s entertainment as well as the glamour and style of the Best Dressed Lady.
Special Horse Racing and Accommodation packages available at Bloomfield House Hotel.

Victorian Escapade - A Group Activity
Take a step back in time to bygone pleasures at nearby Clonard House where each guest will experience a delightful mix of below stairs industriousness and upstairs luxury (with a lot of laughter thrown in). On arrival, everyone dresses as servants to do some of the household chores, prepare dessert for the gentry and out-walk your fellow-guests in a chamber-pot relay!
Then go upstairs where everyone changes attire to become Lords and Ladies. Retire to the drawing room for some parlour games, a rather elegant dance and of course the inevitable photoshoot. The event finishes with afternoon tea or dinner in the dining room - where you have the honour of being the guests at a rather grand party.
