Kilbeggan Races

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.
