Leopardstown Winter Festival

Located just outside Dublin city centre, a visit to Leopardstown racecourse is the ideal way to combine a couple of days racing with the chance to experience the vibrant city of Dublin. Why not take a tour around the Guinness Storehouse, visit Kilmainham Gaol, learn about the Easter Rising at the General Post Office or explore the National Museum of Ireland? When you’ve had your fill of sightseeing we suggest a visit to a pub for a glass of the black stuff!

Additional Info


Leopardstown Christmas Festival offers National Hunt racing at its very best. Day three of the Christmas Festival features the Lexus Chase, one of the most prestigious races in the calendar. In 2016 trainer Gordon Elliott saw Outlander and Don Poli come in first and second ridden by Jack Kennedy and David Mullins respectively. Djakadam came home in third for the winning combination of Willie Mullins and Ruby Walsh. The final day of the Christmas Festival is Ryanair Day featuring the Ryanair Hurdle. To kick off the New Year's celebrations in style, an after-race concert is held after racing.  Petit Mouchoir trained by Henry De Bromhead led from the 1st and stayed well to bring it home for B J Cooper. 


Enjoy the festive atmosphere in the glass fronted Leopardstown Pavilion which offers stunning views of the track. Enjoy your three-course lunch and glorious racecourse views from the comfort of your reserved table for the day. The Pavilion also offers TV viewing, tote betting and a tipster.
