THE CURRAGH

THE CURRAGH

There is written evidence of horse racing dating back to the third century when chariot races were held at the ‘Cuireach’ – Gaelic word for racecourse, on the lands known today as the Curragh. Little has changed over all the centuries as the Curragh is still home of Irish horse racing.

The Curragh Training Ground is a world class facility spreading over 1,500 acres with numerous gallops of the highest standard ranging from a variety of all weather surfaces to traditional grass and peat gallops.

The gallops are maintained and open 365 days a year in order to provide the best facilities to trainers. We are acutely aware of the value and potential attached to each Thoroughbred horse and therefore the Curragh Training Grounds provide a level of service to allow these horses compete at an international level.

Horses trained on the Curragh have won many of the world’s most prestigious races including the Irish Derby, Epsom Derby, Melbourne Cup, Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe, Aintree Grand National, Irish Grand National, Breeders Cup, Belmont Stakes and Cheltenham Gold Cup.
