Ireland’s oldest horse racing venue hosting over 12 race meetings per year. The highlights of the racing calendar are the highly popular Ulster Derby in June and the very successful two-day Northern Ireland Festival of Racing in November.
Since the 17th Century Down Royal Racecourse has brought the "Sport of Kings" to generations of people in Northern Ireland - it's a race course steeped in history. Racing horses isn't just a sport at Down Royal, it's a part of their culture, heritage and spirit. They live, breathe and sleep it!
