One tradition that cannot be missed this holiday season is the Leopardstown Races! It’s the highlight of the Irish horse racing calendar and the Christmas Season too! The Annual Leopardstown Christmas Festival offers 4 amazing days of racing post-Christmas dinner and shopping rush so you can enjoy and keep the celebrations going into the New Year!
The long running Festival attracts people from all over the country who love an exciting day at the races combined with the magic of Christmas. It features a range of races and is a world class theatre of the best horses, jockeys, owners and trainers competing against each other.
If the horses aren’t your thing, there’s plenty to do in addition to watching the races! There’s a super fun atmosphere and the festival always attracts the best crowds from near and far. It also has a great selection of bars and restaurants, so make sure to soak up the Christmas atmosphere while you’re there. Continue your Christmas celebrations by heading back into the city for a night on the town with #Highline at Sophie’s.
