Leopardstown Racecourse is an Irish horse-racing venue, located in Leopardstown, Dún Laoghaire–Rathdown, 8 km south of the Dublin city centre. Like the majority of Irish courses, it hosts both National Hunt and Flat racing.

The course, built by Captain George Quin and modelled on Sandown Park Racecourse in England, was completed in 1888 and acquired by the Horse Racing Board of Ireland in 1967. Many important races are held here and racing takes place all year round, with about 22 meetings per year.

The Leopardstown Hall of Fame honours famous Irish horse racing trainers, jockeys and horses like, Vincent O'Brien, Tom Dreaper, Pat Taaffe and Pat Eddery, Arkle, Dawn Run, Levmoss and Nijinsky.

  • At the first day of champions weekend today. Fabulous day brilliant racing. To be able to see these great horses up close was great. Race Course is fantastic in mint condition. Would recommend to everyone. Personally would love if both days of champions weekend were held here. 😀😀😀😀🏇🏇🏇🏇
  • Absolutely loved the experience. First time attending an actual race and the atmosphere was electric. The music after the show was great too. A lot of dancing and overall good entertainment. A really good place to check out for a grouping out or even if you just want to go there on your own.
