We are very lucky to have the use of a large shed on the grounds which we divide up into three sections. (1) Jockeys changing room, (2) Secretary/declarations area and (3) Hospitality area which provides free food to owners, trainers, helpers etc.

We also have a separate area for the Turf Club Stewards.

We have the services of some great fast food providers who provide chips, burgers, hot beverages etc, so welcome especially if the weather is a little cold. 

As mentioned previously we also provide food free of charge to racing connections.

As a result of the very strict drink driving laws a few years ago we decided to discontinue providing or selling alcohol. 

However people can bring their own and some wonderful and exotic beverages can be seen taken out of the back of cars and trucks. 


As warm as possible. High heels probably not advisable however it is lovely to see some people dressed up in their country tweeds.
Yes all dogs welcome once they are kept on a lead.
Of course. We just ask that no rubbish is left behind.
No, but because the children can get up close to the action we find they love watching the races.
No we do not provide an ATM so we recommend that you make a stop in Tinahely on your way to the races.

As a large number of the people attending our point-to-point are there purely for the races we try to concentrate solely on providing the best racing possible.

Over the years, after the last official race we have ran a very popular race confined to our hunting members riding their hunters.  We have not been in a position to run this for the last few years but hope to start doing so again.
