The ultimate luxury Irish Thoroughbred Experience

Immerse yourself amongst world famous racing royalty and follow in the tracks of legendary breeders, trainers and thoroughbred horses during this exclusive equine excursion. Gain unprecedented access to the hallowed grounds of Ballydoyle Racing and Coolmore Stud, the globally renowned partnership that has produced some of the world’s greatest champion racehorses. Accompanied by our private Equine Concierge from Cashel Palace Hotel, guests will have the enviable opportunity to go behind the scenes and learn about the incredible history of these thoroughbred institutions.

Begin the day at Ballydoyle, taking in impressive vistas, the equine therapy centre and seeing the state-of-the-art gallops as if through the eyes of champion trainer Aidan O’Brien. Indulge in a gourmet taste of Tipperary’s Golden Vale with a selection of local delights at Dooks Fine Foods and the opportunity to visit Fethard Horse Country Museum.

The afternoon will take you through the hallowed gates of Coolmore Stud. The tour here commences with a guided stroll through the farm to facilitate an up-close visit with the famous stallions followed by an inspiring visit to the restricted-access Legacy Museum where you will learn the story of Coolmore Stud.
