Private Tour - The Irish National Stud


Approx. 1 - 1.5 hours

Guests are then free to explore the grounds after the tour.


€200 for group (max group capacity of 12)
€5 pp for Irish Racehorse Experience

Journey through the stud farm and gain a fascinating insight into the thoroughbred industry. Learn about our colourful history dating back to 1900 and how over the years we have bred some of the most successful racehorses in Europe.

Depending on the time of year you could have a chance of seeing a newborn foal only hours old or see all our Mares and Foals in our wonderful lush green paddocks.

During your private tour, guests get the chance to see their roster of Stallions and see how we manage these magnificent animals.

Round off your visit with a trip to see their "Living Legends Team" and witness National Hunt champions who have retired and now enjoy their days in their paddock to the delight of their adoring fans. They are a big fan of carrots and pets!

After your tour you have free time to self-guide their wonderful gardens, the world-famous Japanese Gardens and the Wild Irish garden of St Fiachra’s.

The Irish Racehorse Experience is the newest addition to the Irish National Stud and is a ‘must-see’ attraction. This can be added on to any ticket type for 5 euro per guest. The Japanese Gardens café serves delicious brunches, lunches and treats throughout the day. All freshly prepared and home made by Ballymaloe trained chef, Natalie Collins.
