Most of us enjoy Dublin during the Christmas coming time, present shopping, Christmas lights everywhere in Dublin. Trees, decorations, and light spirit, but for some these days, it's a stress, rush and extra duties...And if you are tired from all that mess and all you want is to escape it and get something different, that go to Leopardstown in Ireland. Located right on the foot of Dublin. So get both, city and country life mixed together.
The Festival has been part of the Irish Racing and Sporting calendar since 1888, celebrate the best national hunt racing, live music and festive food with us here at our Dublin track - December 26th - 29th
This Festival injects a new lease of life to the party season and draws in friends from Dublin and its hinterland to the ultimate meeting-up venue in the country. The Irish call it the cure for Santa claustrophobia, it's a great opportunity to meet your friends right at the Christmas time, being out of the center, get a bear and just enjoy the exhilarating day out for sporting fans, socialites and thrill-seekers alike.
