Located only six miles south of Dublin city centre, at the foot of the Dublin mountains, Leopardstown racecourse provides the fun and excitement of horse racing in a quality environment.

Completed in 1888, the racecourse was built by Captain George Quin and modelled on  Sandown Park Racecourse in England. The Horse Racing Board of Ireland (now Horse Racing Ireland) acquired Leopardstown in 1967. The track is situated in a 220 acre estate and is a left-handed oval track of one mile and six furlongs with an uphill finishing straight.
