County Kildare is know at the Thoroughbred County and if you are fan of horseracing you will be spoiled for choice with 3 well known racecourses on our doorstep.

The Curragh is Ireland's premier flat racecourse.   It is situated on the Curragh plains in County Kildare, between the towns of Newbridge and Kildare and is just off Exit 12 on the M7, so very convenient to access.   The Curragh is the home of the Dubai Duty Free Derby - held at the end of June each year.

Punchestown Racecourse is located close to the town of Naas, County Kildare.   Punchestown is known as the home of Irish Jump racing and plays host to the fantastic annual Punchestown Festival at the end of April.

Naas Racecouse is the closest to us here at The Westgrove.  Just a ten minute drive from the hotel, Naas holds very popular Summer Racing Evenings with a BBQ and live music.


We are a long standing partner of Race and Stay, Ireland's premier horse racing tour company, which will take all the pain out of organising a trip to the races with their great value hospitality packages.
