The Curragh Racecourse is regarded as the headquarters of Irish flat racing. Used from March to November and located 30 miles southwest of Dublin in County Kildare, it also has Naas and Punchestown nearby. The full circuit of the main track for Curragh races is about two miles. It’s a right-handed horseshoe shaped course with chutes for events over a mile and a mile-and-a-quarter.
There are 10 Group 1 races held at this venue which suits strong galloping horses. Those include all Irish Classics for three-year-old thoroughbred colts and/or fillies. These are traditionally staged in late May (both the Irish 2000 and 1000 Guineas), late June (Irish Derby) and mid-July (Irish Oaks). The Curragh Racecourse is also home to the second day of Irish Champions Weekend in mid-September.

Curragh races are currently being run behind closed doors because of the ongoing COVID-19 situation. This is set to be reviewed and updated in line with government advice, with Curragh Racecourse keen to welcome back punters as soon as it is safe to do so.
It’s still worth checking Curragh races fixtures because the decision to allow spectators in could change. If you book tickets to a Curragh Racecourse event that is then moved to behind closed doors, refunds will be processed through the official course website.
