Fairyhouse Races

Fairyhouse Racecourse is a right-handed oblong shaped horse racing venue in Ratoath, County Meath, Ireland. Best known as the home of the Irish Grand National on Easter Monday, it hosts National Hunt and flat horse races under rules, and there is a point to point course, too. Whatever code the Fairyhouse races that horses are running in, the track best suits strong travelling and galloping types.

This testing course is about a mile-and-three-quarters for a full circuit with an uphill climb to Ballyhack in the back straight and for the last three furlongs. It is better for chasers to be close-up jumping the final fence.

There are five Grade 1s held here and Fairyhouse Racecourse is used for most of the year. As well as the Easter Festival, there is a Winter Festival at this track, too.

Fairyhouse Racecourse Behind Closed Doors

Fairyhouse 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 Fairyhouse Racecourse keen to welcome back punters as soon as it is safe to do so.

It’s still worth checking Fairyhouse races fixtures because the decision to allow spectators in could change. If you book tickets to a Fairyhouse Racecourse event that is then moved to behind closed doors, refunds will be processed through the official course website.
