Where is the Dublin Racing Festival 2022?

Leopardstown racecourse in County Dublin is the true home of Irish Racing in the capital. The formation of the Dublin Racing Festival, which amalgamated key weekends and feature races into one special national hunt racing weekend, has been a huge success. A true test ahead of the Cheltenham Festival with the perfect gap between trial and championship events the prize money on offer the quality of the horses present is only perhaps dwarfed by Cheltenham itself.

In recent years has produced many a Cheltenham Festival winner in waiting. Leopardstown sells out fast for the Dublin Racing Festival as you would expect with many enjoying the city of Dublin too, just an 8km distance from the track itself.
