Fairyhouse Racecourse near Ratoath, County Meath, is the venue for many of the biggest races of the Irish jump season. Located just 30 minutes from Dublin, Fairyhouse Racecourse hosts approximately 21 fixtures per year including the Winter Festival in late November, New Year’s Day racing and summer evening racing.

Fairyhouse Racecourse in County Meath has been welcoming people since 1848 and is home of the prestigious BoyleSports Irish Grand National which is the centrepiece of the annual three day Easter Festival.
