An evening to remember at Kilbeggan Races
The quiet midlands town is transformed on race evenings into a festival of social and sporting pleasure, drawing admirers from every corner of Ireland.
You can meet friends, circulate freely; you can eat, drink or cheer without restriction; you can bring the family or whoever; where for a few pounds the odds are much better than a lottery ticket; and where you can boast afterwards that it was the sheer skill that made you pick the winner! If you are bright, witty and rich you will enjoy Kilbeggan Races and if you are not, you will enjoy it just the same.
The facilities at Kilbeggan now include the Pavilion bar overlooking the winning post, self-service restaurant, snack bar and of course the tented bar with its live music on the hill overlooking the entire racecourse.
The bars are a popular meeting place for visitors and locals alike and are the ideal place for post-race analysis as well as a nice relaxing pint.
