Since the 17th Century, Down Royal Racecourse has brought the "Sport of Kings" to generations of people in Ulster. Over the years the racecourse has been awash with a sea of coloured silks - many worn by champion jockeys, others by those still attempting to master their trade. Legendary horses have captivated the crowds and others less known have beaten all odds to enter into the history books and the hearts of spectators.
Racing horses isn't just something we do at Down Royal, it's a part of our culture, our heritage and our spirit. Horse racing is rich in tradition and there can be no mistake that Down Royal provides a vibrant, modern and fun-filled atmosphere for serious pundits, families, social butterflies or corporate guests.
Our guests receive a warm welcome from the moemnt they arrive, enjoying a fabulous experience and superb hospitality throughout their visit. At Down Royal we offer something a little different, that little extra touch and attention to detail that makes everyday a success.
