Clonmel Racecourse (Powerstown Park) has been a popular venue for horse racing for more than 150 years.
The racecourse is a right handed track of one and a quarter miles. It is recognised as a demanding National Hunt course with a stiff uphill climb followed by a gradual downhill run with an uphill finish. Viewing of racing from all points in the enclosure is exceptional. An abundance of mature trees and shrubs enhance the aesthetic quality of the 160 acre racecourse environment. Some of the many famous horses that have ran at Powerstown are Danoli, Dorans Pride, Unsinkable Boxer, Foxchapel King, and Imperial call to mention just a few. Renowned trainers like Aiden O' Brien attend many of our races.
The catchment area of the Racecourse includes Cork, Waterford, Kilkenny and Limerick. Waterford Airport is only 30 miles away, while both Cork and Shannon are each a mere 60 mile journey.
The town of Clonmel is a very historic and interesting town which lies at the foot of the Comeragh mountains and is situated in the valley of the broad and beautiful river Suir. Views of the Comeragh mountains can be clearly seen from the racecourse.
