The Irish 1,000 Guineas is an historic flat horse race that is open to three-year-old thoroughbred fillies, with a course distance of 1 mile. It's a great horse racing holiday close to home.
The Irish 2,000 Guineas is the same distance but open to both colts and fillies and its winners often go on to compete in the later race, the St. James’s Palace Stakes which takes place in the following month.
We include a visit to the traditional Coolmore Stud before going on to experience two days of superb racing at The Curragh.
Join us for a very warm Irish welcome and a racing weekend to remember!
