Track Biography:

Set amongst the picturesque Blackstairs Mountains, our race track is located close to the parade ring, bookies, final fence and the finish line making it extremely assessable for all of the family to view the day’s action.

Our point-to-point is located on the grounds of the beautiful Borris House which is one of the few intact living Irish estates that can trace its history back to Brehon times, and the royal ruling families of ancient Ireland. The estate is the family home of the 16th generation of McMorrough Kavanagh’s and still contains the majority of its original furniture, paintings, documentary archives and other historic family artefacts.

Borris House is a popular wedding venue with a range of beautiful accommodation offers to choose from as well as providing tours of the estate.
