The County Louth Foxhounds were founded in 1817 and one of the few packs of Old English breed of hounds in Ireland.
One of the real attractions of point-to-point racing is the opportunity to get up close and personal with the future stars of the racing world in a relaxed and family friendly environment.
Our annual point-to-point typically takes place at the beginning of April. Situated almost exactly half way between Dublin and Belfast on the Carlingford road, the estate has been in the Tipping family since the early 18th Century.
A short step from the house, the cottage walk leads you towards ‘Tippings Wood’ and as you pass through the wonderfully crafted stone arch, a lake of 1.2 acres lies to your left. As the amazing 200 acres of deciduous woodlands unfolds all around you, the ground rises to the summit of Tippings Rock, where views of Ravensdale, The Cooley Peninsula and the sea give you ample reward for your short climb.
