In addition to the Racecourse, the Curragh is also home to the Training Grounds which contains 80 miles of gallops over 1,500 acres.
The natural turf gallops which have been nurtured for centuries in a unique environment are complemented by a range of artificial surfaces which can be used for all types of work during all seasons. The range of gallops provides trainers with great scope to tailor each horse’s work to suit their individual needs, with gallops varying in length, gradient and surface. View the gallops.
To ensure that National Hunt trainers are well catered for, the training grounds have an all-weather schooling strip as well as extensive schooling options over both hurdles and fences on grass.
The Curragh is home to over fifty trainers in close proximity to the gallops to avail of the excellent facilities. If you would like to have your horse trained on the Curragh Training Grounds, see the Curragh trainers.contact details.
The Curragh Training Grounds are maintained and operated 365 days a year by a skilled and dedicated team providing trainers with continuity and peace of mind even during extreme weather conditions. Contact the training grounds team.
