GO Horse Racing In Belfast

Horce racing in Belfast Whether you’re hoping to dress up smart and have a picnic at the horses or take the older members of the family to a lively night out at the dogs there’s plenty of opportunities to go racing in Belfast.

There’s a really fun night to be had at Ballyskeagh Greyhound Stadium [map] on Ballyskeagh Road. You can bet on a dog and see if your fortune comes in on four legs. You could even dine in the stadium’s restaurant before heading out to watch all the action.

Down Royal Racecourse [map] is located just 10 miles south of Belfast at Maze, Lisburn, and has 13 meetings throughout the year including the Bass Ireland St Patrick’s Day meeting, the Mirror May Day meeting, the Anglo Irish Bank Derby meeting and the internationally acclaimed Northern Ireland Festival of Racing in November.

Down Royal Racecourse has brought the sport of kings to generations of people in Ulster since the 17th century and is proud to boast some of the most modern facilities for any race-goer.

Since the early 1990’s the racecourse has undertaken major development and modernisation. Phase one in 1993 saw the completion of a new grandstand which introduced 14 corporate boxes, a VIP hospitality suite, a public bar and an elevated viewing area overlooking the track and finish post.

The most recent facility at the racecourse is the weigh room and administration complex. Completed in 2000 this multifunctional building holds all the facilities for race day officials, jockeys, and administration staff. And on the first floor a spacious member’s suite can accommodate more than 300 people and is reserved for members', owners and trainers.
