RACE & STAY
OUR HEART IS RACING
WHO WE ARE
Formed in 2012 originally in partnership with The Curragh Racecourse, we were born from our love of horse racing and the want to deliver a first class guest experience to those we look after. Due to the success of this project and the need to seperate the business ideals, in 2013 Race and Stay™ and Curragh Hospitality™ became registered trading names of an independent company, Enigma Marketing Limited, (Registered in Ireland No: 524249). We are a 100% Irish owned company with our Registered Office in Roscommon and our Operational Office in Kilcullen, County Kildare, very close to The Curragh, Punchestown and Naas Racecourses.
From our conception we grew quickly and we are the Largest and the Premier Horse Racing Tour and Guest Management company in Ireland. We have managed over 30,000 guests so far and in 2019 alone we welcomed over 5,000 guests who booked Irish Tour and Racing packages with us. Growing year on year, we were looking forward to welcoming over 7,000 guests to Ireland in 2020 before the Covid-19 pandemic happened. As a result of this, and in line with current government guidelines, we are all currently working from home but are still determined to offer the same first class service our clients should expect from us as we look forward to the near future when we can welcome you all back to enjoy a fabulous Irish Racing experience with Race & Stay
WHAT WE DO
Race & Stay are proud to be the ONLY approved Guest Management Partner for Horse Racing Ireland, for Longines Irish Champions Weekend and for the The Curragh, Punchestown, Leopardstown, Naas, Fairyhouse and other fine Irish Racecourses.
By listening to what race goers and international visitors want, by using our principles over 30 years of experience in Irish tourism and guest management and in consultation with the Racecourses and Hotels we work with, we created our managed packages and branded them as Race & Stay. Our Race & Stay Packages are well thought out, very competitively and transparently priced, flexible and very easy to book. We deal with all aspects of guest requirements which can include: Hotel bookings, airport transfers, return transport to and from racecourses on race days, racecourse admission and hospitality packages, special events, side trips and a bespoke concierge service.
Our reputation is excellent with the suppliers and partners we work with and also with our customers too. We receive many glowing testimonials each year, some of which you are welcome to read here. Booking with us is safe and easy, when you book we only take one small refundable deposit, you then have up until 31 days before you arrive to confim your booking and pay your balance. Should you wish to amend your booking anytime before 31 days before arrival you can do so with no penalties. You can also cancel your booking in full and receive a full refund from us.
When we can welcome you back we have exciting new offers to tempt you. We now offer a myriad of additional Racecourses and Tour extras including spcialist Golf, Shooting and Spa Packages. We also have a new range of Platinum VIP offers and great value Group packages all designed to save you time and money and to give you the best Irish Racing Experience possible.
Race and Stay was originally founded on good business practice and to provide an Honest, Fair and High quality guest service for race goers. Those core values will never change, despite the severe challenges to the Hospitality, Horse Racing and Irish Tourism industry, we are presently dealing with. At some point soon guests will return to Irish Racecourses and when they do we will be ready to welcome you all back with our NEW updated offers. As usual we have tried to cater for the majority of guest requirements with our NEW pre-built Race and Stay packages, but as always, simply tell us what YOU want and we'll provide a quotation for anything you would like to do in Ireland. Just a quick call to us or email and we'll get right back to you.
You are welcome to contact us anytime if you want to find out more about us. In the meantime, please do stay safe and well and thank you for reading, we look forward to meeting you soon.
