About Us

Race and Stay are the Premier Horse Racing Tour Company in Ireland. Since we opened our doors over 46,000 happy guests have booked with us and we are very proud to be the Official Guest Travel Partner for Horse Racing Ireland and for all major Irish Racecourses.

Our History

Race and Stay™ was originally formed in 2012 in association with The Curragh Racecourse to deliver a complete Hotel, Transport and Racing package to the many National and International guests wanting to come racing in Ireland.

Starting with small numbers of guests we quickly grew and as an independent company since 2013 we have become the largest and the Premier Horse Racing Event and Guest Management Company in Ireland. We are proud to be the Only Approved Guest Management Partner for Horse Racing Ireland and many Irish Racecourses. Our offices are based in County Kildare, the epicentre of horse racing in Ireland, and our key staff each have over 25 years experience working in the Horseracing sector of the Irish Tourist industry.

In 2023 we celebrated our 10th anniversary and the future looks very bright with already a near full order book for some events. Our original staff are all still here and we have recruited more staff to enhance what we do and help us deliver the best guest service possible into the future.

Looking Forward

Throughout the last few months we have been busy. We have redesigned our website to offer many more Race and Stay Packages, to provide more information on each event, and to make the booking of packages easier.

This year we have taken time to take stock, reinvent our offers, re-negotiate the best deals from our Hotels and also to further our already good relationships with the Irish Racecourses we deal with. We now sponsor several key races in Ireland and we also have pledged to give back and support the Irish Injured Jockeys Fund and Irish Horse Welfare trust, the two main charities looking after care of the equine and human superstars in our sport.

With Patrick Mullins, the world's most succesful Amateur Jockey as our ambassador and our very valuable partnership with Horse Racing Ireland we are now stronger than ever. Our new Race and Stay packages, and our long-term commitment to Irish Racing will only bring us closer to our valued guests and the industry we love and work in. We are always looking forward, We are excited, We hope you will be too. 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.
