Situated in the heart of the Ireland, Kilbeggan
is one of five National Hunt (jumps) racecourses. As popular a racing venue as
there is in the country, Kilbeggan is very much a summer track and the valuable
Midlands National Handicap Chase is a recognised trial for the Galway Plate and
other major festival races. It is a tight right-handed track and the runners
are nearly always on a turn, presenting quite a challenge for the jockeys who
ride there. The vast majority of race meetings are held in the evening time
which only adds to the attraction of the course which is located close to the
town of Kilbeggan, itself a popular tourist venue in County Westmeath.
Kilbeggan is situated in the centre of Ireland and on the new National M6 motorway Dublin to Galway and now only one hour from Dublin. Kilbeggan is surrounded by the three larger towns of Athlone, Mullingar and Tullamore and is the natural centre between these three towns. The Racecourse is approximately 1 mile from the town centre on the north side; follow the signs from the town square.
