    There is lots going on at the Leopardstown Christmas Festival. The event always attracts celebrities and stars from across the music, sporting, corporate and political worlds, as well as racing fans from near and far.

    If you're still hungry after Christmas dinner, why not savour some of our festive food and drink? Warm up with a hot whiskey, or sample our many hot food options which are available across the racecourse. We have an array of fantastic all-inclusive bundles and packages to suit all budgets and preferences. 

    Make sure to be in the Festival Marquee at 11am before racing each day, where we host an exclusive Winning Line Tipster Panel on the morning of each race day. This is a complimentary event available to all Leopardstown attendees, so make sure to bring your pen to mark your card with the hot tipped horses for the day!
