Travel like royalty through the horse country in our luxury chauffeur-driven fleet. Horse racing is known as “The Sport of Kings” and Ireland truly does it well. Known around the world as the centre of all things equestrian, we breed and produce the absolute best racehorses in the world and dominate jump racing the world over. While we are experts in our field of Luxury Private Travel, we are also experts in the equestrian field.
A very exclusive tour, our “Sport of Kings and Queens Tour” was recently inspired by the royal visit to Ireland and to our own hometown of Cashel, otherwise known as “Cashel of the Kings”. The equestrian links between the British Royal family and Irish Thoroughbred industry are no secret, and we are so excited to offer you the opportunity to travel exclusively in their stately tour footsteps.
A 7-day tour that will see you staying at three 5-star Luxury Hotels; The Cashel Palace, Adare Manor, and the Carton House Hotel, all synonymous with the equestrian set here in Ireland. A trip full of equestrian experiences that just simply would not be found elsewhere.
Your week will start with being collected in our Range Rover Autobiography where you will be whisked off to the world-renowned Coolmore Stud for a private tour of the world’s leading stallions. Following on from the tour of the stud. You will immerse yourself in the very frame of racing at the Fethard Horse Museum. Time for supper at The Cashel palace, owned by the world-famous Magner racing dynasty. The next day it is time to meet the expert for a day at the thoroughbred sales and supper with a bloodstock agent. A trip to Cashel would not be complete without a visit to the rock and a pint of Guinness at Foley’s.
You will then move on to The Adare Manor and tour the beautiful Adare sights on foot. Supper and relaxation at the hotel that evening.
We then of course have organised a trip for you to meet your very own racehorse for a day, a very exclusive experience. We will arrange a lease of a runner for the day, we will even organise the horse to run in your very own handpicked colours, which you can take home with you. Today you will experience a stable tour at your trainer’s yard and a chance to meet your horse in person.
The next day it’s time to get to grips with racing ownership and a trip to a national hunt champion yard to learn just why racing is so addictive and how just about anyone can get involved.
All racehorses start out somewhere and today it is a trip to see the first stages of those world stage champions, A trip to the Irish National Stud, and a chance to see the beautiful mares and foals followed by a walkthrough of the famous Japanese Gardens. You will dine that evening at the Michelin-guided Brown Bear in Kildare and lay your head at the wonderful Carton house. An early night is needed as tomorrow is the day that your horse will run. While you will have entry to the parade ring, pre-run talks with your trainer and jockey, and fingers crossed for the winner’s enclosure, you will be watching the races from your private suite where you will be wined and dined in comfort. Wind down from your equestrian-packed itinerary with a relaxing spa treatment and whiskey tasting at your hotel, the perfect end to your tour.
