Curragh, Co. Kildare

The Curragh in County Kildare is synonymous with the valuable and world famous horse racing industry in Ireland. Much of the thoroughbred industry centers around the Curragh which is a grassy plain in County Kildare that stretches unfenced for over 5000 acres. It is home to many training yards and studs and every morning horses can be seen going through their paces on the gallops. Most of the major flatraces in Ireland including the Irish Derby take place at the Curragh Racecourse just east of Kildare town.

The area is also renowned for its many top-class golf courses as well as quality angling which is to be found along the river Liffey.
