The Leopardstown Christmas Festival offers an exhilarating day out for sporting fans, socialites and thrill-seekers alike. Held over four days in December starting on St. Stephen’s Day, an impressive racing programme guarantees the best of National Hunt racing while Leopardstown’s extensive facilities have become traditional hotspots for post-Christmas get-togethers.

There are many highlights over the course of the four days, including seven Grade 1 races featuring The Paddy Power Steeplechase and Paddy Power Future Champions Hurdle, Savills Chase and Matheson Hurdle.
