Four great days and four great reasons to go to Leopardstown this Christmas! The Twelve Days of Christmas would not be the same without the Four Days of Leopardstown. When was the last time you had a day that really gripped you? That made your pulse quicken and warmed your heart? If you can't remember, it's time to plan your day out at the Leopardstown Christmas Festival this December.

You will see some of the best horses from Ireland and Britain in action at the top level of jumps racing, out in the fresh Leopardstown air in the company of a famously convivial crowd. Stephen's Day is Racing Post Day. This is the day when Dublin's party spirit sparks back to life after the brief respite of Christmas Day. Youth mingles happily with the experienced race goer and the stars and celebrities come out to share the experience.

On the 27th, mingle and meet with Ireland's most knowledgeable punters on Paddy Power Day when town meets country and the steeplechasers show what a really useful Christmas jumper looks like! The Lexus Chase, on 28 December, is one of the most prestigious races in the calendar and draws in racing enthusiasts from all over Ireland and Britain. This is also Ladies Day where winter racing fashion has an elegance and style quite different to the other seasons. The final day is Gathering Day featuring the Ryanair Hurdle, an ideal day to bring the family racing.
