Horse racing at Bellewstown Racecourse, on the Hill of Crockafotha in Co. Meath, is beautifully situated with magnificent views of the Mountains of Mourne to the north and the Irish Sea to the east.

We do not know exactly when racing started in Bellewstown, but the first record of races appears in the August edition of the Dublin Gazette and the Weekly Courier in 1726. George Tandy, a former Mayor of Drogheda and brother of the famous Napper Tandy, persuaded King George III to sponsor a race at Bellewstown in 1780. The race was called His Majesty’s Plate and was valued at £100.

Bellewstown has two festivals; one in the first week of July and the other at the end of August (see Race Meetings). The races have always been associated with the smell of freshly mown hay and the taste of strawberries and cream.
