The Sun Shines on Family Fun at Leopardstown

    Leopardstown Racecourse launches their Family Fun Racedays in Association with the Children’s Sunshine Home and LauraLynn House

    Leopardstown Racecourse today launched a series of Family Fun Racedays which will take place this year in association with the Children’s Sunshine Home and LauraLynn House.

    The Family Fun Racedays coincide with the opening three meetings of the Leopardstown flat season, the 1000 & 2000 Guineas Trials, The Ballysax Stakes and the Derrinstown Stud Derby Trial. The aim of these events is to provide the perfect day out for families, to support and raise awareness for the Children’s Sunshine Home and LauraLynn House and to introduce the local community to racing at Leopardstown

    The Family Fun Racedays are an integral part of the racing calendar at Leopardstown and will take place this year on three Sundays afternoons, 28th March, 18th April and 9th May. A percentage of all admissions will go directly to the Children’s Sunshine Home and LauraLynn House. Tickets are €15 per adult and all Children under 14 are free.

    The Family entertainment will take place in the Family Fun House which will be located in the main enclosure, ensuring that Families stay close to the racing action. Activities and entertainment will include face painters, balloon modellers, a DJ, a magician, a range of exciting inflatables, Front Runner Racing Club, SNAG Golf and much more. The Front Runner Racing Club will introduce both children and their parents to the world of horseracing in a fun and interactive way.

    The Family Munch Lunch was first introduced last year and proved to be a great success. Located in the Leopardstown Pavilion the Family Much Lunch includes adult admission to the event, a two course lunch and a reserved table for the day. The Children’s menu includes a main course, dessert and either a soft drink or a juice and is just €6.50. The Family Munch Lunch can be pre-booked on or by calling the Leopardstown office (01) 2890500.

    Ciaran Conroy Commercial Manager Leopardstown Racecourse said: – “We are delighted to announce our partnership with the Children’s Sunshine Home and LauraLynn House. It is a wonderful cause and we are really pleased to be able to support our closest neighbour through the Family Fun Racedays.
