Some of Ireland’s fastest horses have been bred on the grounds of this government-sponsored stud farm
The breeding stallions are groomed, tested, exercised and bred here.
As you can see from this stud fee of 120,000 euros, this is big business in Ireland.
There is even a graveyard for some of the most celebrated horses.
In addition there are beautiful gardens and ponds here plus lots of birds.
