Horse Museum

This former groom's home and array of stallion boxes is now a sleek museum showcasing the Stud's illustrious history and inhabitants. An ongoing exhibition traces the Stud's - and Ireland's - deep-rooted love of horse racing. A skeleton of racehorse legend Arkle and a 10min video showing "The Birth of a Foal" made at the Stud are among the museum's must-sees.
