The Irish National Stud & Gardens will re-open on a phased basis starting from Monday May 25th with Annual Members only being allowed to visit. The site will be closed to the general public until further notice.
All visits to the Irish National Stud & Gardens must be pre-booked, by contacting the reservations team via email on firstname.lastname@example.org or via phone on +353 (0) 45 521617 .
The grounds will be open from 10:00am – 16:00pm during this period for 7 days a week. The playground, gift shop and museum will remain closed until further notice. The restaurant will be limited to take-away hot and cold beverages.
Visitors to the attraction will be expected to fully comply with all public health advice, especially with regards to hand hygiene, cough etiquette and social distancing. The Irish National Stud & Gardens have taken significant measures around the site, following government public health advice protocols to help with this. The measures adopted are for the safety of visitors and staff in the hope of a wider resumption of services in the near future.
From Monday 25th May there will be over 400 acres opened up to Annual Members, to get out in the fresh air in safe surroundings. The gardens are in full bloom, the fairies have returned in a brand-new walking trail and there are plenty of new-born foals to meet with over 250 born this year.
Tourism Development Manager David Wardell said, “we are beginning, slowly, to take the first steps towards a resumption of our full services, starting with our Annual Members from 25th May. We ask for your patience and co-operation as we work towards welcoming you back to enjoy the great outdoors in a safe and friendly environment.”
