Down Royal Racecourse has brought the "Sport of Kings" to generations of people in Ulster since the 17th Century and is proud to boast some of the most modern facilities for any racegoer.

Since the early 1990's the racecourse has undertaken major development and modernisation. Phase 1 in 1993 saw the completion of a new Grandstand which incorporated fourteen Corporate Boxes, VIP Hospitality Suite, Public Bar and an elevated viewing area overlooking the track and finish post.
