The Irish National Stud

Racehorses are conceived, born and raised on Tully’s famous stud farm, which has long been and continues to be the source of thoroughbred champions.

Stars of the show on the stud farm are the¬†six stallions, whose performances on the track as racehorses have enabled them to spend the years of their retirement living a life that many would envy. Some of racing’s most successful and regally-bred mares are sent to Tully to be covered by the stallions, the outcome of their encounters being the foals who never fail to enthral visitors.

The farm, purchased by Colonel William Hall Walker at the turn of the 20th century, is now owned by the Irish people but is run as a commercial entity, its management working hard tomaintain its competitiveness in a major global industry in which Ireland has long played a leading role alongside Britain, France, the USA and Australia.
