Beautiful spot, takes in the Japanese Gardens as well. See some of the best horses in the world. Spring is fouling time if you like the cuteness. Good restaurant, price is a bit high. Good tours by friendly guides

I visited here while on a guided tour of Ireland a few years ago. Absolutely beautiful location away from the larger urban centres. Beautiful scenery with many beautiful horses to see. The gardens were also a sight to behold.
For a fun day out with the family, the national stud is an excellent choice. Beautiful scenery, a playground, friendly horses. Four stars only because of the price.
For horse lovers and racing fans, this place is a must do. We spent a half a day here going through the museum, barns, and gardens. In the US, we have something similar at Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, but there is definitely more to do here. Certainly the gardens are an added bonus.
Fantastic way to spend a day. Also, visit the Japanese Gardens.
