Ireland Rugby Weekend

Cheltenham Gold Cup


Thursday 16th to Saturday 18th March, 2017

£225 per person

Cheltenham is at the heart of almost every aspect of Jump racing. It’s a natural amphitheater of excellence that really can elevate you to a sporting high. Hundreds of thousands of racing fans visit every year but the Cheltenham Gold Cup is the highlight of the entire Jump racing season. This is the place where owners, trainers, jockeys, stable staff and breeders dream of having winners. It's the undulations of the course, the test of the fences and hurdles and the fight to the finish up the legendary Cheltenham hill that combine to test the true strength of any thoroughbred racehorse and rider. Whether you have a keen interest in the races or not, you don’t need to be an expert to have the time of your life.

We depart Crymych in the early afternoon and head east to Cheltenham mid-afternoon to the hotel, in the small village of Kings Coughton.

We will spend the day at the Cheltenham races, watching some of the most important races. The atmosphere will be one to remember. We will then head back to the hotel in the early evening, hopefully with plenty of winnings in hand!

We depart for the journey home to Crymych.


Stay at the Kings Court Hotel, in the heart of Shakespeare country, in the small village of Kings Coughton, just seven miles from Stratford-upon-Avon. This hotel boasts a relaxed and charming atmosphere set in gorgeous surroundings with friendly staff and individually styled rooms.
