THOROUGHBRED BUILDING

Naas Racecourse has unveiled its brand new ‘Feature Building’ at its recent National Hunt race meeting.

The new Feature Building was created as part of a €3.2 million HRI Capital Development Scheme which commenced last year. It is an unusual structure; cylindrical in shape, it boasts wrap around glass and several balconies which snake around the building offering incredible views to the track and adjacent Parade Ring. Located just between the Grand Stand and Parade Ring the Feature Building will house a public sports bar on the ground floor while a stunning Owners and Trainers Lounge is located on the first floor. The Owners and Trainers Lounge enjoys 180-degree views of the track making it one of the world’s premier vantage points to view steeds in motion.

It was designed by architects and design consultants, Turnburry Design Consultants in London, who have a speciality in racecourse design and is believed to be the only racecourse building of its kind in Britain and Ireland. The innovative cylindrical design allows for greater vantage points for the general racing public and owners and trainers alike. Naas Racecourse itself is a boutique style track- everything is easily accessible, and spectators can get up close to the action which results in an engaging and exciting racing experience.
