Having celebrated its half century in 2018, the family run Goresbridge Horse
Sales in Co Kilkenny continues to hold its place as Ireland’s biggest and most
successful sport and leisure horse auction. Ideally situated in the heart of
Ireland’s horse breeding country, the purpose-built complex stages seven
performance sales throughout the year.
Among these is the flagship six-day fixture in early September, which offers
hundreds of horses from the age of three and is probably the largest of its genre
Goresbridge sales are situated in Co Kilkenny in the south of Ireland and are easily accessible from Dublin, Cork and Waterford airports. For those who prefer to travel by ferry, Rosslare is only an hour’s drive, while Dublin Port or Dun Laoghaire are within two hours. Sometimes the sales can finish late, so if you are interested in a late lot, it may advisable to arrange your homeward journey for the following day.
The success of any sales company ultimately relies on its graduates, and in this regard Goresbridge is second to none. In the past four decades, graduates have competed at the highest level and boast some enviable statistics.
