The Dublin Horse Show remains one of the biggest dates in the national and international equestrian calendars’ situated only 10 minutes from the heart of the capital city Dublin. This glorious and rich equine tradition is packed into a five-day extravaganza of all things horses in the month of  August in Ballsbridge.

The first show was held in 1864 under the auspices of the Society but organised by the Royal Agricultural Society of Ireland where the show was held on the grounds of the Duke of Leinster’s Dublin Residence, Leinster House at Merrion Square.

The show relocated to a Greenfield site in Ballsbridge 1881. Each year as one of Ireland’s largest events, it welcomes tens of thousands of Irish and international visitors to enjoy a great week of equestrianism at the beautiful historic grounds of the Royal Dublin Society (RDS).  Enjoy as a spectator or buyer some of the very best of Traditional Irish Horses at Dublin.  Meet the breeders and producers and learn about old Irish bloodlines, the history of the TIH and why the Traditional Irish Horse with their 2000 years of history is still a world class leading modern performance horse.
