Down Royal racecourse is very close to the pub and a good place to walk your dog. A lot of the middle of the track is taken up by a golf course, so do be careful of any flying balls as you walk along. The course is particularly famous for the Ladbrokes Champion Chase and the Ulster Derby. Expect plenty of people on race days.
