DOLLANSTOWN STUD & ESTATE
Dollanstown Stud & Estate is an equestrian, agricultural and residential estate extending
to about 364 acres (147 hectares) in total. It is situated in an area of
Ireland which is famed worldwide for its equestrianism and combined with its
excellent facilities, places Dollanstown in the premier league of country
estates and stud farms in the country.
The equestrianism at Dollanstown is the key feature with 71
stables spread over five yards, an all-weather gallop, two outdoor arenas, an
indoor arena, a horse walker and an event course.
Reknowned horse trainer, Peter Purcell Gilpin, was once
based at Dollanstown and sent out many notable winners, including two Derby
winners and the mare, Pretty Polly, winner of 22 races. In 1954, the estate was
sold to Dr and Mme Plesch, breeders of 1961 Derby hero Psidium and Arc de
Triumph victor Sassafras.
