Formed in 2012 originally in partnership with The Curragh Racecourse, we were born from our love of horse racing and the want to deliver a first class guest experience to those we look after. Due to the success of this project and the need to seperate the business ideals, Race and Stay™ and Curragh Hospitality™ became registered trading names of an independent company, Enigma Marketing Limited, (Registered in Ireland No: 524249). We are a 100% Irish owned company with our Registered Office in Roscommon and our Operational Office in Kilcullen, not far from The Curragh Racecourse.
From our conception we grew quickly and are now the largest, by some way, Horse Racing Tour and Guest Management company in Ireland. In 2019 we managed in excess of 3,000 Race and Stay, Ticket and Hospitality guests. We booked more than 3,000 room nights in local and national hotels and also transported and managed over 2,000 guests for a variety of tour agents worldwide.
Our clients come from all countries and all occupations. We have party groups, social and racing clubs, tour agent’s guests, event companies, local, national and international businesses, singles, couples, friend’s group’s, and VIP guests who regularly book with us.
Recently, and due to the success of Race and Stay, we have diversified into the Golf Tourism Market in Ireland and now own Irish Masters and Play and Stay, two businesses dedicated to Golf event management and tours. From January 1st 2021 we will move to the next chapter of our history by becoming IRISH MASTERS EVENTS Limited, both to better manage the three main businesses we have and also to bring together all of our strengths and buying power to give you, our guest, a better experience and value for money.
