There are Guided Tours of The National Stud every day usually at 11.00a.m., 12.00 noon, 2.00p.m., 3.00 p.m. and 4.00 p.m. The Tour lasts about 35 minutes and you should allow another 45 minutes to see the Museum, and take a walk down the Tully Walk to see any mares and foals that might be out. In the main yard there is a video showing 'The Birth of a Foal'. It lasts about 10 minutes and was actually made on the Stud.

The Japanese Gardens are in the grounds and you need about 20 minutes to walk around and read the self-guide leaflet, which tells of 'The Life of Man' from The Cradle to the Grave.
