Thurles’ Horse & Jockey Hotel adapts to ever-changing challenges whilst still delivering core values of tradition, passion and warmth

The iconic hotel featured on Virgin Media One’s Ireland AM as part of their on-going #BackingBusiness Campaign


Thursday, Oct. 8th: Thurles’ Horse & Jockey Hotel has been known as one of Ireland's great meeting places for over 250 years. From small beginnings as a historic roadside tavern, they have grown into the large hotel complex that you can find in the heart of Tipperary today.


Through times of great expansion, including 67 bedrooms, spa, leisure centre and an on-site bakery, they have managed to hold on to the welcoming warm atmosphere through the generations. The Egan family, along with their wonderful, professional team are on-hand to look after you while always embracing their core values of tradition, passion and warmth.


As part of Virgin Media’s on-going support of Irish businesses through their #BackingBusiness campaign, The Horse & Jockey Hotel featured on this morning’s Ireland AM broadcast on Virgin Media One. The hotel is the perfect getaway for anyone from the county looking to escape for a weekend.


Jodie Gilpin, Marketing Manager at The Horse & Jockey, said: “As the Horse & Jockey Hotel continues to navigate their way through such challenging times, there is always a reminder that the people are what make our business what it is.


We are delighted to be a part of the Virgin Media Backing Business and hope in the future that we can all see business return to a new normal, the pandemic may continue but our core values remain the same with tradition, passion and warmth. A warm welcome awaits at the Horse & Jockey Hotel.”
