The entrance at Tullaghansleek Stud carries the date 1867. It is one of Ireland's oldest family-owned and managed Studs. It is remarkable to think we have served clients in the nineteenth, twentieth and twenty-first centuries. An incredible seven generations of the Carey family have and continue to live on this equine establishment; steeped in Ireland's history of producing quality stock. Tullaghansleek Stud is an institution of equine history that is keenly reflected through its natural built stone walls that surround nearly two hundred and thirty acres and its remarkable 2,500BC cave which lies at the entrance to the Stud. The Stud is situated in the heart of Ireland which is noted for its lush green grass with its limestone rich soil which combine with other natural conditions to produce the depth of bone that is the distinguishing feature of the Irish bred horses.
Throughout the generations, we have received mares from all over Ireland. In recent decade's, mares have been sent across from the U.K. and France. In keeping with modern technology, Tullaghansleek Stud were one of the first Irish Stud farms to bring our equine expertise into the new millennium through our purpose built Equine A.I. Laboratory and Station. In the last couple of years, we have been supplying breeders in the U.K. and mainland Europe with semen from our team of successful Stallions.
Tullaghansleek Stud caters for all kinds of breeders as reflected in their team of Stallions that are representative of the Thoroughbred, Irish Draught, Conemara Pony and Sports Horse.
