Our Stud Farm

Bective Stud is a stud farm in Meath and was set up in 2016 and has been developed over the last 4 years. We now have 50+ horses made up of racing thoroughbreds, mares, foals and yearlings. We have 40+ stables, a 3.5 furlong gallop, 7 Winter Paddocks, a lunge ring, a 6 horse walker and 18 grazing paddocks. We continue to develop the stud to ensure we provide the best facilities for our horses.


Our accommodation consists of 5 luxurious developed apartments. They can be rented out and are self-catering facilities with everything included so that you can enjoy your stay. They are located in the midst of our stud farm. On one side they overlook the stables and stunning full sized racing horse water feature and on the other they overlook the beautiful Val’s Garden. Check out our individual rooms for booking details.

Our Gardens & Walks

Over the last few years we have transformed the overgrown areas and planted new lawns while developing walks and gardens in parallel. Val’s Garden was completed in 2021 and is for our patrons to relax and enjoy. It consists of various water features, a round tree seating area, a pit fire and a Gazebo library where you can sit and read a book in tranquillity.

Welcome to Bective Stud – a Stud Farm in Meath

The Home of the Unforgettable Experience

Bective House is a stud farm in Meath and is located on the banks of the river Boyne and the Estate has 180 acres. The house lies midway between Navan and Trim and is easily accessible from the Town Centres.

Bective House is in an understated architectural style in the spirit of Francis Johnston. Bective house is surrounded by a wide expanse of parkland, dotted with clumps of trees.

The plantation of these trees and creation of parkland led to the walling in of the demesne and the re-routing of the Trim Navan road. Most of these trees are still standing today. Impressive ashlar gateways were erected at each entrance to the estate with gate lodges at each end and an additional number of houses to cater for workers on the estate.

Stunning Horses
Bective House has long been associated with Equestrian and Hunting going back to the 19th Century and the famous Polo Player Charles Sumner Bird. When Charles bought Bective, it is believed he was very active in the breeding of horses and racing horses at Bective House.

In the early 1800’s the house was famous locally for Fox Hunting and regularly the hunt, led by the Hunt Master, started off from Bective House. Today Bective estate still houses the ‘Meath foxhounds’ for local hunting.
