The Punchestown Irish National Hunt Festival is a weekend to relish on the Irish sporting calendar.
The last blowout of the jump racing season, it is a chance for people to settle scores, on and off the track. On the track, you will see some of the best equestrian talent of the season fight it out in five Grade 1 races, including the Champion Chase, the Champion Novice Hurdle and the Growse Novice Chase.
Off the racecourse, ladies day will give Ireland’s best-heeled women an opportunity to see who really is top hat, while the festival atmosphere will consume your senses. Champagne corks will be popped, delicious food gorged upon, and voices made hoarse in the stands.
This April racing bonanza is one of the most exciting racing festivals in the country. Whether you rock up in wellies or fully primped for the fierce ladies’ day competition, just be there, ready to await the photo-finish in consecutive nailbiters.
