Location: Punchestown Racecourse, Punchestown, Naas, Kildare

The Punchestown Festival is one of the most important National Hunt meets in the Irish racing calendar. However, it's not just one of the summits of the sporting calendar, it is also a highlight of the social calendar each year. The Punchestown Festival is the grand finale for the jump season, and as a result it draws the best horses, jockeys, and trainers to Kildare for one last showdown for the season. There are 12 Grade One races including the La Touche Cup which is contested over a cross-country course and is always a crowd favourite. Away from the race course, the festival is buzzing with glamour and fun, with a number of special hospitality packages available if you want to get the full Punchestown experience. Tickets €30 - €50
