Punchestown Festival Races is one of the highlights in the racing calendar and this year’s festival looks to be even better and bigger than ever. With 5 exciting days of the festival taking place from the 24th to the 28th of April, it’s an event not to be missed.

The last day of the festival is sure to draw crowds from far and wide with The AES Festival Family Day taking place on Saturday 28th of April. There’s a lot to see and do with the Junior Jockey Fun Club and you will also find bouncy castles, face painting and much more to keep the little ones occupied.

If horse racing is not your thing, don’t worry, there is also the Best Dressed Ladies Competition to consider, with plenty of competition every year, you will need to make sure that you put your best foot forward to make sure you’re a shoe in for the win. You will also find plenty of bars to keep the thirst away and a shopping village for a well-deserved spot of retail therapy.
