The Galway Festival doesn't always have the best horses. But I'll tell you what you'll get: the best craic! Great day at the races, great atmosphere, great night out afterwards. So if you just want a bit of a party with your racing, I would certainly suggest Galway.
Leopardstown is on the up. The racecourse improves all the time... new grandstand etc. And, as you'll have seen in recent times, the atmosphere at Leopardstown is growing. I would definitely recommend it.
At the Punchestown Festival, if you're mixing racing and atmosphere (and, of course, Punchestown hosts some great Grade 1 action), you're going to have a good time!
