The 2017 Festival runs from Tuesday 25th to Saturday 29th April 2017.
The Punchestown Festival is one of the highlights of the Irish sporting and social calendar. The special combination of thrilling sporting action, brilliant live entertainment, delicious food and drink, family fun, stunning glamour or casual comfort is unequalled thanks to the unique Punchestown Festival atmosphere.
The Punchestown Festival is considered the ‘Grand Finale’ of the jump season with top class horses, trainers and jockeys from both sides of the Irish sea converging on the Kildare venue to settle scores and confirm reputations. The quality of racing is unrivalled with a total of 12 Grade 1 contests taking place. It's a "must see" for any racing fan.
