Punchestown Festival


If there were ever another racing fixture that comes close to the supremacy of the Cheltenham Festival; and the joy it brings to so many racing fans, it would have to be none other than the Punchestown Festival. Tuesday 28th April would have marked the start of this year’s festival which has sadly been cancelled, as well as many other racing fixtures we were all so eagerly looking forward to but, let us reflect on what makes it such a fantastic Racing Break and look forward to its return in 2021...

Upcoming packages to look forward to in 2021


With what is proving to be quite a testing and tricky time for us all, we want to shake away the doom and gloom with some exciting racing trips and packages to look forward to come 2021 when things return back to normal…

Let’s start from the beginning



If horse racing at its best is what you are looking for, Ireland is certainly the place to find it. For so many years, Ireland has been a dominant force on the world's racing stage, enjoying fantastic success and indeed, punching well above its weight in terms of breeding and racing success.

But nothing compares to a day at the races in Ireland. With close to 360 race meetings annually, the racegoer is spoilt for choice. Every racecourse is different, offering an experience that is unique to Ireland. And the next big day out is just around the corner.

For many, nothing beats a day at the Curragh, Leopardstown or Punchestown, the atmosphere of the seven-day Galway festival or the end-of-summer extravaganza at Listowel. For others, in search of a more relaxing experience, it could be an afternoon or evening at beautiful Gowran Park or Killarney.

Irish racecourses are visited by over 1.3m people every year. It's easy to get involved, you never know who you might meet and whether you back a winner or not, it's long odds-on that you will have a day to remember.

Derby Sale and May Store Sale - Overseas Travel Update



As previously announced Tattersalls Ireland, HRI, ITM and Goffs submitted protocols to NPHET (National Public Health Emergency Team) to allow overseas purchasers to attend the sales in Ireland.

Because of the increased level of new cases, and a concern in relation to the spread of Covid-19, we have been informed that permission to use the protocols to bring in overseas purchasers has not been granted, therefore the current guidelines regarding travel to Ireland will apply for both the Derby Sale and May Store Sale.
