With a relaxed and informal feel to it, the emphasis is all about the fun, and above all the Racecourse wants you to stay and enjoy yourself all day and on into the evening.

A typical Raceday Itinerary for the Punchestown Festival would be as follows: (please note times may be subject to change).

First Race 3.40 pm

Last Race 7.15 pm
