Punchestown Course Guide

Considered by many as the home of National Hunt racing in Ireland, Punchestown has several meetings throughout the season culminating in the five-day Punchestown Festival in the Spring (late April).

It has, of course, the unique ‘banks’ cross country course and hosts the cream of national hunt racing throughout the October to June season.

The John Durkan Memorial Chase is a popular race, the Grade 1 Chase attracts some top-class types with previous winning honours going to the likes of Djakadam (x2), Sizing John, Min (x3) and Allaho.

For fans of the Grand National, Punchestown also hosts a Grand National Trial in February, two months before the big race itself not many of the winners go on to run at Aintree next time out, the last to do so was Dounikos in 2019 who failed to finish the race.

Each season the Racing Fixtures at Punchestown are published and available in advance so you can plan either if you want to go racing at Punchestown or plan your betting. The dates of the Punchestown Festival and ticket information will also be available.
