We are delighted to announce that this year, Osprey Hotel is partnering with the amazing Punchestown Festival to bring you a fantastic week of entertainment and hospitality both before and after the exciting racing days in Punchestown. With just a few weeks to go until the festival, which runs from Tuesday 30 April to Saturday 4 May, now is a great time to plan your trip.
Punchestown Racecourse is a world-renowned Irish course set just 15-minutes from Osprey Hotel, Country Kildare. It’s known as the home of Irish Jumps Racing and has the only cross country banks course in Ireland. It’s also home to the famous Punchestown Festival, a major horse racing festival in the Irish National Hunt Season. Each year the festival draws crowds of up to 130,000 visitors, all looking to win big and enjoy a variety of entertainment. We are delighted and honoured to partner with this prestigious festival and hope this is the beginning of a wonderful ongoing relationship.
This year, to celebrate the partnership, Osprey Hotel is offering Bottomless Bubbles & Brunch in our stylish restaurant Herald and Devoy. The brunch will have two sittings, 11.30am and 1.30pm each day, and tickets cost just €32.00 each. We will even be providing a shuttle bus service to take you to and from the racecourse.
We’re not only offering this fabulous brunch but from Tuesday to Friday from 12.30 we will have top jockey Robert ‘Puppy’ Power and Boyle Sports Leon Blanche to give their best tips and advice throughout the afternoon. As well as this, Osprey Hotel has a Gin Garden, Blow Dry Bar and Express Nail Bar so all of our guests can go to races looking and feeling great.
The pièce de résistance of the entire festival partnership will be our Ultimate Festival Finale Party on 3rd May where we are ready to entertain and delight all of our guests and festival goers. We will have a host of guest DJ’s and fantastic string band Manilla Strings entertaining the lobby. If you want to carry on dancing into the evening, get yourself some tickets for the Punchestown Party in our Ballroom where you will enjoy finger food and entertainment from the hugely popular band Poplife. We are excited to celebrate this wonderful festival with a really fun-filled evening!
One of the highlights of your Punchestown experience is sure to be the Osprey Avenue. We have designed a new-look shopping venue for you to peruse and purchase some of the finest Irish fashion, art, millinery and accessories right on the course. Osprey Avenue will be open across the five days of the festival so you can browse in your own time and return with a lasting keepsake of these five fabulous days.
