• About Punchestown

    Punchestown is renowned the world over as the home of National Hunt (jump) racing in Ireland. The five-day Irish National Hunt Festival at the end of April each year is the culmination of the National Hunt season and the meeting features no fewer than 12 Grade 1 races. Throughout the season, Punchestown showcases the best of jumps racing beginning with the Grade 1 Morgiana Hurdle in November and the Grade 1 John Durkan Memorial Chase the following month. Races such as the La Touche Cup and the Ladies Cup provide great spectacle as they are run over Punchestown's cross-county course, unique in Ireland, which is often referred to as the banks course.  The Punchestown season runs from mid-October to June and caters for National Hunt racing only.
