And they’re off…..Punchestown Festival 2024

The starting pistol was heard on Tues 30th April at Punchestown Racecourse launching the eagerly awaited Punchestown Festival 2024. With an impressive prize fund of over €3.5million across forty races the festival attracted visitors from across Ireland, the UK, Canada and as far away as Australia. The overall attendance at the festival this year was 118,318!

In addition to the horseracing there was a great combination of live entertainment, delicious food and premium drinks in the pavilions and bars across the venue. The BTI Events team spent several days onsite installing the many coldrooms, beer cooling and dispense systems to ensure the thirsty punters were not disappointed.

Conor O’Neill, CEO Punchestown commented “We took a big risk this year and made many substantial changes which thankfully paid off and despite the inclement weather, we’ve enjoyed an absolute beano! Whether you’re 5 or 95 there has been something for everyone here at Punchestown this week and that’s what it’s all about! People make Punchestown and we’re so grateful to our sponsors, many stakeholders and everyone who came along to support us! This afternoon I’m most proud of our remarkable team, their unwavering commitment and hard work has been rewarded and I’m delighted for everyone!”
