Punchestown Racecourse

You might have come for the races but when you want to celebrate your win, you’ll want to be staying somewhere convenient for the bright lights as well as the track.

Punchestown Racecourse is located just 25 minutes drive from Citywest Hotel. It’s the home of Irish Jumps Racing and plays host to the ‘Irish National Hunt Festival’ which is held over a five day period each April.

Horse Racing is very close to Irish hearts and Citywest is located close to some of the world’s most prestigious studs and trainers. Thoroughbreds raised in the area have distinguished themselves on race courses and arenas around the globe.

Punchestown has also played host to a number of historic music festivals. In 1982 Rory Gallaghaer, Phil Lynott, U2 and others performed to a crowd of 16,000. In more recent years AC/DC, Eminem, Jay Z and many more have played to crowds three times larger.

Whether you’re coming to see your favourite performer, or to see the favourite run, you couldn’t be better placed than Citywest Hotel.
