Winter Festival Day 1

Saturday 2nd December 2023

Experience the electrifying atmosphere on day one of the Fairyhouse Winter Festival. Fantastic racing with the highlight being a Grade B EasyFix Handicap Chase worth €50,000. With fantastic hospitality available, this action packed weekend of top class National Hunt racing is not to be missed. 

At this meeting last year Lord Lariat won the Ladies Handicap Chase for Joanna Walton and Dermot McLoughlin, Lord Lariat returned to Fairyhouse on Easter Monday to win the Boylesports Irish Grand National at the Fairyhouse Easter Festival.  

The Nice Guy, trained by Willie Mullins won the Willie Elliott Memorial Pro-Am NH Flat Race in 2021 before going on to win the Grade 1 Albert Bartlett Novice Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival and also the Grade 1 Irish Mirror Novice Hurdle at the Punchestown Festival. 

Remember to sport your sparkliest Christmas jumper for our Christmas Jumper Competition which also takes place on Day 1 of the Winter Festival. The competition took place for the first time in 2018 and attracted an array of colourful and fun Christmas jumpers. Competition prize details and the judges will be announced closer to the time.  

It also couldn't be easier to come racing to the Winter Festival with a free shuttle service from the M3 parkway and a direct coach service from Dublin (details closer to time)
