With just eight weeks to go to the 2019 Punchestown Festival the racecourse team are excited to welcome new sponsor Osprey Hotel to the home of Irish jump racing. The centre piece of the partnership, Osprey Avenue, is a new look boutique shopping venue with a wonderful selection of fashion, art, millinery and accessories on offer across all five days of the festival, Tuesday 30th April to Saturday 4th May.
To celebrate the first sponsorship at Punchestown, Osprey Hotel are pulling out all the stops and providing a fantastic week of hospitality and entertainment both in advance of and after racing each day at the four star venue located in Devoy Quarter, Naas. New for 2019 is the very appetising Bottomless Bubbles & Brunch hosted in the stylish Herald & Devoy restaurant. This package is priced at €32 per person and can be pre-booked with the hotel. There will be two sittings at 11.30am and 1.30pm each day with a complimentary shuttle bus service to solve any transport queries. At 12.30pm from Tuesday to Friday top jockey Robert ‘Puppy’ Power and BoyleSports Leon Blanche will be on hand to provide expert tips whilst further onsite attractions at Osprey Hotel such as the new Gin Garden, Blow Dry Bar and Express Nail Bar will ensure all festival goers are fully informed and race day ready!
Perhaps the highlight of Osprey Hotel’s action packed entertainment programme will take place on Friday 3rd May when the Ultimate Festival Finale Party will entertain a full house of festival goers. Guest D.J’s and the ever popular Manilla Strings will entertain in the lobby while the ticket only Punchestown Party featuring Poplife, D.J. and finger food will take place in the ballroom.
Looking forward to an exciting festival week Osprey Sales and Marketing Manager Catherine Bunn said “Now is the ideal time for Osprey to team up with Punchestown as the hotel has benefited from a major investment programme which will be showcased festival week. Our on-course presence with Osprey Avenue together with pre and post racing entertainment means Osprey will be your one stop Festival venue. Of course with such a busy race week schedule it’s important to look after yourself so guests and visitors alike can enjoy the urban retreat that is Osprey Spa where €1.4 million has been invested. A wonderful treatment is an ideal opportunity to ready yourself for a fun packed few days of racing, music, delicious food and the party atmosphere!”
Janet Creighton, Punchestown Commercial Manager welcomed Osprey Hotel “We look forward to welcoming around 130,000 visitors to Punchestown in just eight weeks time and whilst we can do our best to ensure they have a great day at the track it is our hotel partners that play an intrinsic role by providing top class hospitality before and after racing. Osprey Hotel is a wonderful venue located just minutes from Punchestown and their festival entertainment programme is packed to the brim. Having toured the Osprey Spa it is somewhere I will definitely be visiting for a treat after a hectic festival week!”
