Punchestown Course Facilities

Restaurants and Bars

The Punchestown course complex includes several restaurants and bars, from the formal Panoramic Restaurant to very casual self-service and pub meal options.

The Panoramic Restaurant provides excellent views of the racecourse, and offers full four-course menus with a wide choice of dishes. Especially for the days of the Punchestown Festival, it’s advisable to make early bookings. Packages are available for groups.

De Robeck Restaurant is a buffet restaurant that overlooks the parade ring. It includes its own bar and tote facilities, and – like the Panoramic Restaurant – accepts bookings.

A self-service restaurant that offers a range of hot and cold meals is situated adjacent to the parade ring.

Several bars are open during the Punchestown Festival. Among these, the La Touche Bar and the Double Bank Bar are located on the ground level of the main grandstand. The Hunt Stand Bar is located on the second level of the main grandstand, and serves hot and cold snacks. The popular Madigan’s Bar is located next to the Owners and Trainers Bar, behind the Panoramic Stand.

Punchestown course now also includes the Tote Sports Lounge, a new sports bar located on the second level of the main grandstand. The bar includes a wall of wide-screen televisions for watching televised sports events.
