We are really looking forward to the return of the Easter Festival at Fairyhouse Racecourse, one of the most highly anticipated dates on the Irish Racing calendar. This exciting event will take place between from Sunday April 21st to Tuesday April 23rd in one of Ireland’s premier horse racing venues. Fitzers Catering are proud to be the food provider throughout the venue providing world class food and service throughout the weekend.


The highlight of the weekend is, of course, the Boyle Sports Irish Grand National which takes place on Monday 22nd April. This prestigious race encapsulates everything that is great about Irish racing, which is famed the world over. These days, the Irish Grand National is so much more than a horse race – it’s a festival of fun with various exciting events over the weekend to get the whole family involved. There is live music, a most stylish lady competition, children’s entertainment and of course the truly electric atmosphere created by hundreds of enthusiastic horse racing enthusiasts.


Whether you base yourself in one of the private luxury suites, the famous BobbyJo Bistro or the historic Arkle & Ballyhack Rooms, you’re sure to be captivated by the top-class racing and our hospitality teams will ensure you feel right at home. Each of these unique areas in the racecourse ground has one thing in common, Fitzers friendly and welcoming teams are there to take care of you.
