The Dublin Racing Festival returns to Leopardstown Racecourse in 2020 and promises to be bigger and better than ever. On Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd February you can enjoy a weekend of entertainment, both musical & racing, socialising and of course, world-class dining. There are many dining options over this exciting weekend, from casual meals to a bespoke dining experience for groups and individuals.
Dublin Racing Festival is one of the newest and earliest additions to Dublin’s packed festival schedule. From just €20.00 per person for entry, you’ll get to enjoy the best and brightest on Dublin’s thriving entertainment scene from comedy, music, sport and food. While the lineup has not been 100% confirmed for 2020 just yet, you can be sure it will be as impressive as past years line ups which included DJ Vogue Williams, Dublin legend Damian Dempsey, Delorentos, KILA and Stocktons Wing to name a few. Besides the racing, it’s a celebration of our culture, our music and of course some excellent dining experiences catered by Fitzers event catering Dublin.
There are many different hospitality and dining options at Dublin Racing Festival, catering to every taste and dietary requirement. Only the finest Irish produce is used throughout every style of catering provided by Fitzers, from the best cuts of Irish beef and chicken to the vegetables and garnishes that compliment your meal, we pride ourselves on culinary excellence. You may choose to enjoy a meal while enjoying a bird’s eye view from the floor to ceiling windows in the Leopardstown Pavilion. Alternatively, you may decide to dine in 1888 Restaurant with its laid-back modern charm and friendly attentive service. Some of the dining options are:
The Captain Quinn Experience at the 1888 Restaurant
The gorgeous 1888 Restaurant reminds us of the history of the racecourse which was built by Captain Quinn over 12 years ago. When you book the Captain Quinn Experience you are guaranteed some of the best seats in the house at a reserved table which is held for you for the entire day. You’ll have a stunning view across the entire racetrack so no need to strain to see the results on a screen. You’ll also enjoy a dedicated waiting service, a race programme, TOTE betting facilities and of course a gourmet Á La Carte Menu catered by Fitzers.
Adult €175 | Child €87.50
Molly Malone's Banquet at the Pavilion
Molly Malone’s Banquet is a slightly more casual approach to dining which allows you to enjoy the finest Irish Cuisine in beautiful surrounds with floor to ceiling glass windows allowing a view over the stadium grounds and racecourse. It’s an ideal location for families, friends, and colleagues to dine and enjoy the views while avoiding the cool February weather. Dining at the Pavilion includes your admission fee to the racecourse, a race programme, Tipster/MC and TOTE Betting facilities. Most importantly, you’ll get to enjoy a three-course gourmet buffet-style meal and a reserved table in the Leopardstown Pavilion for the day.
