Best Dressed

The Bollinger Best Dressed competition returns  from Tuesday 26th to Ladies Day on Friday 29th April.  


What To Wear?

Smart casual and smarter is advised!  Although the style stakes are high we recommend you keep warm as it is Ireland at the end of April and anything can happen! There is a cloakroom service onsite. It is located on ground level of the panoramic stand beside the horse walk.  


Cashback & Contactless

There will be contactless payment available but we always advise to arrive prepared with some cash. There is an ATM on site but don't be the one who misses their bet by standing in the queue as your tip of the day crosses the line in front!
