    In 2017, a huge crowd of 15,804 was bathed in sunshine and enjoyed one of the most exciting BoyleSports Irish Grand National winners for many years at Fairyhouse, as they cheered home the winner Our Duke, trained by Jessica Harrington and ridden by Robbie Power in what was probably one of the most impressive wins for years over the grueling course of 3 miles and 5 furlongs. 2017 sees the prize fund of the race increase significantly, with €500,000 now on the line, the great race is sure to attract another stellar cast. 

  • Music

    The BoyleSports Irish Grand National and the Easter Festival at Fairyhouse is about much more than the outstanding racing. There is great entertainment all weekend long. In 2016 the brilliant Paddy Casey took to the stage after racing to wow the crowds on Easter Monday and Sharon Shannon took to the stage on Easter Sunday. In 2018 The Kilkennys played us out with a raucous set to keep the party going long after the racing was finished and we loved them so much they will be back for 2019 on both Easter Sunday and Easter Monday! There is also music in our hospitality areas with local favourite and Eurovision veteran Eamonn Toal playing to guests in the Bobbyjo Bistro and different acts playing in both the Festival Marquee and the Arkle/Ballyhack Rooms.

    The racing is complemented with these great musical acts and a real party atmosphere is enjoyed by all in attendance.
