Fairyhouse are delighted to announce a new pricing structure for the remainder of 2009.

Highlights of the new pricing structure will see admission to the Winter Festival dropping to just €15 on Saturday, 28 November and €20 on Sunday, 29 November, representing a saving of almost 20% on 2008 prices.

Mid-week fixtures will also drop from €15 to €10 for adults (Wednesday, 4 November and Wednesday, 2 December). OAP and student concessionary rates remain at €10 for all meetings, while under 16s are free to all meetings.

Caroline Gray, General Manager of Fairyhouse Racecourse commented: 'We are delighted to announce the price cuts which represent savings of almost 20% on 2008 levels. We understand that some of our loyal customers are being badly affected by the economic downturn and hope that this measure will in some way recognize and reward their loyalty to Fairyhouse.

Equally, we hope that the new reduced prices will encourage new customers to experience the thrill of National Hunt racing at Fairyhouse for the 2009 season.

The highlight will be the Winter Festival on 28/29 November, featuring three Grade 1 races on the Sunday, sponsored by Bar One Racing. In addition, a further 20% discount is available for customers who book online on www.fairyhouseracecourse.ie.
