Goffs Commit to Owners Experience at Punchestown

Goffs is delighted to announce that it will sponsor the new Owners and Trainers Lounge at Punchestown for the 2018 festival and forthcoming season.


Occupying prime property on the first floor of the new €4 million Hunt Stand, the Goffs Owners and Trainers Lounge will play host to around 250 guests each day of this month’s Punchestown Festival.  Connections with runners are invited to enjoy hospitality in the Goffs Owners and Trainers Lounge, where a delicious artisan buffet lunch will be prepared and served by the Turning Tables catering team led by Head Chef Fergal Nugent.  


The 260 square metre Goffs Owners and Trainers Lounge boasts design features including double height vaulted ceilings, full panoramic Planar glazing system and split level mezzanine floor layout to optimise the wonderful views of the famous finishing straight. The interior design concept draws inspiration from high end restaurant and hotel style.


Today’s announcement is the third string to the Goffs bow at Punchestown as Ireland’s leading bloodstock auction house also sponsors the prestigious €100,000 Goffs Land Rover Bumper on the opening day of the festival as well as conducting the Goffs Punchestown Sale, Ireland’s only boutique Point to Point Sale, after racing on Thursday 26th April. 


Announcing the sponsorship, Goffs Group Chief Executive Henry Beeby said:

“Owners are the lifeblood of the racing industry and Goffs hopes to enhance their race day experience through our sponsorship of the stunning new Owners & Trainers Lounge at Punchestown.  

Goffs’ increased involvement at Punchestown underlines our commitment to National Hunt racing in Ireland and sits proudly alongside Goffs Thyestes Chase, Goffs Future Champions Bumper at the Dublin Racing Festival, the Goffs Land Rover Bumper as well as many point to point sponsorships throughout the country”.


Welcoming today’s announcement Punchestown General Manager Dick O’Sullivan said:

“We are delighted to announce the news regarding the Goffs Owners and Trainers Lounge. We know that both companies share a commitment to ensuring owners are valued and looked after as they should be. Whilst we have made some major improvements to the owner offering at Punchestown in recent years the Goffs Owners and Trainers Lounge will elevate their race day experience here to a whole new level. We would like to take this opportunity to thank Goffs for their continued support”.
