With the sun set to shine this weekend, there can be no better place to be then at the Curragh. May 26th and 27th see the Eastern delights of the Abu Dhabi Irish Guineas Festival kick-start the summer racing season.
For the racing enthusiasts the festival has three main races:
- Abu Dhabi Irish 2000 Guineas (Sat 26th)
- Eithad Airways 1000 Guineas (Sun 27th)
- The President of the United Arab Emirates Cup (Sun 27th)
The President of the United Arab Emirates Cup is the only race run in Ireland for pure-breed Arabian horses and is extremely prestigious. (http://www.curragh.ie/whats-on/guineas-festival/)
The festival attracts more than just racing enthusiasts and punters from fashion fanatics to entertainment seekers and families. The festival has something for everyone; including an Arabian Village. The village will showcase elements of Emirati lifestyle and culture and a host of activities to promote the attractions of Abu Dhabi.(http://www.curragh.ie/whats-on/guineas-festival/). Among which will be gourmet food served in the garden area, children’s entertainment on Sunday and a Festival Shopping Village.

Eithad Airways will put on a fantastic display to showcase their association with Formula One Racing for those more concerned with horse power than actual horses themselves. And for the discerning fashionista; Sunday is Ladies Day sponsored by Eithad Airways and the magazine Irish Tatler. And for the lucky lady the prize up for grabs is an amazing trip to Abu Dhabi with accommodation and return flights from the award winning Eithad Airways.
