A day at the races in Polo Wicklow will be on course for “all the craic without the hassle of travel,” said the all-weather, year-round facility’s polo manager Siobhan Herbst on entertaining racing from Cheltenham from 1.30pm while serving up finger food by Sorrel & Eve throughout the afternoon.

“It’s coming up on the 18th of March which is Gold Cup Day at Cheltenham,” said Siobhan Herbst. “It’s great to be back after two years. Obviously like everybody else we haven’t been able to hold (anything) for the last two years.”

The afternoon of fashion, food and of course, racing will feature live music by Michelle Robertson, Kevin Pedreschi and Derek ‘Dewi’ Byrne with prizes to be presented to the best dressed lady and gent who will turn out in their Gold Cup Day racing best.

Martine Grogan (l-r), Caitriona Arnott, Niamh Fawl, Vivienne Nyhan and Geraldine Kane are ladies who can be counted on to turn out in their best dressed fashion, anytime at Polo Wicklow Ireland

“It’s a bit of craic without the hassle of having to travel to Cheltenham,” added Siobhan Herbst.
