Do you want to celebrate Ladies Day at Killarney Races in style this year? Café du Parc Killarney has the answer.

If you want to start the day off with panache, you can head over to Café du Parc for great bites, Rosé Flight or a cocktail and the chance to win prizes in their Best Dressed competition, all before you make your way to Ladies Day.

The Café du Parc exclusive Ladies Day Rosé pre-party will take place before the races kick off, giving you a chance to show off your outfit and even win a prize before Ladies Day officially begins.

The doors will be open from 11am, with the Best Dressed award being judged from midday and the winners announced at 1pm.

While you’re there, you can enjoy a cocktail to get yourself into the spirit of the occasion, or sit with the Café du Parc’s Rosé Flight, with four tasters of premium rosé wines. There will also be a sumptuous brunch menu on offer, so you can enjoy dishes like avocado toast, eggs benedict or chicken and waffles before you head over to the Races.

Judging for the Café du Parc Best Dressed will be taking place from midday, with the stylist and fashion designer Sinead Keary deciding upon the ultimate winners, with some fabulous prizes up for grabs. There will also be entertainment to get you into the spirit of the day. Dress code is Café Du Parc chic with a touch of Ladies Day dazzle but most importantly come in whatever makes you feel awesome (hats optional).

If you want to continue the party after the Races, you can head back to Café du Parc for light bites and a cocktail at the end of the day.

The prizes for Best Dressed are most definitely worth dusting off the fascinator.

Overall Prize: A Suite Stay in The Killarney Plaza Hotel & Spa, including two nights stay in a suite, cocktails and dinner in Café du Parc, a Signature Serail treatment for two people and brunch on both mornings
Second Place: A ‘Funky Brunch’ and bubbles for six people in Café du Parc
Third Place: Dinner and drinks for four people in O’Donoghue Public House

You can pop in for the Best Dressed on the day or if you like there is an option to purchase a ticket that includes Brunch, rosé flights and tickets to Ladies Day for €60.

Killarney superstar Jessie Buckley has been shortlisted for the 2022 Mercury Prize Album of the Year.

Her collaboration with Bernard Butler ‘For All Our Days That Tear the Heart’ is one of 12 albums shortlisted for the prestigious award which will be revealed in London on September 8.

“Neither of us really knew each other and it was actually a blessing in disguise because we met each other in the moment and trusted each other, took a leap of faith and in a way come in just the way we were and not because of who we are,” she told a press conference at the awards announcement in London last week.
