The Dublin Racing Festival takes place this weekend (Feb 3 and 4) and combines the best of what the city has to offer over one weekend.

You don't have to be a horse racing fan to enjoy the weekend as there will be the best of Dublin culture, music, fashion and food on offer. 

But, if you do like horse racing, the horses that will be competing against each other will be of the highest order. 

It's the inaugural year of the festival and it is a weekend that will celebrate Dublin's richness and diversity.

Leopardstown has announced the two music headliners for the festival – Damien Dempsey (Feb 3) and Stockton’s Wing (Feb 4). 

Children under the age of 18 enter for free but must be accompanied by a paying parent/guardian who is over 18.

The Weekend Pass (2 day general admission) is €60 and an Adult Single (one day) Admission is €35.
