Pink Friday at The Ardilaun Hotel

Did you hear The Ardilaun’s new event for the Galway Races this year – Pink Friday at The Ardilaun Hotel (formerly known as First Furlong) which will be bigger and better than ever!

It is that time of year again when the team here at The Ardilaun Hotel are busy preparing for another busy Galway Race Week Festival and one of the highlights this year is our Pink Friday Luncheon event at The Ardilaun in support of the National Breast Cancer Research Institute which encapsulates fun, food and racing on Friday the 4th of August at the hotel.

Guests can get glammed up and dress up for the Races wearing a splash of pink to be in with a chance of winning the Best Dressed competition sponsored by Anthony Ryan’s . At 12 noon on the day, we have a sparkling bubbly reception, Dingle Gin & Vodka and live entertainment by the Vicaria Band on arrival. Soak up the atmosphere and enjoy a sumptuous four course lunch with fine wines, followed by entertainment by The Benen Tierney Experience.

Special guest on the day will be former jockey, Nina Carberry, giving her personal racing tips for Ballybrit.

You can leave your car at the hotel for the day, and enjoy coach transfer for you and your guests to the Racetrack to make the first race for this evening meeting, which includes entry to the racecourse also. Alternatively relax and chill out in Blazers Bar and The Ardilaun Bistro with large screens featuring the Galway Races from Ballybrit.

Avail of the free entertainment later that evening back at The Ardilaun Bar & Bistro.

Proceeds from the event will directly support the National Breast Cancer Research Institute, a charity that is positively impacting future outcomes for breast cancer patients by funding world-class breast cancer research at University of Galway, under the stewardship of Professor Michael Kerin and his team.
