On arrival, guests will be welcomed with a glass of Champagne in the luxurious Main House Drawing Room with French doors leading out to the immaculately landscaped gardens and with the iconic Rock of Cashel providing the perfect magical backdrop.

A sumptuous Traditional Afternoon Tea will be served in the contemporary grand Ballroom, providing guests the time to sample each delicacy while the designers share their creative journeys and showcase their designs, inviting interaction and panel discussions throughout the afternoon.

The impressive Race Day Panel includes:
