Cheltenham is not coined ‘the greatest show on turf’ for nothing. It brings a four-day meeting of the finest horses, jockeys and trainers in the Jump racing world, fighting it out for the ultimate honour, in an electric atmosphere that stands hairs on end. In the parade ring horses ripple and shine, and in the stands, a sea of tweed swells to a deafening roar as hooves gallop past the finishing line- racing legends in the making.
This year Dubarry continues its affinity with the Cheltenham festival, and offers you perfect styling for every day you attend, be it ladies’ day or for the infamous Gold Cup Friday.
We’ll be showcasing our new leather Goodyear Footwear Collection along with your favourite Dubarry looks in the Cheltenham Festival Shopping Village at Stand 62 each day and would love to see you.
If you’re ahead of the game, visit our Dubarry of Ireland Cheltenham store, right on the doorstep of the racecourse where our team, just as in our London and Dublin stores, will be on hand to get you festival ready.
Festival style tips.
For Cheltenham style you can’t go wrong in Dubarry. Comfort and country elegance is the name of the game for the serious race goer and Dubarry will take you from parade ring to track side, hopefully with some serious celebrating on the side.
Even with the weather is on your side Cheltenham can be a wind tunnel and the racecourse has plenty of grassy areas so warm layers and proper footwear is a must for anyone planning on being in the thick of the action.
For women our Blackthorn or Bracken jackets are both elegantly tailored tweed, perfect for keeping out the wind, and very much Cheltenham style. So easy to wear over a sweater dress or with trousers, teamed with a classic Dubarry Galway boot made from a waterproof and breathable leather, perfect for a day on your feet.
For men, the Goodyear Welted is an absolute must. A smart leather brogue with comfortable leather lining and a rubber sole for sure footed security when you’re cheering your horse home. A Ballyfin tweed jacket is Teflon coated and Goretex lined for practical yet smart style, or for an alternative breathable, waterproof jacket the Rathmullan is an ideal choice.
