Those looking for a great start to Ladies Day at the Killarney Races should look no further than Muckross Park Hotel & Spa – who are planning an exclusive Bubbles & Brunch event – in aid of Enable Ireland.

Festivities begin in the Medieval Atrium walled gardens on Thursday, July 18 with a prosecco reception and entertainment provided by Code of Behaviour. Guests will then be invited to the Valencia Suite for a delicious brunch­featuring cured meats and cheeses, artisan breads, smoked salmon, pancakes, waffles, free range chicken, smoked bacon, avocado and eggs.

“Our team has worked together to create a fun and exciting brunch menu which we think our guests will enjoy and we’re really proud to do it for such a good cause,” Head Chef, Alan McArdle, who created the special brunch menu, said.

Following brunch, guests will be taken by private bus or jaunting car to the Killarney Races to enjoy a wonderful afternoon of top-class racing.
