Watch Cheltenham LIVE with Paddy Power at our Dublin Festival Fanzone

Paddy's got big plans for a 'Cheltenham Fanzone' in the heart of Dublin

Paddy’s conducted his own properly scientific and not-at-all cobbled together down the pub idea to launch ‘Paddy Power’s Cheltenham Fanzone’ in the heart of Dublin for Irish punters who can’t make it to the Cotswolds this year.

We’re going to take over The Camden, on Dublin’s Camden St, to host a mega event across the final two days of the festival to coincide with the double bank holiday on March 17 & 18.

Tickets are available via Ticketmaster HERE at a cost of €20.

Based on a survey carried out amongst customers across Ireland and Britain, we can tell you that 60% of sports fans plan to watch the festival from home this year – and a quarter of punters polled confessed to pulling a sickie in the past in order to enjoy the Cheltenham Festival.

On average, 18% of the 482 people surveyed said they would head to their local pub to lap up the action.

That figure rises to 36% when the Irish cohort were exclusively asked.

The poll also revealed information that may well set the hearts of employers racing for all the wrong reasons after one in four admitted they plan to double job during race week, and intend to watch The Festival while at work.

So, Paddy decided to buddy up with The Camden, a venue which boasts Europe’s largest indoor 4k screen, to provide horse racing fans with the perfect base for the final two days of The Festival.

Our very own barstool bluffer Paddy Power said: “For years I’ve dreamed of creating the ultimate escape during race week. Front row seats to all of the action on multiple screens, without fear of a big head drifting into my eye-line during the Paddy Power Stayers Hurdle, my internet crashing during the Ryanair Chase or Mammy asking me to empty the dishwasher during the Gold Cup.

“Paddy Power’s Cheltenham Fanzone ticks all those boxes. Think, pints, pants, and likeminded punters – all standing shoulder-to-shoulder with Festival legends like Fran Berry, Paul Carberry, the best tipsters and plenty of craic. If you can’t be in Cheltenham, you’ll want to be here.”



“If you think Bob Olinger is a brand of champagne, stay away. If the only Honeysuckle on your radar exists in a tiny bottle, don’t bother buying a ticket.

“And if you think Facile Vega might be related to American singer Suzanne Vega, please don’t turn up. Otherwise, we are inviting fans to pull up a pew and soak up every millisecond of the Cheltenham Festival uninterrupted – and all without having to set foot next or near a budget airline,” he added.

Tickets are available via Ticketmaster HERE at a cost of €20.
