Leopardstown 14th September - The Curragh 15th September

  • Longines Prize for Elegance - Irish Champions Weekend

    A must for the annual social and sporting calendar and one of Europe’s richest racing weekends, the Longines Irish Champions Weekend returned for 2018. The style stakes took place at Ireland's premiere racecourses, Leopardstown and The Curragh, creating one epic Irish racing event.

    The social scene around the weekend is of equally high quality and, at both racecourses, fashion enthusiasts got the chance to showcase their style credentials to be in with a chance of winning the overall Longines Prize for Elegance.


    This year saw the Most Stylish Gentlemen and Lady win a luxury overnight stay for two people in The  5* Merrion Hotel including a Champagne breakfast and dinner with wine at The Garden Room Restaurant and a classic Longines timepiece from their latest collection.
