Tramore Races calls on Waterford fashionistas for their Style Evening

The Tramore Race's Style Evening is back for another year and is set to take place in just ten days.

The August Racing Festival is a highlight for many sports, social, and fashion event lovers and will take place from Thursday the 11th until Sunday the 14th this year.

This year's Style Evening participants are in with the chance of winning prizes from the Lyrath Estate Hotel, Fitzgerald’s Menswear, and Blackwater Distilleries.

Four ladies and four gents will be selected as finalists by celebrity judges Marietta Doran and Mike Taylor. They will then pick their overall best-dressed duo with all runners-up receiving a bottle from Blackwater Distillery.


No registration is required as the judges will be out and about talent spotting.

The chosen most stylish lady will enjoy a two-night stay in a deluxe room at the Lyrath Estate Hotel in Kilkenny. She will get complimentary breakfast each morning, a dinner at the grill one evening, and a 30-minute spa treatment, as well as €500 in cash as spending money.

“We are absolutely delighted to partner with Tramore Racecourse ad to sponsor the Most Stylish Lady Competition this August," Debbie Mangan, Group Revenue and Strategy Manager, Lyrath Estate said.

The most stylish gent will be presented with a €1,000 voucher for Fitzgerald’s Menswear and €500 in cash.


Fitzgerald’s Menswear is a fourth-generation run, local business that was established in 1956.

The business was built on formal attire, namely suits, shirts, and ties. Quality tailored garments and casual wear were introduced to the collection to complement the needs of the modern man.

Winners will be selected in the style marquee after the fourth race which is off at 6:30pm.
