About Racecourse

Ballinrobe Racecourse is ideally situated in a natural amphitheatre set before the picturesque vista of Lough Carra and boasts an exceptional view of every stride. It has all you could ask for in a country racecourse, beautiful setting, lively atmosphere, and the laid-back relaxed attitude that Ireland is famous for. With ten meetings in the summer, from April to September it is the ideal place to go to switch off and unwind. Ballinrobe is a racecourse that you will return to again and again.

With a history of horse racing stretching back more than 230 years, Ballinrobe Racecourse has long had its finger on the pulse of the Irish racing world. Horse Racing has been taking place at the present venue since 1921 and prior to that at other locations around the town, with Race meetings recorded as far back as 1774.
