My wife and I realized that opening day at the races fell in our vacation time and we knew we had to attend. After all, what could top off a trip to Ireland better than going to the horse races?

Killarney has a few evening meetings annually In the Summer afternoon the wonderful view takes the eye away from the horses As an outing I would highly recommend horseracing in Killarney

Always a joy to visit one of the most scenic racecourse in the world. It's compact, to walk around, from rail, to parade ring to bars etc. Great viewing track, against unique backdrop. Restaurant offers a good standard and selection of hot dishes, although the chowder was very tepid on 20.08.16! Would have taken it back, had I not been... More

Making money on an Irish racetrack could be considered a challenge ! lol. Hey no one does it better than the Irish, their love of horse flesh, gambling and having fun, makes this to be a most interesting day, event to enjoy.

I'm not the type of person who goes gambling, however found Killarney races a lot of fun. The experience of being at such a beautiful racecourse and enjoying the local culture was a memorable experience
