Tramore racecourse is where 'the turf meets the surf' and it is one of the most intimate stages for racing in Ireland. The 4-day mid-August festival (incorporating 3 evening meetings) has everything a summer racing festival should have: sun (usually), sea, sand, spectacular racing and anything else that takes your fancy on a hot summers day. It offers a great opportunity to take a racing holiday because of the great amenities on your doorstep in Tramore, one of the premier seaside resorts in Ireland.

Great day out either with family or friends. Caters for all ages. Some thing to suit everyone. Check out their web site for full details of dates. Not just for horse racing.

if you are used to American horse racing, you are in for a treat!!! There is nothing like Irish horse racing for fun. The track itself is incredibly easy to get to (and an easy walk from the Beach Haven House B&B where we stayed), and if you like horse racing, I promise you that you'll enjoy this activity.

I attended "Ladies" Evening meeting with two good friends. It was very well attended with the ladies putting a lot of hard work and they all looked amazing. The sun shone I have attended this festival racing many times but this year was the best well done to the manager and staff and everyone involved.
