Ballinrobe Races


One of the great highights here in Ballinrobe is when the race meetings take place. People from across the country travel to enjoy the races, but there is so much more to it than that. It is a gathering of the people, a chance to trade opinions and banter on a wide variety of topics.

When you take your place in, or to the front of, the grandstand, you look out on a charming course. You can virtually see every stride taken by the horses as they jostle for victory.

In the mid-distance, the picturesque Partry Mountains look on approvingly. Killarney has the Reeks and Sligo has Ben Bulben. There are few courses quite as scenic and as engaging as Ballinrobe. It is a day out for all the family.

Ballinrobe has a very old tradition of racing. Ballinrobe Racecourse is located one mile from the town on the main Castlebar road (N84). It is the only Racecourse in Mayo and is one of only 4 in Connaught.

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.

Ballinrobe posseses a slightly elevated right-handed track and boasts an exceptional view of every stride.
