Racing Update

In light of the evolving situation regarding Covid-19, we have made the difficult but unavoidable decision that the Galway Races Summer Festival, due to be held from Monday 27th July to Sunday 2nd August will not be able to take place as an event open to the general pubic this year. 
We’re disappointed that our racegoers can’t be here in person this year, but we are delighted to invite you to join us virtually, via RTE TV, Racing TV and our social media channels as we celebrate all that is great about the Galway Races. We aim to deliver a fun, entertaining experience for our supporters so we hope you will get involved! We will announce our plans very soon!

Hospitality

We’ll be back… 

Due to Covid-19, this July we will race behind closed doors in-line with Horse Racing Ireland and Government guidelines. As you can understand, we will not be taking any hospitality bookings for our Summer Festival 2020. We look forward to welcoming you all back to Galway Racecourse to enjoy our special atmosphere very soon.
