Evening at Ballinrobe Races
Jun 2019 • Couples
This is a lovely racetrack - classic Irish track with undulating surface and the entire track visible form the grandstand. Full facilities - bar, restaurants, fast food are available and also a range of betting alternatives with bookies and the Tote.

However the real attraction of Ballinrobe is the close proximity to the horses, jockeys and the track.

Ballinrobe is under an hours drive from Galway with free parking and an entry fee of €15 - great value

Went to the races tonight in Ballinrobe.
A beautiful track in a beautiful setting.
Saw 7 races total for a entrance fee of 15 euro.
A good Guinness can be had here 😊
Being from the USA, it is nice to see horses run on grass.
They had plenty of amenities, place was well run.
Would love to return 🇮🇪

We went to the Ballinrobe Races and I have to say what a little gem this place is. You can see that this racecourse is run with a lot of love and care from the Committee who look after it. There is a lovely relaxing atmosphere and a very local vibe there too alongside tourists. The place was packed on a Monday evening. Unfortunately the races were called off during the evening due to slippy ground but they gave out free tickets to the next race meeting to everyone as they left. I didn't think that places like this still existed in Ireland, I would recommend everyone to go to the Races in Ballinrobe to get a slice of the lovely vibe that I experienced. p.s. I loved the photo spot for the ladies with the flowers above it! (very cute!)

Great racetrack..... winners hard to get!

What a great place to visit on a nice sunny evening. The recent improvements have added to the approach to the course.
Everything about this place is a good experience; however, winners are hard to come by for the average amateur punter!!

I brought a diverse group there that included South African, Austrian and Swiss. They all had a great afternoon and loved the atmosphere and getting so close to the paddock and racing. Worth a visit

Was staying with friends in Westport and decided to take the scenic drive to the Ballinrobe races. Fortunately, it was a beautiful evening and despite being a little late found a free parking space in a field across the road. There is a reduced price for senior citizens and children under 14 are allowed in for free; in any case it was a bargain at only €15 euros per person. There is corporate hospitality deal for access to the Coronna restaurant for a charge of €60 per person which included a 4-course dinner, tote betting facilities, bar service, and private balcony viewing area. However, I just got in line with my fellow punters and enjoyed excellent bacon, cabbage and potatoes. Take-away food is available in addition to formal dining. Prices for food and drinks were reasonable. A resident band was playing, which I found too loud. Am not a horsey person but did enjoy the relaxed atmosphere mingling with the regulars and easy access to the parade ground. The entire scenic course is visible from the grandstand with a nice view of the Partry Mountains.

Well worth the stop
Jul 2017
If you are in the area while races are being held, you would be well-advised to stop at the races in Ballinrobe. For a race track, the environment is quite family-friendly. Racegoers were friendly, well-mannered, and enthusiastic about the races.
