The Galway Races is the sparkling highlight of the social and sporting calendar here in Galway and it’s almost time for the madness to begin all over again! From July 31st to August 6th, Ballybrit Racecourse will play host to one of the most celebrated race meetings in the world. Some of the greatest trainers and jockeys will be taking part in seven days of breath taking racing action.

The Galway Races Summer Festival features not only the brightest stars in horse racing but all the glamour and spectacle fans have come to expect. From live music, high fashion, delicious food and of course the fun of having a little flutter, there really is something for everyone there.

The new Festival Village offers a new dimension to the experience too with a resident DJ, craft beer on tap as well as a shopping village and of course a big screen to keep in touch with all the action on the course.

The atmosphere of the Galway Races is famous with racing fans travelling from all over the world just to experience it. Over 145,000 people attended the Summer Festival last year and it is looking like it will be just as popular this year!
