Killarney Races

Racecourse Guide

The current County Kerry course has been running since 1936 and is, without question, once of the most beautifully set racecourses in the world. Right in the heart of Kerry’s tourist epicentre, Killarney is a very scenic place indeed and its racecourse encompasses that natural wonder. There are three summer festivals at Killarney races, all equal in stature and competitiveness of racing. Both flat and jump racing is held around this fairly tight left-handed track which is just over a mile long. Killarney racecourse is known for its great hospitality, with restaurants providing panoramic views of the surrounding countryside and many bars and places to eat and enjoy the races to boot. If you’re ever in Kerry on your travels, be sure to check if racing is on here at that time. Better still, organise your trip to ensure there is.
