Ballinrobe Racecourse is ideally situated in a natural amphitheatre set before the picturesque vista of Lough Carra. It has all you could ask for in a country racecourse, beautiful setting, lively atmosphere and the laid back relaxed attitude that Ireland is famous for. With eight meetings in the summer (including seven evening meets) it is the ideal place to go to switch off and unwind. The racecourse is host to competitive Flat and National Hunt meetings. Race meetings have been recorded in the area since 1773. Racing has been held on the current course since it was purchased in 1921.
Ballinrobe is a right hand fairly sharp track of a mile and a half circumference. It certainly pays to race prominently. The home turn is very sharp and if you are required to come round horses there you can be slung into the middle of the course and lose lots of ground.
