The seaside racecourse at Tramore Co. Waterford holds its summer 4-day racing festival from Thursday 17th August to Sunday 20th August. Four days of top class racing and all the top trainers, horses, owners and jockeys will be there, “It’s not to be missed”.

Whether you’re a racing fanatic, a lady who loves getting glammed up in their stylish outfits, a man who likes to get suited and booted, or someone who is looking to have a good and fun day out at the races, Tramore racecourse caters for everyone, with a variety of different bars and restaurants, with live music in all their marquees and hospitality area, with a feature wall also in place for race goers to take their selfies or pictures with friends or family.
