Galway Races – Summer Festival

Ireland’s biggest and most famous horse racing festival, the Galway Races, will take place from Monday 31st July to Sunday 6th August 2023.

With an attendance of over 250,000 throughout Race Week, Galway City comes alive with racegoers and the atmosphere is electric! With near 50 races on the race schedule for the 2023 Galway Races, the betting ring at the Festival is sure to be alive with plenty of buzz and activity. The big race, the famous Galway Plate, takes place on Wednesday, the third day of the meeting and it will be the race that attracts by far the most media attention and certainly much of the Galway Festival betting. Decked out in your best attire, Ladies Day takes place on the fourth day of the Festival and it is one of the most colourful, with a winner for the Best Dressed Lady on the day. The Galway Races are an incredible fun-filled seven days of racing where you may leave with more in your pocket than your came in with, or failing that, plenty of craic had in the amazing atmosphere.
