Omey Races (TBC)
Jul 23 all-day

Often referred to as ‘The other Galway Races’, the Omey Races take place annually on the strand at Omey Strand, Claddaghduff in Connemara. Re-established as a tradition in 2001, the annual summer races have been steadily attracting greater numbers every year and last year drew a crowd of almost 5000 people for a wonderful day of sun, sand, sea and of course, horse racing. With up to nine races on the card, there’s opportunities for young, upcoming jockeys to hone their skills, while providing a great day out for spectators. The races this year are being held on Sunday, July TBC. The first race will be off at 1pm sharp, so don’t miss out.
