A Proper Day Out
Although situated remarkably close to Sligo town centre, Sligo Racecourse is a particularly scenic racing venue in the northwest. Traditionally a summer venue, the majority of meetings at Sligo are held in the evening time making each meeting extremely popular to the public. Many of the bigger races at the course are on the Flat and over hurdles and are often fiercely competitive affairs. The two-day meeting in early August comes hot on the heels of the Galway Festival and are the track's busiest days and Ladies day is one of
the track's busiest days. With a cash prize for the winner, plus jewellery
and prosecco for those who make the top 10 – this is a day not to be missed.
There’s also great offers on food and drink bundles.
