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 the racecourse a huge hit with locals and tourists alike. 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.
