• About Racecourse

    Bellewstown Racecourse is beautifully situated on a hill-top setting, home to magnificent views of the Mountains of Mourne to the North and the Irish Sea to the East. Taking in these scenes on a warm summer evening followed by racing is a pleasure in itself. The racecourse famously attracts big crowds all year round for their 8 fixtures. The left- handed track accompanied by the Hill of Crockafotha provides for exhilarating Flat and Hurdle competition. All meetings at Bellewstown take place in the evening time and while it may be small in stature, Bellewstown is big in heart and atmosphere with many of the public flocking to the racecourse. The tradition of Summer racing at Bellewstown dates back centuries and the first record of racing appears in the August edition of the Dublin Gazette and the Weekly Courier in 1726.
