Overview
More
Tramore racecourse is where 'the turf meets the surf' and it is one of the most intimate stages for racing in Ireland. The 4-day mid-August festival (incorporating 3 evening meetings) has everything a summer racing festival should have: sun (usually), sea, sand, spectacular racing and anything else that takes your fancy on a hot summers day. It offers a great opportunity to take a racing holiday because of the great amenities on your doorstep in Tramore, one of the premier seaside resorts in Ireland.

I am not a racegoer but tramore races are always great fun and craic. Big event ladies day during the summer. Big crowd live music in the marquee drink flowing and everybody having a laugh. If visiting Waterford in August check it out. Recommended.

Went on New Years day and froze in the slow queue to get in. Uncooked chips. Awful canteen food and outdated amenities. Should be pulled down and rebuilt as the track is good for viewing.More
