Owner description: 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.

We go racing regularly to all racecourses in Ireland.

Tramore need to get itself sorted, it is in places filthy.

I am still waiting for about 3 weeks for a reply to an email I sent regarding their hospitality options.

I am still waiting 2 days for a reply to a message I put up on their Facebook page regarding opening times. Although I'll be waiting a while as they deleted the post.

The toilet facilities are incredibly bad, I have seen better in farmyard animal pens, disgusting is not the word to be honest.

I think if Tramore Racecourse looked after it's racegoers better, it would get better crowds, and money to invest where it should invest.

Not only that but the actual racecard was incredibly poor. Even Trainers are thin on the ground for them!

A visit to the racecourse provides a glimpse of Irish culture. The racecourse is easily reached from Tramore.

The viewing stands give a good view of most of the track however the cafe isn't great and the bar is very basic, They don't have a good selection of drinks and run out frequently and only provide plastic glasses.
