ABOUT: Sometimes described as “Ireland’s most scenic racecourse”, racing at Killarney in County Kerry has taken place since the early 1800’s. Today, racing in Killarney often takes place in the evening, and the town itself is renowned as a popular tourist destination for visitors to Ireland - and won the award for the country’s tidiest town in 2011.

Ireland’s most picturesque racecourse, Killarney has two straight sides, two sharp bends on either end, and is a left-handed track with three fences on the back straight, and three in the home straight. They race in May, July and August and it really is a very beautiful racecourse, dead level and very fast.
