Laytown Races

Laytown Races occupies a unique position on the Irish and English Racing Calendar as it is the only race event run on the beach under the rules of the Turf Club. An alternative surface to the usual turf, dirt, and all-weather, and far from the manicured grass of the likes of Ascot and Cheltenham.

Racing takes place in September and is timed crucially with the pattern of the tide.
