About Laytown

About 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. Laytown Beach is located on the East Coast of Ireland in County Meath with stunning sceneries that stretch across the Irish Seas. Racing takes place in September and is timed crucially with the pattern of the tide.


People travel from far and wide to witness the spectacle of horse racing on the beach in Ireland, with crowds in excess of 5,000 in attendance every year enjoying six races run over a mixture of six and seven furlongs.
