IRELAND : GALWAY RACES

The Galway Races is a Horse-racing festival that takes place for a week starting on the last Monday in July. The races are held at Ballybrit race course in Galway, Ireland and are the only seven-day race meeting in the Ireland (or the United Kingdom).

The main days of the festival are on Wednesday, when the Galway Plate is held and Thursday when the Galway Hurdle and Ladies' Day take place. The festival is important to the local economy as it draws large crowds. Many Galway businesses not in the tourist industry operate reduced hours or close completely during the festival.

Race meetings also take place in September and October, but these are not nearly as popular as the summer festival.
