Galway Races October Bank Holiday Meeting

The Galway Races are launching an October Bank Holiday race meet featuring a fun line up of entertainment for all the family.

On Saturday 27th October, the race course will be transformed for a Spooktacular Halloween themed family fun day. The day will include 7 races as well as well as all the usual entertainment you can expect from a day at Ballybrit. Kids under 16 go free on the day so it’s the perfect way to spend the bank holiday!

Sunday 28th October sees the first Race in Pink fundraiser for the National Breast Cancer Research Institute. It promises to be a day of glamour to rival even the famous Ladies Day with guests being encouraged to wear pink in support of Breast Cancer Awareness month. A great day of racing and entertainment is guaranteed, all in aid of a deserving cause.

Monday 29th October sees the return of Student Race Day held in conjunction with NUIG. A day of fun, frolics and over course fashion is promised with a full line up of entertainment and competitions on the day.

Clayton Hotel Galway is the closest hotel to the racecourse so it’s the ideal base this coming October Bank Holiday. Enjoy a luxurious night’s stay after your long day of racing as well as delicious dining and live entertainment in our Enclosure Bar. For reservations, please click here.
