Carrowniskey Races 2019
July 7, Carrowniskey Beach, Louisburgh.
Can you imagine anything more stirring than the sound of horses’ hooves beating the sand, with the wild Atlantic Ocean as a backdrop? Sunday, July 7 from 2:00 pm, sees the traditional beach racing return to beautiful Carrowniskey strand, just half an hour from Westport. This great family day out starts at midday. There will be ten races on the beach – two local races for horses and ponies and eight MHPRA (Midlands Horse and Pony Racing Association) races. If you fancy a flutter, there will also be bookies taking bets.
There will be loads of family fun and entertainment too, with a bouncy castle, an ice cream van, a bicycle race, food and drink stalls, a public bar and dancing.
