Sligo Racecourse

Sligo racecourse is situated between the mountains of Benbulben and Knocknarea and is one of the most picturesque courses in Ireland. 

Traditionally, racing has taken place around Sligo since 1781, but due to political unrest meetings were few and far between back then.  It moved to a site at Hazelwood until 1942, but moved to its current location of Cleveragh in 1955 where it holds both national hunt and flat racing.

Its right-handed course is currently one mile in length and has a steady incline to the finish finding out non-stayers.

Sligo really gains momentum in August as racegoers venture on from the seven-day Galway festival to Sligo, where they hold an array of competitive meetings.
