Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

It just so happened that the races were going on when we were in the area and it was ladies day. This was such a fun experience seeing the landscapes, the horses and all the ladies dressed for the event. We would definitely do it again!

This is a lovely racetrack - classic Irish track with undulating surface and the entire track visible form the grandstand. Full facilities - bar, restaurants, fast food are available and also a range of betting alternatives with bookies and the Tote.

However the real attraction of Ballinrobe is the close proximity to the horses, jockeys and the track.

Ballinrobe is under an hours drive from Galway with free parking and an entry fee of €15 - great value

Went to the races tonight in Ballinrobe.
A beautiful track in a beautiful setting.
Saw 7 races total for a entrance fee of 15 euro.
A good Guinness can be had here 😊
Being from the USA, it is nice to see horses run on grass.
They had plenty of amenities, place was well run.
Would love to return 🇮🇪

We went to the Ballinrobe Races and I have to say what a little gem this place is. You can see that this racecourse is run with a lot of love and care from the Committee who look after it. There is a lovely relaxing atmosphere and a very local vibe there too alongside tourists. The place was packed on a Monday evening. Unfortunately the races were called off during the evening due to slippy ground but they gave out free tickets to the next race meeting to everyone as they left. I didn't think that places like this still existed in Ireland, I would recommend everyone to go to the Races in Ballinrobe to get a slice of the lovely vibe that I experienced. p.s. I loved the photo spot for the ladies with the flowers above it! (very cute!)

What a great place to visit on a nice sunny evening. The recent improvements have added to the approach to the course.
Everything about this place is a good experience; however, winners are hard to come by for the average amateur punter!!

I brought a diverse group there that included South African, Austrian and Swiss. They all had a great afternoon and loved the atmosphere and getting so close to the paddock and racing. Worth a visit
