Every year in August, the field at Ballintaggart changes into an enormous racetrack filled with horses, jockeys and horse racing enthusiasts from all over Ireland and the rest of the world. No less than 20 races are held with a total prize fund of €40,000!
The races in Dingle are the biggest of all Horse & Pony races in Ireland. The real racing fan cannot miss the twenty races that are spread over the weekend. The local saying that the summer is gone after the races might not be completely true, but what is true is that the races are the absolute highlight on Dingle's event calendar! More than 160 horses from all over the country will compete in these races for prices as high as €6,000. The centre of the racecourse is filled with bouncing castles, fortune-tellers and fair stands that sell everything from bouncing balls to saddler's sponges. Entertainment for the whole family!
