Cork Races

The Excitement is Palpable

Cork Racecourse is one of our premier racecourses, located only 30km from Cork City centre and less than 6Km from Cork Airport. Cork Racecourse stages usually 18 race days year, both Flat and National Hunt, including the iconic three-day long Cork Easter Festival held over the Easter public holiday weekend each year.

Cork Racecourse, better known as Mallow to the locals, is a right handed, flat, level track of 10 furlongs (inner circuit), and 12 furlongs (outer circuit), with a sharp turn in and level finish of 3 furlongs offering fabulous viewing for all races. There is also a chute which enables Cork to run races of 5 - 7F without a bend to negotaite. Hurdle and Chase races are always exciting to watch, especially the prestigious and valuable Munster National, held on Easter festival Monday each season.

Aside from the three day long Easter Festival Cork stages a mix of fabulous Flat and Jump race meetings year round. A day at Cork Races never disappoints, Great racing, fabulous food, enthralling entertainment and classy fashion to enjoy on whichever of the ecclectic mix of race day's you attend.
