Racing season at Portmarnock Raceway is active from April to November, Race meetings are mostly held on Sundays.
This is a great day out for all family. Track has it’s own free car park, bar, hot food and fully equipped playground.
The Track is located just outside Dublin city and 10 minutes from Dublin International Airport.
Portmarnock Raceway was originally opened in 1969 before closing in 2004 when the ground was sold for property development which never happened. The recession in 2008 resulted in a sharp downturn in the housing market and the track remained idle until an approach was made to the owner by the committee of Standardbred Harness Racing Ireland. After 7 years of silence at the track, races were held in June 2011.
Now at least 20 meetings each season are bringing new records to the world of harness racing.
