About Irish Racetracks

The 26 racetracks in Ireland normally hold around 355 race meetings a year and attract attendances over 1 million. At OLBG we provide Irish racing picks for all tracks and all meetings. The tracks can be split between national hunt tracks, flat tracks, and multi-purpose (jumps and flat tracks).

Most Irish racetracks are dual tracks but there are exceptions. Punchestown, Kilbeggan, and Thurles provide National Hunt racing only. Dundalk, Laytown, and The Curragh provide flat racing only. The other 20 racetracks provide both flat and jump racing. 

Ireland has one all-weather track at Dundalk and Laytown is the only beach racetrack in the country which runs races under rules.

By region, the Irish tracks can be split as follows. As well as finding any Irish racing picks for upcoming races, each track provides useful background information to help you with betting at the track. Track layouts, track bias, jockey & trainer stats as well as other useful betting picks.
