Laytown Strand Races

Laytown Strand Races

June
A carnival atmosphere pervades the Laytown Strand Races, a unique horse race run on a beach track by the Irish Sea in Laytown, County Meath, Ireland. Horses, owners, trainers, and bookmakers mingle with horse-lovers, racing fans, party-goers, sun worshippers, and food and beverage vendors on the beach as the tide recedes and the races begin.
