Omey Races

Omey Races 2019 (horse racing on the beach) on Omey Strand.

The 2019 Races PROVISIONAL DATE is Sunday 4th August. Please check back for updates closer to the date for confirmation.

Omey is a tidal island located near Claddaghduff, a few miles from Clifden, in the western edge of Connemara. There is a route across the sand to the island and, at high tide, the water is deep enough to cover a car. To help in the last moments before the water becomes too deep, there are conventional street signs to indicate the highest route.

The start time depends on the tide but usually around 11.30 and, of course, the finish time also depends on the tide.
