Sunday 29th July
Omey Races 2018 (horse racing on the beach) on Omey Strand.
The 2018 Races will take place on Sunday 29 July.
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.
For up to date information see the Omey Races Facebook Page.
