Wexford Racecourse Facilities

Facilities on site include free car parking for over 200 vehicles. Catering and refreshments are available at The Ivy Bar & Restaurant. Table bookings are available and guests can enjoy an extensive menu offering the very best of local cuisine and produce. For those on the move, the Snack Room offers some lighter hot snacks, sandwiches and hot drinks.

The Main Stand is the most popular place to be at every race meet with a choice of two bars upstairs. This stand also houses the Tote and the Levy Office. As a covered location, the main stand offers shelter from the gentle Irish weather, although as many readers will be aware, visitors to Wexford are more likely to be sheltering from the sun!

There’s also a portion of uncovered stand, ideal for the good weather and offering a bird’s-eye view of the finishing straight!

Wexford Racecourse promote a family friendly environment with private baby feeding and changing facilities available at the Ladies in the Parade Ring. Race meets are the ideal day out for groups too, a great way to spend a few hours with friends or colleagues, offering excitement and challenge to select the winners ahead of others in your group!. Catch up with friends, hear the gossip and immerse yourself in the race athmosphere at one of the many bars at the racecourse. You might even pick up some tips from the locals!
