Described in the national media as a “tour de force” and following sell-out performances over the summer of 2016, “Patrick” will return to the Westport theatre stage every Tuesday night for July and August 2017. The show centers on original pieces of live music, dance and cinematic imagery as collaborative forms of narration to explore the story of Ireland’s Patron Saint – Patrick.

Ballinrobe Races

To be confirmed


The Ballinrobe Races are a real family event. Entertaining families since 1921 at this racecourse, we pride ourselves on our racing heritage coupled with a tangible appreciation of the future. Ballinrobe has a rich tradition of horseracing. Records show that Ballinrobe hosted a steeplechase back in 1834 and there are records of meetings back as far as 1774. The Ballinrobe Races hosts the best in the business under the benign shadow of the Partry Mountains and the majestic strength of the old oak trees. At Ballinrobe, the races are an integral part of the community; the spirit is free and westerly, the air is fresh, the scenery is splendid, the people are the best. The bookies will entertain, the covered pavilion will comfort, and the sun will shine.
