When is the Galway Festival 2022? Dates and race schedule for seven-day summer meeting

The iconic summer festival is almost here!



Here we go! Seven super days of racing at Ballybrit lie ahead… and we can hardly wait!

The Galway Festival 2022 takes place between Monday, July 25 and Sunday, July 31 and it offers a mixture of Flat and National Hunt racing so there’s something for fans of either code to enjoy.


All eyes will be on the prestigious Galway Plate on day three as a stack of cracking chasers tackle 14 fences over 2m6½f in the battle for the €159,300 top prize. The same sum is on offer the following day in the Galway Hurdle, won in recent years by the likes of Saldier and Sharjah.

Paddy’s trusty traders have already priced up a number of antepost betting markets, which can be found on the Galway & Goodwood tab on paddypower.com. Otherwise, you’ll find the race schedule for all seven days of Galway Festival 2022 below.
