Festival and races
People gather for the Glenbeigh Festival and Races to see horse racing on Rossbeigh Strand, but the festival also includes plenty of other family-friendly events and is famous for the craic.
The horses do look especially majestic as they gallop across the sand with the waves crashing and the Dingle Peninsula stretching into the Atlantic in the background, so the races are entertaining even for those not usually interested in the sport.
The village comes alive with music and dancing, drawing people from the surrounding countryside for the donkey derby or the tractor lawnmower race. There is also plenty on offer to keep kids happy, like a fancy dress parade and a dog show.
