Free Racecourse Wi-Fi continues to roll-out across Ireland’s race tracks


Free Racecourse Wi-Fi is now available at 11 racecourses throughout Ireland, with an additional five racecourses due to go live in June and July. 

The scheme for the provision of Wi-Fi across all Irish racecourses was announced in September 2016 with an overall investment of €2.4 million, including a €1.2 million grant from HRI.

Already 21,888 unique users have logged into the Free Racecourse Wi-Fi network across the 11 active tracks, with 22% of racegoers opting in to receive further communication. 

HRI’s Wi-Fi Project Manager, Niamh McManus, said: “Free Racecourse Wi-Fi will be live at the majority of Irish racecourses by the end of 2019.  We are delighted the project is nearing completion and together with our suppliers EIR and Capstone we are thrilled with how everything has come together in a relatively short space of time.”

The 11 racecourses currently offering Free Racecourse Wi-Fi are: Ballinrobe, Leopardstown, Cork, Naas, Fairyhouse, Navan, Dundalk, Limerick, Punchestown, Gowran Park and the Curragh.  The service will be available at Galway, Killarney, Tramore, Tipperary and Downpatrick  by the end of July.    

We are delighted the project is nearing completion and together with our suppliers EIR and Capstone we are thrilled with how everything has come together in a relatively short space of time.
