Skerries 100 at Bracken Court Hotel

The Skerries 100 is without doubt one of Irelands most famous motorcycle road race. It takes place every July in the village of Skerries just 10 minutes drive from the Bracken Court Hotel and regularly attracts more than 65,000 spectators every year

In order to have the best view of the Skerries 100 race, a number of spots have been highlighted as good viewing positions. These include the Start / Finish line. While there are very limited spectating areas at the Start / Finish line, the area between the Start / Finish line and the area adjacent to the Schoolhouse road junction provides some great views of the Start / Finish straight and the very fast run into Dublin corner, many an overtaking manoeuvre is attempted here. The Dublin Corner is the busiest section of the circuit with ample good viewing spots on the entry and exit to the corner. It is always a favourite with regulars to the event. Dublin corner is a slow tight 90 degree left hander at the end of one of the fastest stretches on the circuit. Stand here and you’ll see some fantastic action. Riders jostling for position will leave braking as late as they can, sometimes running off and down towards the paddock

The Paddock at the Skerries 100 is always great craic! Here you’ll find all the riders, their machines and their support crews. Many of the riders are happy to chat with spectators and sign autographs whilst they are in the Paddock but please remember the riders are here to race and they do need some time to themselves between races! You can take the opportunity to snap of few good photographs at the podium which you’ll find at the entrance to the Paddock. You’ll also find a host of traders in the Paddock selling everything from Paddock stands to T-shirts and caps. Food and Beverages are also available in the Paddock area.
