Know More about this tour

When you arrive you will be greeted by the friendly staff and two jack russell terriers. You will fill in your registration form and be fitted with a riding hat and boots, if you do not have your own. Once you have mounted up you will have a riding assessment with a qualified instructor and the pace of the ride will be tailored to the abilities of your party. Then, accompanied by a guide, you will ride through our yard and up into the mountains. Even on cloudy days the views are spectacular and you will experience the real hidden beauty of Ireland. Your guide will explain to you the archaeological features of the landscape including bronze-age sites and celtic ring forts. You will then ride along quiet boreens to the local pub. The first leg of your ride will take approx two hours. At the pub you will be offered soup and a choice of sandwiches for lunch as well as a drink (included in the price). Your horses will be looked after while you relax and refresh yourselves, and you will get the chance to chat with the friendly pub staff. Your break will be for approx one hour. Then it will be time to mount up again to ride home by a different route, taking in yet more spectacular views on the way. If your party consists of highly experienced riders, there will be chances to gallop and jump during the day. If you are less experienced or unused to English riding techniques, the ride will go at a more leisurely pace.

Traveler Reviews

    As much as I was looking forward to this, it was disappointing. Signage to find this remote location was really poor and the manager when called prior said just to google it and use instructions on their website...which was minimal. We were told we would have to hurry to the Pub...yet had to wait while they got the horses ready. The Pub lunch was a chicken or beef sandwich which was disappointing, not much fanfare to celebrate the Irish Pub. The owner of the Pub were rushing off to serve food at a funeral...and I felt like our food was just a part of that preparation. The equipment we had to wear, helmet and boots, were so dirty it was hard to get into them.

    The views that you can see from horseback are delightful but I highly recommend going with a group comprised with similar abilities. You will ride at the lowest riders ability level and there is not an opportunity for those riders to keep trying to improve. The pub you stop for lunch is super quiet but has good food. Definitely bring a camera. If you are limited to a walk, expect the tour to take at least 5 hrs. The barn helpfully provides helmets and boots if you do not have them.
