This is a great place for kids. Very well run and in a great location. My 11 year old daughter has learned so much and really loves the treks. The ponies are so well mannered and well suited for all levels.

I'm doing an exchange program in Dublin and decided to check out the Paddocks riding centre. I was not disappointed. The instructors for lessons are really patient and improved my skills a ton. I would totally recommend this place to anyone visiting Dublin.
