I went with my girlfriend for an horseriding and the experience was fantastic! The route we did in a couple of hours was wonderful, as we could cross a pine woodland, gallop along the beach and see the cliffs. The stable are very well organized...More

We booked a 10 min walk around with our young children. We found the staff generally unhelpful. We will not be returning here again.

We turned up and the laid back atmosphere was true Ireland. Nice people, perfect horse for a beginner, and the most outstanding spectacular views for an hour on the beach. Ride out across the street and then up and down Kilahooey Strand. Fabulous.
