Owner description: We are a family run stables, set in the heart of the dramatic, timeless, unspoilt scenery that is the Wicklow mountains. The Maguire farm runs along the Kings River on the lower side while on the higher side, rust coloured bogs and granite stone wall framed fields, make this a landscape of extraordinary beauty. Experienced or novice riders alike can enjoy riding out over this hidden landscape

Mary and I arrived late, without cash and without the proper gear. Ray and Andrew only gave us the deserved about of kidding and then we hit the trails. Other places I've gone riding I felt it was a disservice to get on the emaciated horses, but these horses were well cared for and strong. We loved walking, trotting and cantering along the challenging trails and through the river. Loved this experience and wish I lived closer so I could go every weekend. Can't recommend highly enough.

Had a wonderful afternoon today myself and my husband are complete novices on a horse but Ray & his team made sure everyone knew what they were doing & checked on us all regularly throughout . Don't worry if you don't have the appropriate gear Ray has everything needed to keep warm on the Trek. Absolutely amazing views and a really lovely experience we will be back :) & Highly recommend

The wife and I stopped off here on our way to Kilkenny and glad we did. The trek was amazing, Ray the guide is a top man who looks after you. The trek itself is up a hill and then down and through a river. Great day out. Everyone in the group were delighted. 100% plan on going back.

We didn't planned to visit Wiclow like this but we didn't regret it.
We were all three beginners and Ray has been very nice and patient with us.
He showed us amazing landscapes and views and was definitely a good guide/photographer :P.
Horses were very calm and cute!
100% recommended and we surely come again next time.
Thanks for having us!
