Moycullen Riding Centre is situated near Galway city, in the magnificent surroundings of the Connemara countryside. They offer one and two hour treks along bog roads and across mountains.

I rode with one other experienced rider on the beach at low tide. This far surpassed my expectations. The scenery was gorgeous and the horses were well trained and responsive. A ride of a life! Tom made sure we had a great time.

Unfortunately it took me a few attempts to reach out to them, but they are still giving rides. They are located off the beaten path in Galway. It is awesome. Goodluck and I hope you get to experience it
