Brennanstown Riding School is one of Ireland's longest running and best known equestrian centres. While we specialize in riding lessons we also offer scenic trekking with treks up the Little Sugar Loaf Mountain and also into the magnificent Kilruddery Estate. Trek lengths range from one hour for as little as 33 euro per person up to two hour treks and combo treks which include lunch at neighboring attractions.

My girlfriend and I booked a ride on a day where it was supposed to rain during our ride so we showed up early and the staff was very accommodating and took us out early (which they typically do not do). The owner's son took us out on a beautiful ride and even showed me how to trot before we... More

I travelled quite a long way for reasons I will not say, after being here when I was much younger. I met some lovely members of staff and had a tour of the place. The stables are lovely and old fashioned and the horses are all looking great. However, this experience was unfortunately marred by the presence of the yard... More

Wonderful yard, very impressed on cleanliness as another reviewer said, cleanest yard I have been too. Lovely staff, lovely horses. We arrived early and for one of our party of three we needed a hat, they provided shower caps to go underneath if you wanted. Boots are also available. We completed the rider information forms, I had already given rider... More

Went on a really beautiful day with blue sky and sunshine. I was assigned to a pony given I am short.... >< The whole walking took almost 2 hours. It's quite tiring to keep controlling your horse not to eat grass along the way LOL. Tutors are friendly, helpful and patient to give instructions before and during the walk.

Everything about this place was great! We planned for 5 people but my dad threw his back out a few days before. They had no problem when we called that morning to let them know. We arrived there on time, were given boots/helmets and a little lesson. Very helpful! Our guide, Andrea, then took us out into the mountains for... More

Myself and my girlfriend booked an afternoon hour long trek for 2. Rob and Amy were extremely friendly and helpful, giving good instruction on the basics of riding without being in anyway over cautious which adds to the enjoyment. 45 euro each was a bargain. We'll be back with a bigger group of friends next time. Eamonn & Kim

Visited with my girlfriend today and we were both impressed!We were geared up by one of the girls in the office with boots and head gear before being introduced to our guide Rob. Rob showed us the basics around the practice arena and made sure we were comfortable with the horses before we set off on our trail riding Morgan... More

To the gentleman complaining about the lack of email response, my email was answered immediately. Super friendly and informative. Visited the location today and was so impressed by the facility, staff and quality of horses, we are returning later this week to ride. A full critique to follow. :)
