We brought our 3 horses while we were staying at Markree home farm. Rocky and his team are just fabulous. Nothing is too much trouble. Hay and feed was provided and the young people at the stables are friendly, polite and so helpful. We rode in union woods which can be hacked to from the stables and have clearly marked... More

The inside... More

This is the best riding stables you could possibly go to. The riding instructors treat you like family and have brilliant horses for all types of riders.

While staying at the wonderful Markree Castle our family of 6 signed up for an hour trail ride but sadly the ride was very disappointing. We were surrounded by gorgeous fields but ended up being walked down the road by staff. The boys were lovely kids but it was very disappointing that we weren't riding through the fields and that...

Stayed at Markree Castle and had a lovely morning ride. I had not ridden for quite a few years, the horse chosen for me was just right. Enjoyed time spent in the arena and the barn with horses, dogs and puppy!

I sent an email 6 months ago to Markree Stables. I got an instant reply and a friend request from them on facebook. Caroline was great at making us feel welcome. The girls that tended to us was fabulous. The stables were immaculate and the horses were very well tended too. We even enjoyed the dogs. The ride went quickly... More

My daughter and I went riding, she has never ridden and it's be 40 years for me. Our guide was very good, made it fun and actually got me up on the very tall horse, Silver! The horses were gentle and well behaved. We had a great time. Thank you.
