“Trail riding at its best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2014

These stables are top notch in every category. The facility is well maintained, the horses are very obviously well treated and cared for and the rides are tailored to the abilities of the riders. Add to that the incredible scenary and you have the makings of a perfect ride. They broke up our 2 hour ride into 2 groups which allowed my husband and I the opportunity to canter while our friend was able to stay with the trotting group. The guides were informative and lovely. If we are ever back in the area, we would go back to this stable to ride.

“Well run, friendly staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2014

Efficient, well run operation. Well trained & well cared for horses. The trek was mixed ability riders which limited the amount of cantering however the scenery in the National Park was more than enough to compensate. I would have liked an opportunity to get to know the feel of the horse a little before the trek.

“Active adventurous horseback ride in Killarney Park!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014

One of the best experiences in Ireland!! Our entire family of nine had a gentle horseback ride through Killarney National Park. The experts took just our family and it was a not-to-be missed ride through the early morning dew , with the chance to absorb the stupendous, peaceful views. The ages and riding expertise levels were highly varied within the family. The owners had emailed me to ascertain the specific needs of each rider. Great care was taken. The site provides riding boots and helmets. My two granddaughters, 8 and 14 years old will never forget the experience and it was great for the whole family to do something active, a bit adventurous and a true Irish-beauty experience ! Highly recommended.

“Relaxing and visually stimulating ride”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2014

Our 3-hour ride led by Honor was easily the most tranquil and beautiful part of our trip to Ireland. The girls at the stable were so welcoming and accomodating to us. Our guide made the ride more fun by incorporating plenty of trots. Trust me, it's worth every penny!
