“Miles of sand”

Burke's Beach Riding
Ranked #3 of 9 things to do in Glenbeigh
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 23 June 2014

When the tide is out on Rossbeigh beach you have so much exposed sand it takes 2 hours to go right out to the end and back. Also there are dunes for a bit of fun. Burkes have very good, well-cared-for Irish Cobs for any ability. If you can ride they will go well, if not they will take care of you. Experienced riders be warned, 1 hour rides are aimed at beginners and he only allows walk and trot. You must go for 2 hrs for a faster ride. It's brilliant!! Sadly, due to silly people, he does not easily trust new riders' estimations of their riding ability, but once you have proved yourself capable he may let you ride one of his gorgeous Irish Sport Horses. Lovely!! Great value as not so expensive as some stables in the area. Highly recommended.

We booked the day before since we wanted to take each day as it comes.
We had been all morning walking on the beach and saw the horses going around. We were really looking forward to our afternoon booking.
It was really nice but it only lasted an hour.
If you are thinking of booking make sure you agree how long it will take, because we spend 15 minutes on the road to reach the beach, 5 minutes to go down to it, 15 minutes on it around the people that bathing, then we took a picture, 15 minutes back on the beach around the people that bathing, 5 to the road and 15 minutes of road.
We missed riding on the deserted part of the beach. Make sure you agree on what you are getting.
But it is really worth while.

Just returned from Ireland with our special friends, and while the men, played golf, myself and my best friend went horse riding for the morning with Burke's Horse Trekking Centre. Thankyou Gerard for a fantastic day. It was my best friends birthday and we both are able to ride, we had Tango and Ginger and a fantastic ride round the mountain and gallop along the beach. Gerard was informative and told us about the area, but we were most impressed how he cared about us, always checking that we were safe and happy and enjoying the ride. Gerard is a gentleman looking after two ladies who had a memorable two hours, Thank you

We were over from Canada to see the coast where my partner worked in the fisheries some 50 yrs ago and being horse people we really wanted to find a ride on the fabulous beach on Rossbeigh, and find it we did! On recommendation of Brenda at the Rossbeigh beach house (an excellent place to stay) we found Gerald at Burke's and what a ride we had! Fabulous horses, well trained and kind and fabulous views, if you are coming this way and desire a ride this is the place to go!! Full recommendations from us! Thanks Paddy and Tango, will always remember
