“Great way to see Wicklow and learn about Ireland's History”
Reviewed 1 September 2013

We had a great time with Wolftrek...we arrived and was warmly greeted to the stables by Ronan and Louise. We were quickly kitted up and put on our trusty steed for the day and shown the ropes of horse handling (which for a first time of riding a horse, was done very clearly so I had full confidence in keeping control of the horse) and then began our trek up the Wicklow hill side stopping for insights into Irish history involving the horse. From the Norman invasion of Ireland, to farming and agriculture, It was a great summation of the History of Ireland and also gave us some useful facts such as why we drive on the left! Thanks Ronan for sharing all that knowledge with us! Thanks also to Helen for helping to keep the horses from eating half of the countryside! All the best and thanks again from Josh, Richard, Hannah and Abi!

“A great experience with family and friends.”
Reviewed 22 August 2013 via mobile

Great family day out today at Wolftrek on our mini trek, we were very well catered for by Ronan and Louise, and Louise got the job entertaining our 5 year old son who had a great day horse back riding. This is a great way to relax for an hour or two and listen to great stories. Thanks Ronan an Louise, from James an co.......

“Excellent way to spend a few hours in a beautiful setting on horseback”
Reviewed 18 August 2013

We had a great day in blessington with wolftrek riding experience. We arrived 20mins early for our lesson and where welcomed straight away, given a quick introduction and then taken out on a very enjoyable trek across the countryside. The instructor was very knowledgeable and provided lots of very interesting facts about the history of the Irish horse which brought the whole experience to life in a lighthearted, friendly and entertaining trek across some very beautiful countryside.

“Great experience! Recommended!”
Reviewed 14 August 2013

As inexperienced riders, we took the mini-trek as a family of two adults and two children (11 and 7). We were made very welcome by this friendly family-run riding establishment and entertained by stories of the history of horses in Ireland as we enjoyed a placid ride and the beautiful Wicklow scenery. Our seven-year-old was a little nervous at first (it was her second time on a horse), but she soon had a smile on her face and later said that it was the best activity of our week's holiday in Ireland. Thanks, Wolftrek!

“Wolftrek was great fun”
Reviewed 3 August 2013

Ronan provided an informative and entertaining commentary on the history of the Irish horse. The back drop of the Wicklow mountains made it all the more special. Both my daughter's of 16 and 12 enjoyed the experience in a tranquil setting. A great way to enjoy a couple of hours and get a tot of whiskey (though adult's only).
