We went to Ireland with a tentative plan to go horseback riding somewhere, and were so glad we wound up here. It was recommended to us by the proprietor of our B&B in Clifden, who was kind enough to make reservations for us the morning we wanted to go. We did a 3.5 hour ride to Omey Island, and our guide, Colette, was so nice. One of us was a very experienced rider, the other had never ridden before, but they selected great horses for us and we both had a very pleasant ride. The scenery both on the trails through the countryside and down on the beach was absolutely gorgeous. This was one of our favorite experiences in Ireland!

Came an overcast day for the 1.5 hour ride and had the most amazing time. Luckily, they had an amazing array of boots and helmets for us, since we came ill prepared for the ride. After a quick walk/trot around the ring, we went off. The experience questionnaire and legal release were nicely prepared, so we were well matched with our horses. Sergio did a fantastic job of leading the ride, monitoring the horses, and telling us about the area. We really got a ride & area tour for the price of one. The highlight was cantering along the beach; it was the perfect outing to explore Connemara & spend some time on horseback.

HIghly recommend to anyone visiting the area & some experience on horseback.

Went for a 1.5 hr ride with my 7yr old who is a novice. The horses and ponies are very calm . Boots and hats are provided. The instructors are very good and experienced.

We booked the 3.5 hour ride. From the start, Judy, the manager was very helpful and let us know what to expect. We were 2 novices, 1 intermediate and 1 very experienced. We were in a group with several children. The stables had full equipment to borrow (including boots, which is unusual but very good). We were given a short lesson before heading out, which was particularly good to assess the riders skills. The horses were lovely, in extremely good condition, and were well-matched for the riders. The experienced rider had a lovely gallop, and the ride was managed very well. I would highly recommend this experience for riders of all levels.
