Ride Along Dazzling Beaches and Enjoy the Countryside from Horseback
A unique way to discover some of the most breathtaking scenery in the west of Ireland is on horseback. This riding centre is situated right beside the Atlantic Ocean. With the Twelve Bens as a backdrop, the Atlantic at your feet, the picturesque fishing village of Roundstone and the colourful town of Clifden only a few miles away, it doesn't come any more scenic than this!
All rides are accompanied by experienced staff. They will guide your groups and their horses safely along the dazzling sandy beaches and wide-open countryside. They organize treks to suit every level of riding. The ponies and horses are all very well behaved and well-schooled. The beginner's trek will go along the beaches and coastline. People who have never been on a horse before are held on a lead rope by one of the staff.
