Breathtaking Beach, Cliffs, Riding... Everything!
Aug 2019
My parents and I were taking a cross country road trip across Ireland and we knew one of the activities we had to do was horseback riding on the beach. After reading reviews and checking prices we settled on Moycullen Riding Center. They exceeded our expectations in every way. The horses were extremely well cared for and seemed just as excited as we were to get going! We arrived at the beach and our guide assigned us horses based on temperament and riding experience. The views were incredible, the guide was knowledgable, and the experience was unforgettable.

Horse riding

I contacted Tom at the stables by phone and booked a trek to the beach for the following day. We trailered the horses for a short distance -10 min drive and unloaded at the beach. I am an experienced rider and was lucky to be the only rider with Tom. We had a fabulous ride with lots of trotting and cantering in the different terrain of the oceans floor. It was definitely a highlight of my vacation. Stables are clean and the horses well cared for and great temperaments! You won’t be disappointed!

Great guide, great horses & beautiful scenery

This ride was such a treat! On our drive out to the Centre it was raining and luckily, the rain stopped just after we arrived. As it turned out, we were the only ones signed up for the ride at that time (group of 3) so we ended up with a private ride. Our guide was friendly and chatty and we had a nice conversation all about the land, history, clean energy, vacations in America, work, family, life.... We took a nice walk out along the bog and took a little break where we had a gorgeous view of the bog land and the Connemara mountains. Our guide kindly read my mind and asked if he could take a picture of us for me (thank you!). My kid even got to ride a true Connemara pony :) The Centre was easy to find, had good parking & got us situated with helmets. I had booked online and didn't have any issue with our reservation etc. Everything went smoothly & it was a great excursion on our vacation.

Wonderful experience, despite extreme weather conditions!

My husband and I are beginners and our daughter is an experienced rider. The Moycullen staff loaded 8 horses/Connemara ponies, one for each of the riders in our group, into a trailor and brought us to a quiet coast on a blustery August day. We rode along the coast and then through shallow water onto a sandy flat area. The guide helped my husband and me with our horses while the other riders enjoyed total control of theirs. Rain and wind lashed us and the guide (not on horseback) continued to make the ride enjoyable, never intimating that he wanted to stop, only wanting us all to have a great experience. The other riders had the opportunity to gallop at full speed, several times, across the wide expanse of sandy land, having the time of their lives! My husband and I felt safe and satisfied with our more mild ride. We can't say enough about this wonderful experience and the staff at Moycullen. We would do this again!!

Beach ride
Aug 2019 • Family
We had a great few hours at Rusheen Bay with Tom.
The horses were well cared for and suitable for all the riders. Having spent lots of time in Galway... this was an incredible way to experience parts we’ve never seen before.
Will definitely be back 👍🏻

Excellent visit
Aug 2019 • Family
Really enjoyed our visit to Moycullen Riding Stables yesterday. There were 8 of us; 5 adults and 3 kids. We went on a bog trek and Tommy, Tom, Alice, Olivia and another young girl came out with us. Most of us are inexperienced riders (with 2 of the kids never haven ridden before) and each of the team filled us with confidence. They were friendly, personable and took time with all of us. I would definately recommend these stables
