Moycullen Riding Centre is situated near Galway city, in the magnificent surroundings of the Connemara countryside. They offer one and two hour treks along bog roads and across mountains. Or why not try their beach ride on Rushing Bay off Galway Bay. Private and group lessons for beginners also available with qualified B.H.S.A.I instructor.

Unfortunately it took me a few attempts to reach out to them, but they are still giving rides. They are located off the beaten path in Galway. It is awesome. Goodluck and I hope you get to experience it
