We were given a choice of horseback riding or a trip to see their lookout over 7 counties of Northern Ireland! Very cold the day we visited! It even had sleet outside for a few minutes!

We were greeted and after a quick toilet break shown to our horses. We had our own gear but they have a room full of boots and hats so no worries if you don't have... More

Visited here twice now and each time we have had a great experience trekking. No prior experience required. My husband and kids (7/8) had never been on a horse before and throughly enjoyed it. Was so lovely to ride horses out in the countryside, beautiful scenery. Even got to cuddle baby lambs born that morning. Riding boots and hats provided.... More

We had a lovely time at Sheane's. They couldn't have been more helpful. Kevin was fantastic with a good line in chat which kept us all going. The horses were great and careful with the girls. The scenery was really nice. I think it's the best trekking experience we have had.

Despite the weather taking an unfortunate turn for the worst, this was still an amazing day out! Not only is the location stunning for breath taking scenery while riding, but the staff and everyone involved are some of the most lovely people I've ever met, made the whole experience worth while. You can also tell that the horses are fit... More

Thanks to Danny, I enjoyed a fantastic horseback riding journey around the farm and in the surrounding areas of beautiful Ballycastle. He also arranged a full-day coach tour of the spectacular landscapes in the county including some 'Game of Thrones' filming locations. I learned a lot about horse riding as well as the history and culture of Northern Ireland. Danny's... More

We learned about the history of Northern Ireland, met the horses and cut peat chunks from the ground. It was a nice touch to our visit in Northern Ireland.
