This is a great place for kids. Very well run and in a great location. My 11 year old daughter has learned so much and really loves the treks. The ponies are so well mannered and well suited for all levels.

I'm doing an exchange program in Dublin and decided to check out the Paddocks riding centre. I was not disappointed. The instructors for lessons are really patient and improved my skills a ton. I would totally recommend this place to anyone visiting Dublin.

This was a pleasurable experience me and my family thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The ponies were beautiful and well trained as well as calm. They were obviously well cared for. The staff were supportive and reassuring. The trail was quite beautiful. I will definitely be returning.

We have always dreamed of visiting a riding center as good as this one. When we booked at short notice we were accommodated and we were very impressed with the facility and the staff.
