This was my first time riding outside of the United States and my first time riding English, which I have not been trained in, so I was actually a little worried about my... More

Absolutely amazing way to look over the stunning views around Killarney National Park. This one one of the best experiences we had on holiday. Very friendly and informative staff. The horses were beautiful and really safe and well trained. This was such a treat and I would definitely do it again!

** would have been 'average' except for Lorraine ** Being an animal lover, the best thing you could do is take me to a stable. We rode with a small group and the guide Lorraine was phenomenal. Personal and cheery, she runs a tight ship and is very clearly respected by the stable hands. Ride through Killarney's National Park was... More

Mine was a comfortable and pleasant ride for the entire distance. The saddlebags were large enough to stash my raincoat or vest so I... More

My husband and I did the 2 hour ride, it was absolutely wonderful! Safe, quiet horses and nice staff. The views of Killarney National Park were just lovely! I'm an experienced rider but had a great horse and enjoyed every minute!

Throughout my trip in Ireland this was one of the best hours that I spent . I got to see some breathtaking views as we trekked through the Killarney National Park . The best part was when the Deer were passing us by, just 5 feet away from us . The guides were really friendly and the horses were the... More

Wonderful outing for my preteen daughter, who has some riding experience, and myself, with almost no riding experience. Lorraine, our guide, was amazing! She was both knowledgable and entertaining. The horses we were given were perfect for our needs and experience. Would highly recommend!
