Had such a great time today at Killarney Riding Stables!! I've never been on a horse before so I was a little nervous but all the horses are very well trained. We spent an hour going through Killarney National Park which is beautiful! We saw tons of wild deer which was really cool!! Had a great time! Would highly recommend!!

Cannot say enough about the horses - well trained, safe and dead quiet from trotting past sheet on the hillside to cantering on the beach. Great views of irish countryside. Would perhaps try elsewhere for something more lively and thrill-inducing. Donnie is great although provided lunches could be improved.

I can't recommend this location enough. From the moment we arrived the staff was extremely welcoming and you could tell the horses were very well taken care of. My friends and I did the hour long ride, which goes through Killarney National Park (in case you are wondering it does NOT go to Ross Castle which was fine with us... More

My daughter and I were thrilled to share a riding adventure in BEAUTIFUL Kerry Ireland. We took a five day trek ride and we LOVED IT! Our outfitter Mr.Donnie O'Sullivan was extremely conscientious about our well being and enjoyment! He has a strong commitment to both horse and rider in terms of safety and has wonderful "bomb proof" horses that... More

Joining a couple of other riders for a trek through the national park at Killarney, this was an excellent way to see the beautiful scenery of the national park whilst getting up close with the red deer. Red deer don't flee from riders on horseback as they would from walkers, so we got to within tens of metres of the... More

We are both beginners, so the 1 hour tour was a good fit for us. The staff was very friendly and informative, taking with us and the other 2 that were with us, explaining about the surroundings and the animals were saw, as well as on the horses, which it seemed they genuinely care for. There could have been more... More

The owner was kind enough to come pick us up at our hotel in Killarney. His team of trail leaders was outstanding. Couldn't ask for a friendlier or... More

As parents to an English Riding student, we really enjoyed our experience with riding in the park. Would recommend to anyone who enjoys being around animals in a natural environment.
