I have been riding for 20+ years and always worry that I will be bored with a group ride or trail riding barns but Killarney Riding Stables was amazing. I was very impressed by their guides, their operator and the facilities itself. I was put on a fantastic Irish Sporthorse that was just a real joy to ride. The park... More

If you are a farmer or outdoor enthusiast and don't feel that you've been somewhere unless you get to get out and touch and feel the countryside, this experience is for you! We booked a three hour ride and hadn't been on horses for over five years so it was a stretch. But well worth it. We saw red deer,... More

We did the 2 hour trail and from the outset they were amazing, All the girls in the stables were lovely, calmed our initial nerves, helped us on our horses and told us what to do. As absolute beginners we couldn't have been better matched... More

I don't ride, but my wife is a very accomplished rider. When we booked our trip to Ireland to coincide with her birthday week, I knew we needed to do something special for her birthday. Killarney Riding Stables provided her just that. She had a fantastic ride through the National Park and could not stop raving about how beautiful, majestic... More

I went on the two hour trail ride within Killarney National Park, and was picked up at my hostel by Donnie. The stables are large, clean and professional and they provide a wide range of helmets and rubber boots. I had the great fortune of being the only guest on the ride. The ride was led by Kiara, and I... More

Just returned from a five day horseback riding trip around the Ring Of Kerry. The stable owner Donie O'Sullivan is an expert at matching his horses to vacationing riders. The horses are well trained and cared for and you feel their enjoyment of being out in the beautiful countryside. My horse and I were a true team and every moment... More

This is a must activity for horse lovers holidaying in Killarney. I went on the one hour trail with my boyfriend early on a Saturday morning. It was so beautiful as we went riding around the Killarney National Park. We walked through a large herd of wild deer which was a once in a life time experience and we got... More
