5 day ride through the mountain pass and beaches was breaktaking. Staff very professional and knowledgable. Riding the Irish cob horses through the country side was amazing. Horses were strong and well matched to the rider. We are going to do this again!!

We booked a three day ring of kerry ride for a pretty substantial fee. First it was really only two days of riding and given the cost that was a real minus. The lodging provided was just above shabby and in one case not above...More

Excellent experience from the onset as the guides were careful to pair experience/weight/height when choosing horses for each guest. The ride through Killarney National Park was beautiful with often changing views. The less experienced riders did get to trot several times while those more experienced...More

We really enjoyed our horseback riding adventure with Killarney Riding Stables. We saw the most amazing and breath-taking views in Ireland on this trek. We rode along in Killarney National Park. You should include this in your Killarney-area Ireland vacation.
