My husband and I have been talked into a lot of "vacation trail rides" by our horse loving daughter, but this was one of the best experiences ever. The horses were all super sweet, calm, and well-trained, so much so that was actually able to relax and enjoy the ride. Don't let the weather deter you, it rained a little,... More

Absolute great! Riding at the Lake, between red deers and in the park in small groups. Fascinating and the price is not to high.

As we were over Kerry for just a weekend, we only went for a 2-hour ride. Our guides Lorraine & Chiara were really friendly, and took into account the different level of the participants : those of us who could ride enjoyed two sessions of canter in the mud - so much fun! - while the beginners went on a...

I was on the 5 day ring of Kerry ride Early August 2015. The guides were able to keep everyone happy in our group of riders with differing levels of ability. We walked a lot but had plenty of long canters, especially on beaches. Long Trots on small back roads were also included and were loads of fun. The Horses... More

We booked an hour beginners ride. We got picked up from central Killarney to start off with, which was very nice of the staff. But when we got to the stable there was not much of an introduction to the place or the horses that were picked out for us. We sat off pretty much straight away. We saw some... More

I took part in a two day trail ride at the beginning of August. Having not had much riding experience I was very nervous when I first arrived as I did not know what to expect, but was instantly put at ease by the very kind staff. . The horses were wonderful and very well kept I had the pleasure... More

Our group included three absolute beginner riders (the youngest just 10 years old) as well as one moderately experienced adult and one (myself) who has been riding for years. The two guides assigned to our group were friendly, knowledgeable and helpful, putting the beginners at ease while also allowing me to do more fun, "advanced" stuff. We signed up for... More
