We are a family run stables, set in the heart of the dramatic, timeless, unspoilt scenery that is the Wicklow mountains. The Maguire farm runs along the Kings River on the lower side while on the higher side, rust coloured bogs and granite stone wall framed fields, make this a landscape of extraordinary beauty. Experienced or novice riders alike can enjoy riding out over this hidden landscape
