About
Welcome to Dingle Horse Riding. Set on the dramatic and beautiful west coast of Ireland, we specialise in two hour to week long riding holidays for experienced riders, taking in all the beauty and exhiliration of the mountains and beaches the Dingle Peninsula has to offer. We also offer one hour mountain rides for novice/beginner riders.Our horses are mostly Irish sporthorses, with some draught, cob and appaloosa, ranging from 14hh to 17hh. We pride ourselves in having happy, well-cared for and well turned out horses, friendly knowledgeable guides and great routes designed for both fantastic riding and views. Beginner/novice riders can only be taken on the 1 hour mountain ride. Only riders intermediate/advanced experienced in the English style of riding, able to post/rising trot and ride two point/forward seat in canter can be taken to the beaches. Riders will be assessed in the arena before leaving the yard, and during the one hour ride. In the interests of safety, and at the discretion of the guide, riders judged to be beginner/novice or inexperienced in an English style of riding will not be taken to the beach.

Highlight of our staycation
Aug 2021 • Couples
My partner and I both completed this trail today. We are both novices and were worried about how the day would pan out, we had absolutely nothing to worry about ! The whole experience was excellent and we were put at ease straight away. Both of our horses were so calm,gentle and well mannered. The route we went on was breath taking and the views were incredible. After the ride we were treated with a special surprise of hot scones, tea and wonderful company including some lovely dogs. I had originally booked for a different day but the owner Susan was so helpful in rearranging a new date for us. I 100% would reccomened this experience to a friend and would love to go back again. A special thank you to Patrick and Mille, our guides who made the experience so enjoyable. Thank you so so much. 10 out of 10 !!

Best experience in dingle
Aug 2021 • Couples
This was an amazing experience. Our guides and host were all lovely and they picked the perfect horses for us to ride. My husband had never been on a horse and I have about 18-20 years of experience, but the guides found horses and a route that suited us both. Very well done and all together the perfect horseback experience! Would be great for both couples, solo and families with older children!

Shamrock Trail for family of novice riders
Jul 2021 • Family
We done the Shamrock Horse-Riding trek on 10/7/21 as a family of 5. From start to finish it was the best experience of our holiday. The owner Susan and her staff were simply brilliant. The views of Dingle were breathtaking but the guides (Sophie & Charmaine) could not have done enough for us. Absolutely great value for money, and the trip finished with tea and scones in Susan's beautiful home, with some very excited and friendly dogs. An experience we'll never forget !

Wonderful experience for rookie riders!
Sep 2019
As novice riders we booked the Shamrock Trail trek and had an unbelievable experience. Our guides were friendly and helpful, and the ride up above Dingle was breathtaking. We all agreed this was one of the best experiences of our trip throughout Ireland. We'd love to come back for another ride, and would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to truly experience the beauty of Ireland.

First of what I hope to be many

Few words can describe the experience of riding with the Dingle Riding Team. Few pictures can capture the beauty of the vistas to be seen, the selection of horses to ride, and the talent and care of the Staff. I have not only fulfilled a long time wish, I am compelled to consider my next trip.

The scenery was superb and we had a stop at a view point to take photos with my mobile phone. Lovely long canters along mountain tracks.

Truly A Magical Experience...
Jul 2019 • Friends
My friend and I booked a horseback riding trip online with Dingle Horseriding. It took about 20 minutes to walk there from downtown Dingle. We were classified as Beginners because we are both from the USA and are used to riding Western Saddle. If you wanted to ride faster you were tested in the ring on English saddle. We had a 2 hour trip in the afternoon. There were five of us with three guides. The views were spectacular and the horses were very tame. You are provided with a helmet and boots. This is definitely an experience not to be missed! It’s probably THE highlight of our trip. You are literally riding in the mountains with the sheep!

Staff was friendly and knowledgeable and safe. Horses were beautiful and friendly. Two hour ride through stunning Dingle landscape up on top of a hill overlooking the city. Lots of sheep! Good for our family of beginners. Thanks to the staff for a great ride!

Incredible experience
Jun 2019 • Couples
This was a highlight of our trip to Ireland! Simply wonderful experience. Incredible views, lovely horses and an all-around amazing experience. Additionally, as a beginner rider, I felt comfortable the entire time and appreciated owner's attention to safety. I loved chatting with the guides and learning about their lives and culture. I would HIGHLY recommend this experience to anyone. Thank you to the ladies of Dingle for giving us a once-in-a-lifetime experience!
