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.

When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

There are not enough stars to give this experience. It was incredible from start to finish. I’ve done a good few different treks in Ireland but this surpasses all of them. I’m a novice rider who rides regularly so have some experience riding. The horse I was given was a dream (cobs are the best) & I throughly enjoyed the little canters we had up the trail. The stables are immaculate, the tack is fantastic & it’s obvious animal welfare is a high priority here (very important to me). Susan & all at the centre were incredibly hospitable and welcoming. Patrick was a great guide. I will definitely return again! Thanks so much for a wonderful experience!

A great experience for the whole family. Our daughters (10 and 12 years old) were looking forward to this part of our trip for weeks and were not disappointed. They loved it. We are all novice riders but the horses and guides were fantastic. The views were incredible. Highly recommended!

My mom and I did a private horse riding trail with Patrick! It was a beautiful sunny day and we trekked up a large nearby mountain and could overlook the cute town of Dingle from above, while also having views of the ocean and 360 views of mountains. It was peaceful and did not feel like it was too long (we did the hour long tour. Any longer for us may have been too much). Thanks Dingle Horse Riding!!!!

From the moment I was greeted by a big dog named Blue, I was in heaven. The guide, Patrick, was knowledgeable about the area and local history and made the ride quite enjoyable. The views from the top of the mountain were breathtaking. Though I have a background in English riding, it's not my strongest writing style. I was nervous at first, but Patrick paired me with an amazing horse, Heather, that was steady on her feet and excited to be out on the trail. Cantering down the path on Heather was some of the most fun I have had on a horse in a very long time. I was so happy with my experience that I came back the next week!! That trip was even better. It did rain during the ride (it is Ireland, after all) but afterward, I was taken inside for a hot whiskey and scones. Susan, the owner, sat and chatted with me for quite some time. She is so personable and sweet, and she really cares about her horses. I can't wait to go back someday!

Myself and two others loved this ride and the amazing views. We all did not have experience on a horse, but were able to feel comfortable on the ride. The business is run out of the owner’s home which is not advertised on the website. She is super friendly and made us tea and scones after the ride. A little pricy but we had a great experience!

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 !!

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!

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 !

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.
