Excellent
Jul 2019 • Family
My granddaughters, aged10 and 11 rode here for 2 days, having a lesson followed by riding out. Raisin is an excellent teacher and the ponies were wonderful, with great attention paid to safety. I just had the riding with me this morning an am in awe of how much she absorbed (and retained) in just2 days of instruction! We will definitely be back when next in Connemara.

Fantastic Hack
Jul 2019 • Solo
I dropped into the stables on the off chance they would be able to book me into a ride (experienced rider but have not ridden in over a decade). I was booked into an afternoon advanced one hour hack, with two other riders and three members of staff to accompany.

Prior to the ride out, we spent 10 minutes in the school having a quick recap and assessment of our ability to walk/trot/canter, before quickly leaving the stables to the countryside.

The horses were incredibly well behaved, and they are very well trained. The staff were friendly, encouraging and very professional. The ride was fantastic with a good mix of hilly and flat terrain, and several opportunities to trot and canter. Prices were reasonable as expected - not overly priced.

Thank you all for a great afternoon! I only wish I had come on the first day of my trip and not the last, as I would have tried to squeeze in an additional ride. I will certainly be back and would strongly recommend.

Superb horse riding

My daughter attended the pony craft and camp here for a week over the summer. The setting is spectacular and the team professional and great with the kids. I would highly recommend for treks or lessons for all ages. Thank you for a great week.

Our two girls (ages 4&7) had a half hour rein led pony ride at the Errislannan riding center and absolutely loved it. Riding hats, boots and jackets are provided at no extra charge. The horses and staff were all delightful. We’ll definitely return.

35 beautiful Connemara ponies, talented and devoted staff, gorgeous surroundings, everything to suit beginners and more advanced riders. I couldn't recommend Errislannan more highly.

a magical hidden place
Apr 2017 • Couples
I cannot rate this properly as I did not avail of the pony riding nor did I have the nerve to push into the gardens. We stopped out of curiosity as I thought my grandchildren might like to go pony riding should they come to Clifden again. I merely walked from the car park to the house, stepped over the dog sleeping in the warm April sun and turned to look at the view from the house. What an exquisite silent place. The vista opens out from the surrounding trees to display a clear peaceful lake. I just wanted to stay there. I could hear some sounds of life in the distance, from the stables I gathered so I returned to the car. It must be a wonderful place to bring someone to ride a pony.

Visit with two teenages
Aug 2016 • Family
The riding school is easy to find and we'll sign posted.
The lesson was for two teenage girls who have never been on a house before.
The girls spent half a hour in the school being shown the basics and the half a hour trek. The girls were well supervised and given great instruction one to one.
Despite the poor weather and rain the girls really enjoyed it.
I would recommend this place.
The staff very friendly and knowledgeable.

Beautiful location, wonderful staff

Location is absolutely fabulous, pure wild Connmara.
Staff are very helpful, friendly and knowledgable - horses picked for 2 kids (6 and 4) were perfect each time. Large selection of protective gears from kids to adults.

Wonderful riding experience for all levels!
Jul 2016 • Family
Both my toddler daughter and I had wonderful rides here! For a little one a very safe pony hand-led on a beautiful route, and for me a couple of rides.
I recommend that you tell them your ability level when booking so they can be sure you will be with a like-level group. The ponies are exceptionally well cared for, the equipment top-notch and the accompanying staff very experienced, kind and safe.
My first ride was slow and steady, with beautiful scenery and well-behaved ponies. The second was a real treat, with some cantering and a thrilling ascent to the high field for amazing views!
One of the best riding stables I have ever experienced.
