One of the best horse back riding experiences we have ever been on! The people working at Mountain View Horse Riding Centre are extremely personable and very knowledgeable. We took the 2 hour riding experience and I can say that next time we will be looking to take the 4 hour! Peter Williams was an outstanding guide and doesn’t give... More

My darling daughters decided to take me to Ireland for my 70th birthday, and we would go riding there of course! I am a life long equestrian and always dreamed of riding there. Both my daughters were brought up on horses, but had been away from them for years. They were still game to ride with me. After reading the... More

I'm an equestrian and I knew when I visited Ireland, I needed to ride a horse. The rest of my family, however, weren't too sure about it. I found Mountain View online and booked the hour Dirt Trek Trail (I would've gone on the longer trails if I had my choice). The trail was perfect for the rest of my... More

Seriously just stop what you're doing and come to this place and ride some horses over the Irish countryside. Peter is the best host I have ever come across and will make you feel part of the family in the first five minutes. His horses are amazing, the property and location are amazing. what better way than to spend some... More

Ok, I'm the girl that has fantasized about riding in the Irish countryside on horseback ever since she was a kid. So booking this ride was really important to me as my husband and I planned our Irish vacation. I deliberated quite a bit over which length of ride to choose (if you don't ride much, just bear in mind... More

Thank you to Peter and your lovely guide - our teenage daughters had an amazing time! We booked the 2 hour beach ride for them which was such an experience. Our girls set off in the horse box whilst we followed in the car, then they trekked through the countryside and down onto the beach and even into the sea.... More

What an unforgettable experience! This was my first time to Ireland and seeing it on horseback was amazing. It was also my first time using an "Irish" Saddle (AKA English Saddle) so it was an adjustment not having the security of a "horn" to hold on to like a Western saddle. Peter (AKA Theodore) and Alex were awesome! Thanks for... More

Our favorite part of our visits to Ireland! Peter took us and the horses out to the beach in his transport truck. We took a short trek above the beach on the side of the burren followed by a great time on the beach. We had multiple canters around followed by some time in the water. Peters horses are so... More
