We turned up and the laid back atmosphere was true Ireland. Nice people, perfect horse for a beginner, and the most outstanding spectacular views for an hour on the beach. Ride out across the street and then up and down Kilahooey Strand. Fabulous.

What an experience. Good combination with the Arnolds Hotel. A lot of choice with the horses. Well educated horses with a good behaviour. We did 6 trials in one week. Beautiful beaches, natural scenery, spectacular views ! Thanks
