just a great day out!
Jul 2021
what can i say?? an excellent experience from start to finish. having never sat on a horse before in my life, the staff here were courteous, helpful and patient. my steed, a giant named Tiddles was perfect and myself, son and his girlfriend had a wonderful time on our 2 hr trekl through the breathtaking scenery. it was a little dull and damp at times but this added to the trek. helmets and boots were supplied and at €75 per head for 2+ hours, outstanding value for money. go here.... you wont be disappointed!!

Absolutely in Love with Rusheen😍 Tipperary Mountain Trekking Centre is such an amazing place ! My horse Terry and I have been lucky enough to spend a lot of time with Clare and Lily over the last few months. Their patience and expertise were second to none. Their care and attention to each and every horse is just brilliant. Terry has been there on livery and I knew coming home the first day he’d be well taken care of . He’s absolutely spoilt by both Lily and Claire and I don’t think he’ll want to come home ! Over the course of the last few months I’ve been on many treks and the knowledge that the instructors have of the geography and local history adds so much to the whole experience. Terry has excelled in the short amount of time he has lived in Rusheen and has benefitted soo much from the top class physios, dentists and farriers all organised by Tipperary Mountain Trekking Centre. Terry has been treated so well, like one of their own and I really can’t thank the girls enough for the help and support and guidance I’ve received! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Thank you Kate for your lovely review. We are so happy that Terry has enjoyed his stay here and that you have found our input useful. We are sure, though, that when he comes home, Terry will be delighted to have you all to himself, and we wish you many lovely pampering and schooling sessions together. Clare and Lily xx

Happy out pony trekking in Tipperary
Aug 2020
Our family of four had a fantastic experience at Tipperary Mountain Trekking Centre. Our 6 year old chose horse riding as his holiday adventure, so we made a booking. However, we're all beginners so there were quite a few nerves, but we were in such good hands with Claire, Lily & Emer. They immediately put us at ease and allowed us to get used to our horses in the sand arena before bringing us on a great trek through the wonderfully scenic and historic land around the centre. Claire was extremely informative and both Lily and Emer were so attentive and interested in the children. We thoroughly enjoyed the trek, and the chat, and when next in Tipperary would love to come back.

Fantastic
Aug 2020 • Family
Wonderful place. We were 3 complete beginners and 1 of us extremely nervous! Claire, Lily and helpers were all so patient and kind. They made sure we were all comfortable in the arena before taking us on the trek. You can tell they care deeply for their horses. The trek was AMAZING. Scenery was fantastic and Claire so informative. Was very reluctant about getting on a horse but so glad I did. Wonderful fun experience for all ages. I can’t recommend this place highly enough. Would love to return again.

Beautiful Horses, People and Countryside
Jul 2020
Tipperary Mountain Trekking Centre is a great place run by two of the most welcoming people. All the horses are really happy and well cared for. The views around the place are spectacular. I couldn’t recommend this place enough to anyone who loves horses, good company and beautiful countryside.

Amazing experience!
Jul 2020
It was one our best stay-cation experiences this year, and really worth the hassle of travelling so far. Clare, the owner, was very flexible with our booking date and time. Everything was well organised...even the weather. We took an over two-hour trip to the mountains, where we could admire stunning views of Tipperary surroundings while riding. Clare made it even more enjoyable and valuable by telling us all about the local history, archaeology and old legends on the way! All the fascinating information and a friendly chat made this whole experience very personal, unlike most other activities out there where you are just a customer. We really loved it! The horses and the trail were perfectly adjusted to our riding level. The price is very fair considering all the extras and effort the company makes to makes to keep their riders happy. We really do recommend trying it out, and we will definitely be back for more!
