Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
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.

    We had the most wonderful beach ride as a family. Helena and Marlene were incredibly attentive to our mixed levels of experience. As an experienced rider, I found the horses responsive and great fun to ride and equally my son/daughter, as beginners, were both lead by the two instructors.

    The scenery was marvellous and it was so great to be back on a horse (the lovely Daisy!) in beautiful surroundings and good company. Helena made us feel so relaxed and welcome (I have been on many yards where the instructor can be stuffy and rude - I could have talked to Helena about horses for longer!)

    The horses were extremely well cared for and the whole booking process was easy from start to finish. An excellent trek that we would happily return to on our next visit. Thank you so much Carrowholly Stables.

    I highly recommend a trip to Dummindoo stud Westport.
    Lots of well kept horses to see, I booked a carriage ride for my mums 70th Birthday as a surprise. Loved every minute of it. Everyone enjoyed the experience thanks to Paddy joe for making us feel very welcome and looked after us the whole time.
    The beautiful horse that pulled the carriage was Very calm and put us at ease, we had two young children in our family group, they loved the experience. They loved Podge the horse that pulled the cart.
    Very friendly family run business.
    Would love to do it again!!!

    Great day out with lots to do with the family pass. I got to visit the house which is fantastic, we also had a paddle on the swans and Tiny Town is good for the little ones. My kids went on the pirate plunge 5 times! Staff are really friendly, especially Siofra at the gate 😊

    Great big interpretive center with helpful staff. Cafe closed for winter . Nice walks on solid paths and good views as you go up the hills.

    Ferry experience from Roonagh to Clare Island and back was great. Clare Island Ferries was very flexible when we asked to move our reservation to another day due to weather forecast changes.

    Wow. What a statement this memorial makes. About the people who died here in Ireland during the famine and the people who risked everything to travel to a new world. It’s set at the base of Croagh Patrick as well. Worth a visit.

    This was probably one of the best theatrical experiences of the last few years. A triumph of collaboration between artists and the community.

    We only stopped by here briefly on route home after a day out on the greenway but the exhibition was small but interesting and the kids were very interested by the outdoor classroom where the staff showed them creatures from a recent pond dipping session, along with bones and stuffed/preserved animals to view magnified. We missed the children’s activity session but I think if you plan to go it’s worth checking if they have anything on at a particular time.

    My daughter attended Croagh Patrick Stables summer camp and was very happy to be its participant. She attended both beginners and improvers' camps and wanted to be back there again and again. There was much fun and communication with horses. And now we decided to take riding lessons.

    There were 4 adults and 3 kids from 8 to 13 and they were all able to participate.
    Everyone had to work together to solve the puzzles
    Everyone had a fantastic time.
    Even younger kids would enjoyed the spookyness of it.
    Would highly recommend.
    Looking forward to trying the other rooms in the future.
