I booked a 8-hour tour in Wicklow mountains which included 2 hours of horse riding but it turned out that we spent most of the time in the coach and the horse riding was 45 minute of training inside the stables and half an hour in a field close to the stables and not in the mountains. This activity do not worth the money I payed
Nevertheless, the guide and the staff of the stables are very nice people and the National park of Wicklow is amazing.
I suggest to check out the weather forecast and do not go in cloudy or rainy days

I'm very sorry to hear that you did not enjoy the tour. The stables do need assess the riders before bringing them out on the track for their personal safety. Maybe the weather wasn't great but very little we can do about that. We do the tour the other way round so activities in the afternoon if the weather is looking better then.

Spent most of the day looking at the museum. Don't forget to go on the last existing Titanic Tender outside, its cute! Staff at the museum were pretty much ho um as far as customer service goes.

Absolutely fantastic day - would definitely book with Hilltop Treks again. My sister and I enjoyed the one day tour to the Wicklow mountains national park and chose to add on the horse riding option which was absolutely brilliant. Horse riding on trails through the Wicklow mountains was the highlight of my trip to Ireland and each of the places we visited were lovely. Our guide, John, was very friendly and knowledgeable. We visited and walked area Glendalough, visited the PS I love you bridge, saw the biggest waterfall in Ireland, and enjoy a lovely homecooked lunch at a family run cafe in Enniskerry - again a lovely village to look around. Would recommend this tour to anybody. Thank you HilltopTreks!

Me and my friend from South Korea took a day tour to Wicklow on a very cold January day. It was fantastic!
Hilltoptrek is a small company, very friendly driver with a lot of knowledge about the area.
We had lunch in a great local eatery, and the driver made sure we were informed about pick up points after each walks.
The only downside was the weather ~ but that's nothing to do with the service !
I highly recommend Hilltoptrek , and most likely I will book with them again if I have the chance!
