I would rate this as one of my best itinerary in Ireland. Roger, the guide made our 1st time horse riding an easy experience. Beautiful scenery. Absolutely value for money and great way to enjoy beautiful greens in Ireland.

Beautiful trip in the Connemara mountains. The landscapes were beautiful! The guide was very friendly and he gave us a lot of explanations on the lakes, mountains, ruins and the history of his country! We were 4 peoples, including one very experimented and three novices. We all had an amazing time! Thanks again!

Roger was great and picked us up from town as backpackers we did not have cars and were taking public transit. The horses were well fed and cared for. As our group was a few different experience levels they helped us... More

Our hesitation was quickly won over by his reassurance and warmth. Our riding leader, Tom, was friendly and knowledgeable. The girls enjoyed talking with him and he seemed to enjoy the ride as much... More

On our recent trip to Ireland , a happy coincidence led us to the Knockillaree Centre and the brilliant young trainer, instructor, guide - Roger Joyce. With only a moment's notice, Roger led us on a spectacular trek into the insanely majestic mountains of Connemara. Through glistening mountain streams and cloud covered mountains, we were completely captivated by the raw... More
