My boyfriend and I went for a trek yesterday. It was his first time on a horse and despite my initial worries the trek went very very well. We both got amazing horses (Con & Angel, you rock!) and had the time of our lives. The weather was stunning, the views breathtaking and the whole 1.5 hr was spent smiling... More

Myself and my Girlfriend were here only last week, despite the weather not being great we had a amazing time! Roger was so friendly and more than welcoming and showed us all the ropes with Angel and Elaine. He kept us entertained for the full 90mins showing us all the amazing views, and told us about all the local surroundings... More

My daughter had specifically tasked me with finding a jumping lesson! Rogers vast experience provided her with excellent tuition which was both informative and confidence building, on a great pony. Everyone was so friendly and the horses were lovely. We all learnt alot and had a really enjoyable morning to which we have to thank Knockillaree.

Knockillaree Riding Centre is beautifully situated in the Connemara area, a short drive from Galway City. My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our recent visit there. The location has breathtaking views of the mountains and rugged terrain. The more time you spend there, the more you appreciate how the light transforms the landscape with each passing hour of the day.... More

It was raw, pure, horse riding at it's best. Whether you're a complete novice or competent rider, you'll be in safe hands. Roger and his crew are knowledgeable, intuitive and respectful of both horse and rider. Laced with Irish humour, this is a recipe destined to please. Enjoy your ride, we did
