Mountain view and it's owner Peter were highly recommended by our B&B owner. We called that morning and Peter changed around his plans to accommodate our schedule and make it happen for us. All four of us were first time riders and he did a great job showing us the ropes. It was a great experience for the whole family... More

If you are looking to spend some time on a horse back in Ireland this is definitely the place to do it. The Irish Gypsy cobs are all in great condition and good natured. As we booked on very short notice we had the pleasure of having Peter, the owner, taking us out personally. Our small group consisted of one... More

It's a really nice way to visit the burren. The horses are super friendly and the guides gives you a lot of information.

Today I was on a 4hours trail ride at Mountain View Horse Riding! I can HiGHLY RECOMMEND riding there! I have done a few trail rides so far, and that one was one of the best! The horses are very well kept, in good shape and well trained! Peter the owner and guide, grown up here, has a big knowledge... More

We decided on a whim and the encouragement of our horse enthusiast daughter to spend a portion of our last day in Ireland going horseback riding along the Cliffs of Mohr. it was a great decision! We booked a 2 hour ride and were glad we did instead of the one hour ride because it gave us much better views... More

Have done the 2 hour trek with a good friend of mine yesterday. Absolutely great experience. Horses seem very calm and relaxed. Peter did a great job. He was entertaining, choose the horses for each rider carefully and cared about the people in the group. I personally haven`t been on a horse in years and had an accident the time... More

We booked at 2 hour trek while visiting Ireland for our honeymoon in April and we are so glad we did! It was such a great experience. Peter was absolutely fantastic when I called to book and gave us some great tips for the rest of our honeymoon in Ireland. Neither my husband or I have any horseback riding experience... More

It wasn't our first time to Mountain View Horse Riding center and won't be out last! We went out with Peter several times while in Ireland and each trip out was wonderful. We rode in groups from just the two of us to a group of six. Peter did an excellent job matching each of us to the appropriate horse... More
