I was treated to a private trek for my birthday and couldn't have enjoyed it more. The staff and facilities are great. The views on the trek were stunning. It was a great way to spend my birthday. Our instructor Andrea was a really lovely girl and guided us through everything brilliantly. She has a true passion and that showed.

My wife and I went for a one hour trek. The stables are located right next to M11(M50?) and the first impression may be put off by the noise from the traffic, but don't worry you will leave the traffic-noise on your trek. I have almost no experience with riding horses and found the experience fun. My wife has more... More

I would love to be able to write a review about this stable but despite sending several emails to them no one has bothered to reply. Very poor customer relations.

I was in Dublin from the states and this was probably the best experience of the trip. The facility felt like stepping back into time, in a good way. Everything was so peaceful and beautiful. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, as we had a group of 8 pretty inexperienced riders. The views were amazing along the trek as... More

Everyone was friendly and we all had a great ride. Horses were well cared for and they took care to keep our 6 year old son safe and happy.

We went for a a first time family riding experience this weekend (using a gift token) and it was wonderful. Yvonne our instructor took us on a mini-trek up the mountains and down again and it was great fun. Our two young boys had a great time and loved the experience. So did my wife and I. I got the...

Myself and my partner went on a 2 hour ride out. This is the second time we have been to brennantown equestrian centre. On both occasions the staff were very friendly and helpful which added to the experience. The horses were great and very well cared for. The lands they have available are extensive and the scenery is just breathtaking.... More

A fantastic trek. From the yard through some beautiful forest and on up into the fields at the foot of the Wicklow mountains for a good canter. Then onto a small but well maintained Cross Country course. Excellent surroundings and beautiful Horses. Many thanks to Louise and the rest of the staff.

What a great trek! I arrived at the stables and was met by friendly, relaxed staff (and a waggy tailed stray dog one of the staff had taken under her wing). As you walk in you can see immediately how well looked after the stables and the horses are. We all mounted at the school and did a little bit... More
