My daughter happened to be turning 5 while we were visiting Ireland from the United States and as luck would have it, we were due to visit Enniskerry a day before her birthday. I started looking around to see what the area had to offer and I was so excited to find a stable, my daughter is a horse fanatic... More

Myself and my mother purchased 2 hours tracking in Killegar stables in summer 2013. We had little horse riding experience so we had done first hour as a lesson and for the second hour we headed to the fields. It was a wonderful day and three people were out with us during the lesson, the instructor ( nice polish lady)... More

9 of us went on an hours trek through Killegar forest, and we were all totally buzzing after it. I cannot think of a better way to see the scenery. I have been on many treks and I thought these guys were brilliant, they gave the people who had never ridden in our group confidence and made the ride thoroughly... More

This was my first time riding a horse and I had a wonderful time here. All of the staff were friendly and helpful. I had great instruction for an hour, learning how to ride a horse, and felt confident afterwards. They have so many beautiful horses here - all shapes and sizes, I saw people of a variety of age...

My daughter is four and mad about horses. Over the course of a week in late October (half-term), she had two private lessons and spent a day at a horse camp. She was taught by Margaret who was a wonderful teacher. We are back in London now and Melina is still talking about her experience. I hope she will have... More

I'm an American who wanted a chance to go horseback riding during my time in Ireland. I booked a two-hour ride at Killegar through Wicklow day tours. It was a truly amazing experience. I took a one hour lesson followed by one hour trek. As an experienced rider I was afraid that my time in the ring would be boring,... More

From the moment I booked with the riding school through to jumping off the horse at the end of our visit we were made very welcome and safe in the hands of the... More

I used to ride at a fairly advanced level but hadn't been on a horse in a few years. However, I was given the opportunity to do some phenomenal riding while on a two-hr trek at Killegar. The guides divided us into groups based on riding ability, so the more advanced riders were able to jump and enjoy a hearty... More

I really enjoyed my experience here. I took a tour with Wicklow Day tours and I will say that the staff here is great!. they work with expert or no experience riders and adjust to meet your level of riding. The lesson/ ride lasts about 2 hours and provides a beautiful view of the Irish Country side. a great experience... More
