If you love horse riding on some of Ireland's, and indeed the World's, finest beaches then this is the place to do it. My girls have been doing it here for years and when they are in Dunfanaghy it is a must and a highlight. The horses are very well looked after, and the staff who work at the stables,... More

My 'milestone birthday' celebration trip was my most enjoyable and memorable holiday ever and in fact far exceeded my expectations. The horses were well trained, well mannered and sure footed. The staff were friendly, warm and professional and every day of horse riding was well planned and a... More

I visited the stables in the summer and did the one hour beach ride. I have previous riding experience but I am extremely nervous due to past experiences. My horse voodoo was an absolute gentleman and I was guided around the beach by a fantastic young man named Chris. At first I was nervous but Chris had me laughing from... More

I am a 52 year old adult with little formal training, but enough experience to stay on a horse and enjoy a good trot and canter. The best ride of my life was on a beach in West Iceland. At The Dunfanaghy Stables, I was able to relive it. I immediately booked a second two hour ride and after an... More

Turned up at the stables without a booking around 11am on the August bank holiday Monday. They could fit us in at 4.15 - the last outing of the day. So we decided to spend the day in Dunfanaghy as our kids really wanted to go horse riding. We had one of the best days of our holiday! The weather... More
