We had a very wonderful, scenic ride on the beach, and the staff were absolutely first rate! This may not be as fun for the experienced rider, but for a nice leisurely stroll on a beautiful stretch of beach, it can't be beaten. Great value for the money, and a very enjoyable, relaxing time!

My boyfriend and I had some time to kill and I suggested a 2 hour beach ride. I have ridden a little before and I love being around horses. It was well organised and we were made to feel welcome. Once paired with a horse we set off and the ride was enjoyable, the scenery was very nice although the... More

Thanks for taking the time for this review. We are one of very few riding stables where complete beginners and experienced rider can go on beach rides together and we send two or more guides to make sure everybody gets to go at a pace that is enjoyable and safe for them . We would split the ride for some... More

took a 1 hr beach ride, there were 4 of us of varying levels, they assessed our skill level & broke us up when we got to the beach to ensure everyone enjoyed the ride, got to go for a great canter on the beach, horses were perfect!! would definitely recommend :)

The linchpin of our family trip to Ireland was three days riding, as our girls love horseback riding and we love being around horses. Each day the girls came back from their 3 - 5 hour ride with huge smiles on their faces and "best day ever" descriptions. I took carriage driving lessons from Ursula and she is a wonderful... More

Back in May, where does the time go (?) a family friend and I decided short notice to go riding. Island View were instantly friendly and accommodating and slotted us in to a suitable morning ride. Our horses were well chosen, with spark, but completely controllable, and after signing up and saddling up we were off! Our leader Ursula was... More

I had the pleasure of enjoying an hour ride here 2 weeks ago... it was the most wonderful experience. I had not been on a horse in about 15 years and the staff here were exceptional in making everyone feel safe, and at ease. They were extremely helpful and friendly.

I wanted some quiet time outside the cities and longer rides. So, Atlantic Trailweek (5 days of riding) with Island View was the right thing for me. # Horses My horse Bobbles was very calm, strong and reliable. Oh! Those lovely Irish horses! They are going through the water, slippery stones and can run really, really fast on long, breath... More

We had a fantastic time with the crew at Island View. Ursula was attentive to our needs and definitely overrode my hyperambitious plans for a three hour ride for my family (we all happen to be beginners). She matched us with the perfect horses and sent us out for the perfect amount of time. The three ladies who accompanied us... More
