The beach was so serene and you could see a castle in the distance. We are not experienced horseback riders but they were very helpful... More

Booked a trek with my daughter (6yo). I had never been on a horse before. We were with a group trek of about 15 people, it was lovely. Trekked own a quite country lane and onto the beach. It was lovely, felt totally comfortable. The horses seemed to know exactly what to do and where to go. The people working... More

It could not have been better! We had the "Sunset" Appartment for one week and spent a lot of hours on horseback. There are horses and rides for every level. You can feel that the owners take good care of the horses, though it was quite busy during this week.

Visited here with a group of us a while ago. Enjoyed the session but felt a bit shortchanged I dont know maybe i was expecting a bit much. The guide was lovely though and beach was fab.

I just came back from a one week riding vacation with Island View Riding Stables. What can I say. The horses were great, very responsive and well taken care of. The beach rides were fantastic, the coastal scenery absolutely beautiful. I highly recommend Island View Riding Stables.

I took my three daughters for a 1 1/2 beach ride. Hayley and Jillian are good riders and wanted to canter. Casey has Down Syndrome and is comfortable walking. I thought they would need to split us up. Instead, we were taken in one group to start, and then Selena took the two off cantering down the beach while Alex... More

Scratch another item off my bucket list! My daughter and I travelled to Sligo with the sole purpose of galloping horses on the beach. The 4-hour island ride was all we hoped for and more. Our horses, Tom & Jerry, were docile yet eager to please. Sure-footed and cautious on the rocks, they were happy to race flat out down... More

We had a great afternoon riding on the beach in what is a lovely,family run business. Care was taken to make sure all abilities were catered for in what amounted to essentially private lessons for the two children in the group. Great value for money

My boyfriend and I went to Island View Riding stables for an afternoon out. We had beautiful weather and we were excited to take a beautiful ride by the beach. While the scenery was breathtaking, there were a few bumps along the way. However, be warned that prices are steep and there is a horse, named Molly, that you should... More
