We did the Gleniff Horseshoe with Ursula and Rocco and Toddy. Great ride. Nice pace with plenty of trots and canters. Great horses. Beautiful landscape. Cracking mythology and blarney. Nice basic packed lunch. What's not to like. Recommended if you're after a horse ride.

We went for a 1 hour beach trek with Island View Riding Stables in early August - and it was the activity that made our holiday! We were novices - myself, my husband and my four year old had never been on a horse - and my 9 year old had ridden a little - but it really didn't matter.... More

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

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
