Horseriding near Cork

We're a party of four (two children aged 7 & 9) visiting Cork for the first time this weekend for a birthday celebration. Does anyone have any good advice about attractions for the family but particularly horseriding. I'm looking for a family/novice trek but also for a more advanced trek or trail for myself.

Hop Island near Rochestown is popular for horseriding if you're staying in the city (it's close to the suburbs)or goireland.ie would be good for suggestions in the countryside.

I know that it is possible to go horseriding on Derrynane Beach in Co. Kerry, but obviously not a viable option if you're only visiting for the weekend - maybe worth considering for a future trip though!

You could also try looking on www.aire.ie, or www.ehi.ie, or equestrian.travel.ie. All of these sites have horseback riding facilities listed. If you don't mind a drive, the Clonshire Equestrian Centre in Adare might be a good place. www.clonshire.com

Yes, Hop Island, they must have a website.

It's only 30 min drive from city centre, on the Rochestown Road.
