“Amazing Experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

We had a great time at Drummindoo, experiencing the beautiful scenery of County Mayo on horseback. The staff is very knowledgable and helpful in making sure that you are comfortable riding a horse. Can't wait to go back!

“Ideal way to enjoy the Irish countryside”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

You won't find more beautiful scenery in Ireland than in gorgeous County Mayo and there isn't a better way to enjoy it than on horseback. We spent an afternoon riding as part of our vacation in the Westport area and enjoyed it thoroughly. As another reviewer noted, one of the most wonderful parts of a ride at Drumindoo is seeing such beautiful, happy, healthy and well-cared for horses. Everyone in our group were beginners and we had lots of support from the staff at Drumindoo in being matched with quiet horses and taught to "steer" them. From the terrific location near downtown Westport to the friendliness and professionalism of the staff, we had a wonderful experience at Drumindoo. Some time I hope to do one of their beach rides!

“Pony camp -fabulous!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

My children attended the week long pony camp with Drummindoo Stud .They loved it!
They have no riding experience and they are young , ages 6, 6 and 4 but the staff were extremely
warm , welcoming and safety conscious .My kids loved their ponies and got to know them well over the week's instruction, 3 hours a day .The children had adult with them whenever they were on their pony, as they learned the riding basics and even managed a slow trot.
We will have great memories from this holiday thanks to Padraic and his family , and staff.

“The Drummindoo Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

I have taken a school party of 35 pupils to Drumindoo for the last 9yrs and the pupils have always thoroughly enjoyed it. Padraic and his team have been a delight to work with making the pupils feel at easy, which has been fantastic as many of them have not ridden before. We are already planning and looking forward to our next trip !
