“Great experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2014

Thank you so much Wolftrek for a great ride and allowing my mum and I to see Ireland from horseback. Everyone was so friendly and helpful, especially for my mum, who hasn't had any experience with horse riding. We had a lovely, relaxing ride and learned a lot. I definitely recommend Wolftrek to anyone who wants to view the Irish countryside from horseback!

“Excellent way to spend a couple of hours”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2014

A friend and I went on the Wolftrek horse riding experience in July 2013.. It was a beautiful way to spend a couple of hours in a tranquil setting with beautiful scenery. Ronan was our guide and made the experience very informative and fun with his knowledge of the History of the Irish Horse. I would highly recommend the Wolftrek Horse Riding Experience to anyone visiting the Blessington area...

“Above and Beyond”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013

Ronan has got to be one of the nicest people in the world. My girlfriend and I read about Wolftrek online and thought we would check it out while visiting Dublin. The place is an hours bus ride away from the Temple Bar area, no transfers required. Thing was, she and I only realized that we had forgotten to check what stop to get off at once we were 30 minutes out of town, so we were completely lost! We ended up getting off only a stop or two early, walking to a local corner store, and calling Wolftrek. Despite the fact that we were now 30-45 minutes late, Ronan drove out to pick us up and stayed late, not rushing or skipping any part of the ride.

They do a great job assessing your riding skill level and catering to it - my girlfriend is very experienced and I am very unexperienced. Both of us felt comfortable with the setup. Once we were actually riding, Ronan has a lot of fun historical setups and information, although the view of the countryside was more than sufficient to wow us. Also, the ride wasn't especially long, so we still had plenty of energy and time for other activities.

OK, this review is getting long... We highly recommend Wolftrek! You won't be disappointed.

“Great way to see Wicklow and learn about Ireland's History”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

We had a great time with Wolftrek...we arrived and was warmly greeted to the stables by Ronan and Louise. We were quickly kitted up and put on our trusty steed for the day and shown the ropes of horse handling (which for a first time of riding a horse, was done very clearly so I had full confidence in keeping control of the horse) and then began our trek up the Wicklow hill side stopping for insights into Irish history involving the horse. From the Norman invasion of Ireland, to farming and agriculture, It was a great summation of the History of Ireland and also gave us some useful facts such as why we drive on the left! Thanks Ronan for sharing all that knowledge with us! Thanks also to Helen for helping to keep the horses from eating half of the countryside! All the best and thanks again from Josh, Richard, Hannah and Abi!

“A great experience with family and friends.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013 via mobile

Great family day out today at Wolftrek on our mini trek, we were very well catered for by Ronan and Louise, and Louise got the job entertaining our 5 year old son who had a great day horse back riding. This is a great way to relax for an hour or two and listen to great stories. Thanks Ronan an Louise, from James an co.......
