I guess we would have enjoyed this more if the weather were a bit clearer, but the owner seemed adamant about giving us the tour regardless, even though most of us were ready to move to our next destination. The neighbor fellow who joined us was delightful - as were the tea and scones. Could have left it at that.... More

A delightful visit with the family on the Sheans Horse Farm. A long-time neighbor was there to visit and add a little color. I asked if my Scot-Irish name was still about in N. Ireland and he assured me that it is. Although I didn't cut turf, I observed it and got the smell of it burning. The scones were... More

We love coming to Sheans. We have been on treks with friends as well as the family and attended the Christmas experience. Sheans put 100% into everything they do and it really shows, fantastic hosts, great staff, beautiful horses, breathtaking views and a really memorable experience. We've been before and we will definitely continue to come back- an unmissable experience... More

From the homemade scones, to the history lesson, the beautiful landscape & horse back riding, this was truly a highlight experience of our vacation. Danny & Mary couldnt have been better hosts. We had booked an hour excursion and ended up staying for 2 1/2. We were a family of 6 adults and 5 kids - ages ranged from 4... More

My wife, 13 yr old daughter and I were visiting Ireland and I surprised my daughter with a 2.5 hour horseback ride...which is one of her favorite activities. We were not disappointed with Sheans Horse Farm...from Danny's quick email responses to my inquires to Maggie's excellent guiding. Maggie was such a pleasure to ride with...she made certain that everyone was... More
