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

It was a Tuesday afternoon and although they did not actually open until Wednesday, the owner made arrangements and brought the horses in and called in one of the guides to assist us! I truly appreciated him helping us out (we were leaving... More

Visited with our host Carolyn and friends and was welcomed to the business. Although I didn't ride my friends loved it! The little exhibition was fantastic! Value for money and a loving smile. Would highly recommend

I rode an Irish Cob (aka Gypsy vanner to those familiar with the breed) named Blackie. My 90 min hack was led by... More

Went 10th June, really helpful and friendly staff! Extremely well trained horses, coming from a guy who has a slight fear of horses! Brilliant views. 10/10 could not recommend enough, definitely going back again!

We went to the Sheans Horse Farm as part of a CIE Tour. We were there to hear about the history of the land and the people who lived there. We had a fantastic time listening to the history while we ate the best scones ever. We walked up the hill and had a great view of the countryside. We... More
