Fantastic Day Out.
Aug 2021
I went riding with family last month and although I am very nervous around horses the ladies who work there put me totally at ease. From the moment we sat on the horses we were told what would happen and all through the walk we were told when to lean forward or lean back. The horses were happy and really well looked after and the ladies had such a strong bond with them. Walking through the woods and then looking out over Dublin was such an amazing experience. I am really looking forward to my next trip to Dublin when I definitely go there again and highly recommend it.

First time riding at the Paddocks, took a lovely horse trek up in Dublin mountains. Great staff and atmosphere - a super way to spend a morning or afternoon

Excellent experience
Aug 2021 • Family
Fantastic experience here yesterday, myself and husband and 11 year old son took a walk out experience and it was absolutely fantastic experience. My husband had Pluto one of the largest but friendly horses in the ground. Both myself and my son had 2 sister horses. We had no experience and this was taken on board and addressed throughout the experience to reassure us. Would recommend and will come back

Kids loving the beginning lessons, progressing nicely
Jul 2021
Had great experiences with two kids 6 and 8 doing group beginner lessons. Ms. 8 got scared in her first lesson after a fall and the teacher kept her behind at the end of the class and helped her get back on, walked around, spent a good 10 minutes just talking her through it, told her "You can be both brave and scared at the same time." They've just finished 10 lessons and are both happy and getting more confident on the horses.

Denise (manages the place) has been very responsive to questions, asks after how the kids are getting on, and was very helpful getting them fitted for boots and helmets we bought there. Highly recommended!

Wonderful rideout in the mountains
Jun 2021
I brought my eleven-year-old for a rideout in the mountains, and we both had a wonderful time. The staff are lovely, very experienced and great at showing novices the basics. The horses are very well trained (the eleven-year-old fell totally in love with Star), and the location is beautiful. We've been a few times before, and we'll be back as soon as possible.

Brilliant Kids Pony Camp
Jul 2021
Our six year old son went the second time to the pony camp at the Paddocks Riding Centre and absolutely loved it! Everyone at the riding centre is so friendly, welcoming and brilliant with kids. The whole camp is such an amazing experience and so well organised! They learn so much about how to care for horses next to the fun riding classes. All the ponies are really well trained and so well looked after. On top of all the location is so beautifully set in the mountains and one of the highlights is always a little ride out/walk into the forest. We just booked another week of pony camp this summer as our son had such a wonderful time! Can highly recommend! Thanks to Rachel and her fabulous team!

Amazing Stables
Jun 2021 • Solo
The paddocks is by far the best yard i’ve ridden at in dublin ! I started riding there a year ago after taking a break from riding and I have progressed so much. The horses and ponies are so fabulous and sweet and they are so well looked after.

The staff are are all extremely helpful and friendly. The instructors give you so much confidence and they have lots of lessons that cater for all ages and experience levels. You can also get half livery on a horse which is a great experience that lets you bond and progress with the horse !

I’d recommend the Paddocks for people of all ages as they have a wide variety of horses and amazing facilities. They also offer ride outs in the mountains that are extremely scenic and relaxing !
