Even if you don't ride come ride here

Excellent trekking. Liz lead our ride, she was chatty and knowledgeable on our 1-hour beach ride. The scenery is amazing and the horses great for our group of two adults and 3 teens who aren't riders! One of our group didn't want to trot -- no problem, another staffer took her a different way and fun was had by all! In addition we were late having gone to the wrong stable. Kitty couldn't have been more kind when we called and knew we were holding up the tour.

What an amazing experience
Aug 2021 • Couples
We had a wonderful time at Carrowholly Stables. On our arrival we were greeted by the lovely Kitty who explained what our day would entail.

The staff were amazing and made us feel so at ease, Liz, Graham and all the staff really know their stuff when it comes to the horses

The whole experience was excellent from start to finish. We would highly recommend Carrowholly Stables, and we'll definitely be back again 😀

Thanks guys

This is our second time visiting these stable with our two teenage children. We did a 1-hour beach ride. A fantastic experience along quiet country roads and into the sea water. Very friendly, attentive staff. Suitable for all abilities. I would highly recommend this!

Wonderful experience
Aug 2021 • Friends
Really enjoyable experience. My brother and I were beginners with no prior riding experience and we were expertly looked after by super friendly staff. The very windy weather meant we couldn't go to the shore but instead we took a beautiful route through the countryside, which was equally stunning.

Big thanks to all the staff, in particular Alexandra who selected a suitable horse ("Big Mick") for me (I'm 6 ft 3) and took the time to help us get acquainted with the horses, gave us riding tips along the trek, and afterwards even taught us about the different breeds and the horses personalities. Thanks also to Helena for leading the trek and the very enjoyable conversation and local tips along the way.

We look forward to coming back next summer and hopefully taking the beach route next time :)

From the get go the staff were incredible. So helpful. Explained everything to me who was clearly a little nervous having been last on a horse when i was a child.
We strolled to a beautiful little beach and even managed to trot a few times.
Loved every bit of it with my lovely horse ‘Honey’.

Really enjoyable and interesting trek to a nearby beach, felt very safe with friendly guides. Most of our group were first timers and would definitely do it again.

Fun family experience in beautiful surroundings
Jul 2021 • Family
Visited here with family (13 & 11 year old) for the beach trek. We are all novice riders and the team were excellent in teaching us what to do, lead by Helena. Big thanks to Liz who helped me with my nerves too! The trek itself is beautiful, through country roads and out onto the beach with amazing scenery. Highlight for the kids was the horses going into the water . Highly recommend for a fun family experience.

My husband, our 10 year old son, and I booked a one hour beach trek with Carrowholly Stables. The staff were fantastic, (especially Graeme our lead) so friendly and helpful. The horses were beautiful, calm and ideal for beginners. The route we took was really scenic, Croagh Patrick in the background, and seals on the shore. Our son loved riding through the water. I would highly recommend Carrowholly Stables
