My friend and I did the 2 hour beach and bog ride. Highly recommended! Our guide, Auriel, was extremely well-informed about the local history and imparted that knowledge throughout the ride. Great guide, lovely horses, and beautiful countryside. What more could you ask for?

Auriel from SeaTrails arranged a horseback tour for me on the beach north of Sligo - ocean waves crashing on rocks, stunning scenery. Nothing better than seeing it from the back of a horse! Having the weather cooperate in October was a plus. She also...More
