I had such a lovely time riding the countryside here. If you want a unique way to be outdoors and see the scenery, this is an excellent option. The horses were all extremely well cared for and well behaved. They take into account your riding experience too if you want to do a bit more.

My wife and I had a brilliant day at Castlefergus Equestrian as part of our honeymoon down the west coast of Ireland.

I had never ridden before but was immediately set at ease with my horse Barney, who got me around safely despite trying to eat any vegetation he came across! My wife also enjoyed her horse, Magpie, who was a bit smaller.

Sarah and her family set a nice pace throughout, and there are nice touches around the forest section such as fairy houses. Very highly recommended.

We had a lovely afternoon on a family of 4 trek accompanied by Alan and Morgan. Absolute gentlemen who guided us around. The trek is really lovely through fairy trail and up through fields along stream. Our son and daughter loved the afternoon and were completely in love with their horses. An afternoon we would highly recommend to any family. Great day out and continued success to castlefergus equestrian.

We absolutely loved our first trek at Castlefergus … so much so we booked in a second one straight away! Definitely the friendliest, warmest, most welcoming and professional stables we have visited. My two daughters are just starting out and I am returning after a long break from riding - Sarah, her family and her team skilfully pace the trek so different levels of experience are catered for. My daughters were made to feel safe and confident walking while lead on their lovely ponies and I was encouraged to jog my memory and take a trot and canter.
All of the wonderful reviews are absolutely deserved and I’m only sorry that we will only be able to come back when home from London visiting our family in Limerick… if we lived closer we would definitely be regular visitors!
Thanks Sarah, family and team (and the beautiful horses of course) for two wonderful treks this summer! We’ll definitely be back!

Amazing experience, couldn't recommend this enough. The owners are incredibly friendly and very reassuring for a first timer. Alan you're a star.

I used to take riding lessons at Castlefergus with my sisters as a teenager, and was so happy to return with my husband and daughters when on holiday in Ireland. We received such a warm welcome from Adia, Morgan and their now grown up children. The stables have expanded over the years with a fabulous new arena and a special experience for children with a magical fairy trail in the woods. This is a wonderful way to spend some time in the Clare area with genuine people who have a real love of nature and their horses.

Had such a wonderful afternoon riding horses with Alan and Sarah today! The horses are so well looked after and gentle. We were all first time riders and everything was explained so well and we felt safe and well looked after the whole time. A definite must do if you are in the area.
