Had a fantastic trek with Cleggan beach riding Centre to Omey Island with lots of cantering on the beach. Had an amazing horse, I am experienced and loved the fact that the horse was alert and fun yet gentle. Lovely guide, a delightful trip altogether. Owner also did a quick assessment of my ability before we took off and made sure I was aware of the safety aspect of the trek.

Some of the horses were really tired and did not have the energy to canter or trot properly. It left the impression that the horses are working too much. Also the stables and pasture seemed quite small. Also I think that on a ride like this, the more experiences riders and first-timer could be separated to two different group for the whole duration of the trip, not only for cantering. I would have liked to trot more, but some people did not know even know how to sit on the horse, so the pace was quite slow. Even on the beach we were told to stay in line, not to pass each other, which was really frustrating. All this said, riding on the beach was awesome! Some amazing scenery also on the way. I think a ride like this is perfect for newbies, but if you have a bit more experience, book a private tour.

My 2 daughters rode with Cleggan during our visit in June. It was an EXCELLENT ride to Omey Island. My husband & I met them at the beach and were able to take pictures. The guides were great! Highly recommend them if you are interested in riding in Ireland!

One of the most delightful three hours I have spent in my life was the trek to Omey Island. Staff were knowledgeable and efficient, getting us into well-fitting boots and hats, matching us skillfully to horses based on experience, and assessing our riding abilities. The trek out to the beach was through gorgeous countryside with lovely views; the canter (or trot) on the huge beach was simply heaven. I loved my horse and wanted to take him home with me.

This tour was phenomenal. I went by myself because my friend wasn’t a fan of horses. Although I had only been on a horse a tiny handful of times, and never in an English saddle, Ellie was very patient with me and my horse, Jessie, was great. I learned roughly how to trot, and got to see a lot of the Irish countryside. If you’re not used to horseback riding only book the short tour.
