My wife and I booked a beach ride and neither of us was disappointed. My wife is experienced and I am a novice with horses. Island view were able to supply suitable horses, experienced guides and divide the group in such a way that those who were more advanced could gallop off across the beach. I was quite happy to...

I would have liked to have broken out into a... More

The horses were well suited to their jobs and well chosen for their riders. Tack was clean and well fitted, and the horses were all in good health. The guides were knowledgeable and looking out for... More

My husband and I are keen riders, we were in Sligo for a wedding so didn't take riding gear with us. We wanted to have a look at Island View to see if it was worth coming back at a later date for a holiday. Our opinion was it is well worth a trip back! We turned up with no... More

I stay for one week in a beautiful and cosy B&B. On the farm is a lot of animals and very friendly horses. At most I like the beach rides on lonely beaches and see amazing cliffs from horseback. Thank you Nina Kristin (from Germany)

Just a lovely ride along the beach. Were accompanied by 2 staff members, didn't catch they're names but both were really friendly. Great value for money and really professional.
