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...

We booked this in advance to make sure we got in. It was a wonderful experience and a wonderful memory. Clara was our guide; she was very patient with my 20 yr old daughter who hadn't ridden in a few years. The horse they gave her was gentle and well-trained. I would have liked to have broken out into a... More

I can't say enough about how impressed I am with Island View. I am a fairly experienced rider while my boyfriend is a novice. 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.

Everyone in our group agreed this was the highlight of our trip to Ireland. We did a 2 hour beach and bog ride that started around 10:00am. It was like something out of a movie! The beach was so serene and you could see a castle in the distance. We are not experienced horseback riders but they were very helpful... More
