“Dream vacation come true”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

The owners and staff are so nice and knowledgeable not only about their horses but the area where we rode as well including the lifestyles of the people that live there. First they suited and matched us up perfectly to our horses. They made sure all of our specific needs were met (vegetarian) and that we had all the necessary equipment. We were shuttled to and from out B&B every day and found our horses well rested and tacked up to go. The owners made sure we had a fresh lunch every day with sandwiches,desserts, drinks and adult courage (Irish Scotch Whiskey) every day. We had Emma and Leena (the most fabulous guides ever) as our guides for the entire week. They were eager to answer and and all questions and keep a close eye on us for our safety. Cantering on the beach in the ocean was a thrill I will never forget. Trekking through the lowlands and bogs, up through the mountain sides have left memories ingrained in my head that will last a lifetime. I will be back to ride with them as soon as I possibly can.

“A Place of Learning and Tranquility”
Reviewed May 6, 2013

Well worth the cost of the boat ride. A place you can sit back and enjoy some peace and quiet. Before going, get the history from Ross castle or your boatman.

“lovely horses”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

I went for an hour long ponk trek through Killarney National Park on Sunday morning
the horses were all looked after and the staff were friiendly and helpful. The pace of the trek was steady and the horses were easy to ride. The cost of the trek was reasonable also 35 euro for an hour.

“Nice staff, great horses, beautiful views”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

We just finished an hour ride. Our horses were very calm, sweet, and had lovely personalities. The views were amazing and the staff adjusts to trotting, cantering etc. based on your experience and comfort level. The owner even picked us up, and then dropped us off. We saw great views of the park and even some red deer who stayed to watch us! I highly recommend this company, you will have an excellent time.

“Very professional.”
Reviewed December 3, 2012

We had a wonderful trip through the national park. Fantastic fun with professional minders. We just did one hour on horseback but the experience was fantastic. Would highly recommend this to anyone who wants to experience horseriding.
