“My Daughters whole holiday!”

Bantry Pony Trekking
Certificate of Excellence

Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: We have a large selection of horses and ponies to suit all ages and abilities. Beginners are especially welcome and our carefully selected Irish Cobs are sure to give you a safe pleasant introduction to riding and the Irish countryside. Groups are kept small and are fully escorted and supervised at all times. The private trails are around the farm and up to the summit of Mullaghmesha, where, 580m above sea level, the views are breathtaking and cover a vast area of the West Cork coastline, (on a clear day, and barely your mounts ears in a good Celtic mist). Rides commence with an assessment form, then fitting with helmets, body protectors and riding boots, provided by us, before you meet your horse and head for the hills! - well maybe not quite so fast!

“My Daughters whole holiday!”
Reviewed June 12, 2012

We go to Bantry every year to see family, but my daughter's whole reason to go, is to ride every day at Bantry Pony Treking.
She has been riding for four years in the UK, but loves the hacks out at Bantry Pony Treking. This will be her third year visiting the stables. On her first visit she picked a horse called Star, which was well suited to her abilities, we later found out that Stars full name was Murphy's Star, can you guess our family name.
Cerys took her friend with her the second year, who had a fear of horses at the start of the holiday, but was hooked on horse riding by the end of the two weeks.
They are both with me this year again, and have only one thing on their minds.
I can only say how friendly, professional and relaxing the approach to riding is at the stable. The joy the riding brings to the girls is priceless, but the prices are half what I pay in the UK for leasons.

“The Wild Wild West Cork”
Reviewed June 14, 2010

Bantry Riding Centre is in the townland of Coomanore South in the mountains behind Bantry.
The Centre is at the end of a very very small and narrow road. We got there on a Saturday afternoon and were brought up the mountain on an hours trek.
The views are second to none.
