We specialise in outdoor activities that range from archery and mountain biking to horse drawn carriage rides and many other things besides. We have something to suit everyone. Ashford Outdoors has been offering activity and equestrian experiences in the West of Ireland for over 25 years. Our facilities include an archery range, Ireland's tallest tree climb as well as a large indoor arena. We are open to the general public and offer outdoor adventure and equestrian activities to holiday makers and groups 7 days a week. We provide corporate team building and bonding days as well as catering for youths and sports teams. We can also accommodate Hen and Stag parties and we offer bespoke activity packages for relaxation before or on the morning of your wedding day or special occasion! Our activities include archery, clay pigeon shooting, biking and mountain biking, tree climbing and abseiling, kayaking and guided archaeological and ecological tours. Our location is on the Ashford Castle Estate, next to the island village of Cong on the Galway/Mayo border in Western Ireland.

“Fun at the Equestrian Centre”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

We really had fun riding, doing archery, and skeet shooting.
"Mr. Tim" was very kind and patient with our large group. The young boys with us have found some new sports they love. Thank you.

We had a lovely ride around the grounds of Ashford, for one of us it was our first experience on a horse and the staff were extremely professional and ensured we were both comfortable and enjoyed the ride!

“lovely stay”
Reviewed August 3, 2012

i loved the boat trip round the corrib lakes it took about 2 hours and we where entertained with music ans songs on the trip. we also stopped on one of the islands to visit the church that saint patrick built when he came to ireland and there is horse riding and clay shooting and archery. the only problem was the price for these things as it was very steep. i would like to have done it all but did not have the funds
