The magical charm of the Emerald Isle makes Ireland an ideal destination for horse riding. Few countries revere the horse as much as the Irish and horse riding is deeply woven into our culture. The rural countryside with stone walls, green fields and rolling hills is very pleasant to explore with a good horse.

There are miles and miles of open beach which are ideal for a gallop. And of course there is the magnificent Killarney National Park with trails going through the park alongside Lough Lein, (the largest of the three lakes in Killarney) taking in views of Ross Castle and Ross Island, panoramic views of Innisfallen Island. The Kenmare Estate and the majestic mountains surrounding Killarney will all be appreciated.
