This was a beautiful and inspiring way to see County Wicklow and the Wicklow Mountains. The horse riding was really enjoyable, taking us through the woods on trails both up and down hills. Lunch was delicious and scenic, and the stop at Glendalough was a welcome end to a majestic day. Our guide was knowledgeable and funny and the trip was well worth the time and money.

Wonderful Wicklow

We had a really lovely day out, despite the rain and Gillian and Terry were really informative and provided a great tour of the Wicklow Mountains. The horse riding was great and the stable staff lovely. The only thing was the stables said under 10s couldn’t do the forest walk, but they were quick to offer an alternative Pony Club riding lesson for my youngest which worked out well and he loved the experience. Thank You for a fabulous day!

Johnny was a fabulous tour guide, we had a terrific day!! My 13 year old loved the horse riding (an absolute beginner). Even the poor weather didn’t spoil our day out.

Don’t go horse riding, but do the guided tour

We indeed went horse riding but its nothing like the pictures, you are not going through the fields and hills. You are just riding around in a little forest. If you are somewhat experienced you do some galloping but just in cirkels in the little forest. The tour you do after the horse riding is great. The tour guide tells amazing story’s and that really made the trip. So don’t spent your money on the horse riding but I would recommend the tour with the guide.

Incredible experience! Loved the horses, all very well treated, the scenery is amazing and the overall day plan is great! Loved the food that we were able to get, loved the fact that the horses riding actually goes out of the beaten track. Our tour guide Johnny is great and very punctual. Very interesting information and very well managed overall. Book it, you won't regret it.

Great Day Out

An excellent adventure. The horseback riding was fantastic. They took such good care to make sure that we were well matched with an appropriate level of horse and comfortable with riding (for those of us who were novices). The Wicklow Mountains and area are beautiful and well worth spending time. Loved Glendalough too. Our driver Matt was great, ensuring an on time schedule and a safe drive. Highly recommend

Horseback Riding and Glendalough tour

The horseback riding was wonderful. We are not experienced riders and they made sure we were comfortable before starting as well as during the ride. The ride itself was fun. I might suggest bringing a change of clothes. The weather can change quickly and the ride is at the beginning of the tour. Don't let rain deter you. It's still a very worthwhile experience. The drive afterward was beautiful and the guide was very knowledgeable and friendly.
