Best experience in Ireland
, Jul 2022
We both had a blast, one of the best things we did while in Ireland. Emma was our guide and she was fantastic. It was so beautiful. We did the 2 hour tour as total beginners, and we did feel a little sore, but it is definitely doable if you are down for a bit of adventure. The trotting was so fun! The staff really made the entire experience enjoyable, and are so friendly.
Great family fun
, Jul 2022
The scenery and information from the staff was great. My family and I really had an amazing experience there.
Fun activity for an outdoorsy person. I would do it again!
, May 2022
This activity is exactly what we needed. It was a fun and amazing experience. They supply boots and hats and give a brief tutorial on handling the horses; which were already saddled. The guides were young and very professional. The horses were beautiful, friendly and pleasant. The weather was warm and partly sunny. The cascading mountains and the view from the hilltop is serene. It was a great experience!
A Rewarding Experience

The weather was beautiful, the horses were so well trained and the staff were so friendly and fantastic
Great ride, but no service
, Aug 2021
Absolutely amazing horseback ride around the national park. We came across Deer, Reindeer, Kerry Cows & incredible natural beauty. What suffers though is the lack of customer service from the staff. We arrived & were just told to grab a helmet, then next thing we know we're getting on a horse & off we go. There was no briefing, no instructions & then worst of all when we came back we were off our horse within seconds & that was that. No opportunity for a quick photo, no goodbye, no thank you. It just a weird feeling as the ride was amazing but the service was lacking. All in all I'd still recommend it of course, just be prepared to not get much instruction.

Amazing time!
, Jul 2021
Amazing tour with Tamara! The stables are fantastic, and they tailored our speed & horses to our skill level which made for a much more enjoyable time. The route is lovely going through the national park, with deer spotting along the way. Helmets & boots were provided, and the horses were saddled for us upon arrival. The staff/team was super nice and helpful. Highly recommend heading here for any skill level!
