Cooper's Hill Equine offer horse riding just 1.5 miles from Galway city centre. We can organise horse riding tours to the Burren, to a Haunted Castle, or you can go cross country jumping in Connemara. You can ride to a local beach from our barn and straight into the Atlantic Ocean. We cater for all riders, first timers and the more experienced thrill seekers. Hunting holidays are organised from August to March with our local packs, plus we prepare riders for hunting in Ireland by organising hunt clinics.

We had an amazing ride with James through the Burren. The horses were good natured. As a person who hasn't rode a horse in some time, James tailored the experience perfectly. The views were incredible and a perfect end to our Ireland vacation.
