We called at 9am to check if there was availability on the 10am beach ride and were delighted that there was! It ended up being just the two of us, the instructor Roisin and one other riding school regulars on the ride. It was absolutely breath-taking, and because it was just the two of us, Roisin worked to our level... More

Always wanted to do a beach ride. Here was my chance. I came over from Coventry for a family celebration, but temptation was too much. Booked online, tried to pay deposit online which wasn't working at the time. They offered to send a PayPal request, but I was unable to access the wi-fi. Still rang on Sat morning and we... More

The staff at Donegal EC are some of the friendliest people I've ever met. They know so much about the local area it's like a history lesson and guided tour all rolled into one. The horses are well mannered and well cared for. Would recommend to riders of all abilities.

After a quick call to the center to make sure that there was availability on a perfectly sunny day in high season, we found ourselves led by Maurice, who was entertaining, fun and kind. My ten year old daughter, who had been spooked and hadn't ridden in over two years, was coaxed onto the horse and easily regained her confidence... More

We paid for a day's horseriding which turned out to be very good value for money. The day begins at 10am and finishes at 4pm. We got taken for a pub lunch as well (included in the price you pay for the day package). We are both total beginners at horseriding but after a short lesson in the arena, we... More

My family and I decided very last minute to see if we could do the beach ride offered. Most of us had only rode a horse once or twice so no experience. They gave each of us appropriate horses for our level and our guide Maurice was great. He has a great personality and what I expect for most people... More

I booked a ride for my wife's birthday the morning for later the same day. The staff asked what she wanted to do and what was her level. She has done a magic ride on the beach with walk, trot and canter. She told me she felt the horse was nearly free and really reacted to her orders, unlike at... More

Despite barely being able to move my muscles today, my one hour beach ride yesterday with Donegal Equestrian Centre was fantastic. I was given a lovely, energetic mount and went out with a really friendly and competent instructor called Fiona. The whole centre seems to be really well run and the horses are well looked after. This was 30 euro... More

Wonderful Staff, calm friendly horses. The trail across the sand dunes was breathtaking. More experienced riders can use the beach.
