We had an excellent experience at the Riding Centre. They were able to easily accommodate and help our group of beginners. The guides were very outgoing and helpful as we went up the mountains and saw the stunning views. We would definitely go back.

It was a wonderful experience. We learned so much about the region (history, geology, geography) while taking in breathtaking views. We were beginner riders and the ride was perfect. It's the perfect way to experience the wilds of the Connemara countryside.
