Mountain View is a great place for riding and seeing the area. The staff are excellent and the horses are well kept. The journey was beautiful and 2 hours would be great. The 3 hour tour takes you additionally into the beautiful wooded area.

Our family of three went on a three hour ride thru the Burren today. We had a lovely, sunny day, and it wasn't too cold. I absolutely loved the scenery we saw, we were by the cliffs, saw the limestone rocks the Burren is so famous for, and passed lots of famine houses. Our guide, Mauren, a girl from Sweden,... More

Worth every minute. Brilliant centre with a horse for every rider. Our guide Molly was just fantastic & thank her enough. The views are breathtaking, but most of all it's the peace. Step out of the rat race & get on a horse. An experience you won't regret. Loved it ❤️

I grew up on the back of a horse so I wasn't really sure what to expect on my first 'trail ride'...and I was pleasantly surprised when it was everything but. We did the four hour ride through the mountains and ended up on the beach. The views...I can't even put into words! I highly recommend this place! Everything about... More

I have dreamed of horse back riding riding on the coast of Ireland since I was a teen. This experience surpassed my expectations! I booked the two hour beach ride for my husband and myself. My husband was supposed to join me on the ride. However, at the last minute he was unable to and Peter was very understanding about... More

I have had the privilege of going trail riding in several parts of the world and this is the best experience that I have had. A couple of things set it apart. One was the small group, we had one guide for every three people. Second was that Peter, the owner made sure to introduce himself to every one of... More

Peter and his guides are wonderful! My husband and I visited in early March 2017. The weather: cold and misty. However, riding the mountains of Ireland from horseback were on our bucket list. We are both experienced riders and were not looking for the typical "walk and follow" tour. Luckily the guide was more than happy to still take us... More

I was a solo traveler & active equestrian. I chose the 4 hr ride in Sept. Alex was my guide...she was so much fun to ride with & Peter (the owner) got us sandwiches for our trek.

When planning our trip to Ireland, my sister and I both agreed that a horse trek had to be on our itinerary. After doing some research, we came across Mountain View Horse Riding Centre.
