  • We went on a 2 hour private ride out and it was GORGEOUS! We rode through this little forest area and came out on top of Dublin Mountain and you could see the entire city and bay. Definitely the best way to get a great view of the city. We then spent most the rest of the ride out on various points of the mountain and everything was so green and so beautiful. It was my first time riding a horse and i really loved it. I got to ride Pluto, and while he was a bit sassy at times, he was still very fun and easy to ride. He made the experience even better for me. Would highly recommend to tourists or locals. Would definitely come back if I could!
  • This experience was absolutely incredible. We had beginner to advanced riders and the staff and horses were great and everyone was very accommodating. The views were stunning as well. We did an hour ride out and saw everything from the lush green Irish countryside to the beautiful forests. We also had incredible views of Dublin as we rode along. The owner was the sweetest and was very aware of the safety of the riders which was so great. If you have time and are looking for something outside the city this is great!!
  • Always have a lovely time at the paddocks. Horses are well cared for and have great personalities. Staff is always friendly and helpful and the lessons are given by very professional instructors. When you go on a ride out you're in for a treat! Beautiful sceneries and views! Definitely recommend.
  • we had an absolutely amazing time. this was an experience of a lifetime! the staff is so friendly, but also very competent! the horses were lovely and so friendly and very well experienced. if you like ride-outs in a magnificent landscape with fantastic view on the City of Dublin, then this is just the place to go. we're definitely coming back!!!
  • I give this place the HIGHEST recommendation. My husband and I came to Dublin on holiday, and since it has always been on my bucket list to horseback ride in Ireland, we decided to give this place a try. It's on the outer edge of Dublin by the mountain, and was easy to get to by taxi (other public transit may be a bit harder). I used to ride horses a lot, but haven't recently, and my husband has never ridden a horse. We did the 2 hour private ride out on the mountain and it was perfect and fun! Easily enjoyable for any level of rider, including my husband. The staff was fantastic and friendly. They matched us with great horses, and we had an amazing ride. This was an unforgettable experience, and the perfect addition to our experience in Ireland. You get the absolute best views, while doing a really fun activity with beautiful horses.
