  • Really friendly stuff! Also they’re looking over their horses really good. Did the one hour tour-was okay. Try to find a time where the groups are not too big!
  • Went for a short trek around the National park. Weather was beautiful, the setting amazing. Couldn't ask for more
  • Great experience, very professional, if you are a first time rider, they are excellent on showing you how to ride a horse and keep close instruction during your tour, so you never feel alone. They have a lot of knowledge on the history of Killarney, great conversationalist. I was nervous when I got there but soon, I felt at home with such positive energy, and instruction. I highly recommend.
  • Great riding stable in Killarney. The staff are knowledgeable and helpful. Our group had riders of a wide range of experience, from little to a lot and everybody had fun. The horses are well cared for.
  • So much fun! Ian was great. Very laid back and good fun and gave us a guided tour along the way. Beautiful trail and Harry and Peter are the loveliest horsies! Took us out at a moment's notice too. Really nice people.
