  • Every time I have the pleasure of staying at Tipperary Mountain Trekking Centre proves to be an absolute delight, Clare and Lily make for excellent hosts, the horse-related experience is second to none as master horsemanship is on display. The setting is truly idyllic, one can expect magnificently well-conserved countryside, flora, fauna and views to take one's breath away. I would highly recommend anyone who has a passion for horse-riding and nature in all its glory and grandeur, to take the time to visit Tipperary Mountain Trekking Centre.
  • My mother and I have spent 18 years building our business taking people through the beautiful unspoiled landscape here at Tipperary Mountain Trekking Centre. We pride ourselves on our love of horses, their welfare and on giving people the best experience possible in this truly unique setting. Having worked in different centres in different countries I can honestly say that until you have seen the beauty that is here you have not experienced Ireland. We do not ride through forestry or on gravel paths, we can wander through fields admiring wild orchids, rare birds and wildlife on horses that are our family. Ultimately the choice is yours, but if you want to experience something beautiful that has been built by just myself and my mother based on and love a passion for horses and the land we ride over, then Tipperary Mountain Trekking Centre would love to welcome you.
  • This is the most friendly and relaxing place I have ever experienced. The horses are all so chilled out. As soon as I stepped into the yard i could feel the calm. Then, when we had all been given a quick safety speech and a lesson on how to tack up your horse together with a short equine anatomy lesson, we were racked up and ready to move. The best was yet to come. We had a quick warm up in the training arena before slowly making our way toward the beautiful, green mountains of Tipperary. I can not describe how it felt going up the mountains on horseback or the magical scenery from the mountain peaks and breathing in the fresh air. I have been riding horses most of my life, but I never experienced the Tipperary Mounting Treking Centre before. I will definitely be going more often. Thank you Clare and Lily so much xx
  • I am so lucky to have started horse riding in Tipperary Mountain trekking centre. The treks have amazing views and good history to go with different areas. Lily and Clare are great and I have learned so much about horses. They show you how to hold the reins before treks if your a beginner! off the horse and some things you need to do which is great help I would recommend this places so much it's an amazing experience through the countryside and lots of fun!!❤️
  • I love this place! The people, the animals, and the serenity of the surroundings. Clare and Lily's riding establishment/bed and breakfast is always the highlight of my trip to Ireland. I am about to return for the 4th time in 7 years. Each time, I bring new friends to experience this gorgeous and unforgettable setting, and we always make a point to be there on a Thursday in order to take in Jim o' the Mills famous pub, hidden in the countryside. You don't have to have any riding experience to trek the legendary Tipperary hills, but you should have a sense of adventure and a love of nature. This is not your typical B&B, so if you are looking to be pampered in posh surroundings, look somewhere else. But if you are wanting to experience the "real" Ireland and meet amazing, like-minded people, you are in for a treat!
