Dingle Adventure Riding:

 

One Hour Trek Itinerary


Horse Riding in IrelandThis trek takes riders up into the hills overlooking the beautiful Dingle Peninsula. You leave the Stables and follow an old country road through lush Irish farmland to a small hillside path that leads you up into the hills. At the top, there is a chance for more experienced riders to quicken the pace with a canter along the ridge while less experienced riders can enjoy the scenery and take advantage of an unmissable photo opportunity. The view is magnificent--behind you, the Brandon Mountain Range, in front of you a patchwork of green fields and the sea beyond. From here you head back to the Stables by a hillside path overlooking the town of Dingle and the busy harbour beyond.
This is a one hour long trek which departs daily at 11:00 & 2:30.

Two Hour Trek Itinerary


This trek sets out from the Stables and follows much the same path as the one-hour trek, but at a faster pace. You then head down through town and out around the Harbour where you have a good chance of seeing Fungi,, the Dingle dolphin. Down on the beach, in the shadow of ancient ruins, you can go for an exhilarating gallop along the shore before cooling off in the sea. You then make your return to the Stables via Main Street, passing pubs and restaurants that you might want to visit after your trek!
This is a two hour long trek which departs daily at 11:00

Half Day Trek Itinerary

 

This trek takes you to the most westerly landfall in Europe. You leave the stables and cut across the Dingle Peninsula in the shadow of Mount Brandon. Your destination is the beautiful beach in Muireach, nestled in a cove protected from the roaring Atlantic by the famous peaks of the Three Sisters. Once on the beach, you can gallop along shore or bring your horse wading in the sea. Have a camera ready because this beach is one of the most picturesque beaches in Ireland and pictures taken here will be a memory for a life time!
This is a three to four hour trek which departs at 10:00 each morning with a minimum of two riders.

Full Day Trek Itinerary

 

Horse Riding in Kerry IrelandThis trek leaves the stables and follows the Harbour coast overlooking Lord Ventry's Estate (the setting for some of the film Ryan's Daughter) before turning inland to make your way to the sleepy village of Ventry. Once there, you head out onto the beach for a gallop, which will earn you a well deserved break for lunch in Páidi O'Sé's Pub. After lunch you set out to make your way up Mount Eagle. The going can be difficult, but it will be worth it when you get to the top and see the breathtaking view of Dunquin with the famous Great Blasket Island and The Sleeping Giant beyond. From here you turn and head home, making your way through lush farmland full of fields dotted with ancient ruins.

Killarney Reeks/Ring of Kerry Trail:

 

6 nights Bed and Breakfast Accommodation and 5 days Horse Riding


Horse riding Kerry IrishWhy not explore the highlands of Kerry with us, taking in the majestic MacGillycuddy Reeks, Ireland's highest mountain range. Our trail ride covers a variety of terrain -  country lanes, forests, mountain tracks, bogs and some of the beaches at Waterville and on the magnificent 6.4km (4 miles) stretch of golden sand at Rossbeigh. The Iveragh Peninsula stretches south-west from Killarney and has many places of historic and archaeological interest along the world renowned Ring of Kerry. The Trail Ride Package includes accommodation in Killarney, Glenbeigh and Waterville, luggage transfer to each accommodation, lunch each day, horse, tack and guide. The trail is led at all times by an experienced guide(s) and we take special care of nervous riders.

 

Our trail operates from May to October with arrival for the 6 night / 5 day trail on Saturday and departure Friday.  If you are participating on the 3 night / 2 day trial ride arrival is also on Saturday but departure is then on Tuesday.   On Sunday morning with horses, riders and all luggage ready, the day begins with a short trip to the base of Seefinn Mountain, (about 20 minutes drive) where the first day's ride begins. Once we have introduced horses and riders, the group heads off, and up over the Windy Gap, taking in panoramic views and  the splendour of Caragh Lake and the valleys beyond. Oncce the Windy Gap has been conquered, the ride continues on to Coomasaharn Lake enclosed by Horseshoe mountain, followed by a scenic ride over an Irish Bog.  The first day finishs for at our stables in Mountain Stage.

 

Sunday and Monday nights are spent in the quaint village of Glenbeigh. (Glenbeigh comes from Gleann Beithe, the Glen of the Birch Trees). The village is almost entirely by mountains, and the area offers a famous friendliness and humour which is nowhere better found than in this tranquil and charming region of Kerry. The scenery is breath-taking, with the River Behy and Rossbeigh Strand close by. The area is full of history and such a destination as Winns Folly Castle is well worth a visit.

 

Horse riding trails in kerryAfter breakfast on Monday the riders return to the stables of the previous evening to begin the second day of the trail ride. Today is spent on Rossbeigh beach, galloping through the waters edge and along stretches of golden sand.  The day finishs with the ride taking the old Cliff road back to the stables with stunning views of Dingle Bay and the Dingle Penninsula.

 

Tuesday morning brings the next move, so riders need to have all luggage packed and down stairs for when they are collected.  Today is a relaxing trail, giving horses and  riders a chance to recover after the last two days and get ready for the next two. The morning ride takes the group from Kells Station through the bogs of Cnoc Bawn and on to Liss Bawn, with some spectacular views of Caherciveen and its surrounds. It then continues on through Island Boy and the Inny Valley and finishes for the day alongside the Tulligane Woods, where we have an Old School House dating back to 1915.

 

Tuesday and Wednesday nights are spent in the small coastal village of Waterville (meaning the little whirlpool). The village, nestles on a narrow strip of land between Lough Currane and the Atlantic Ocean,right in the heart of south-west Kerry.  Its location between the seashore and the impressive mountains and headlands, gives the area many interesting scenic points and fine beaches. By all accounts, the first Celtic invaders are reputed to have landed in Ballinskelligs Bay, coming ashore near the village. The beginnings of the Gaelic Nation are echoed by the Archaeological remains on Church Island, Derrynane Abbey and Skellig Michael tp name but a few, thus giving the area a wealth of history.
 

Irish toursOn Wednesday riders are brought back to the Old School House and the group has an adventurous morning in Tulligane Woods, riding through the Inny Valley and lunching back at the School House along side  the Inny River. The afteroon ride takes a scenic route into Waterville along the old Glencar/Waterville road, with splendid views of the famous fishing lake - Lough Currane.

 

Thursday is the final day of riding on the trail and also the day the last accommodation transfer is made. The morning begins with either a brisk ride to Waterville beach, enjoying some exciting gallops or  a trip aroung the panorama of Hoggs Head and Ballinskelligs Bay (The tide dictates which one we do first) Once we finish riding for the day, its time for riders to say good bye to their horses and guide(s) before everyone and everything is transferred back to Killarney. This last night is spent in Killarney accommodation.

 

And finally, Friday brings everyones departure.
