Riders will be in their element


The ancient forest is steeped in history and heritage and the beautiful woodland paths and spectacular scenery from the saddle will captivate novice and experienced riders alike. From the shores of Lough Corrib, Lough Mask, and into the mountains of Connemara to the west, the area couldn’t be more magical for riding.

Situated within easy walking distance of the Castle, trail rides and lessons are available for all ages and abilities and are accompanied by an experienced guide. Hard hats and Jodhpur boots are provided.
