Friday

Arrive and settle into your accommodation. Your accommodation is in the luxurious granary barn which has been sumptuously fitted out to the highest standards with pitch-pine floors, oak beams and open fires. All of the bedrooms are en-suite and there is a choice of family rooms, twin rooms and double rooms. Accommodation is full board; all meals are catered for in the superb bistro where food is freshly prepared using local produce. Dinner is served at 7.00pm and over dinner you can chat about the day’s events and this can continue late into the night in typical Irish fashion!

Saturday

This morning breakfast will be served at 9.00am during which time an instructor will discuss with you the day's activities, which horse you would like to ride and which discipline you would like your lesson in. After breakfast you can go onto the yard to assist in the preparation of the horse that you will be riding; don't worry staff are always available to help and advise you if required. After this you will commence your riding with a lesson in your chosen discipline. The ride this afternoon will see you leaving for the fields and the choice is yours again; you can either enjoy some schooling practice over the huge variety of cross-country fences or just go for a hack and relax enjoying the stunning view! After your ride the horses will be untacked and put away for a rest and you too will have time to relax before your evening meal. You can take a trip into the local town which is only 6 minutes away by car, or maybe just read a book from the large selection available in the house.

Sunday

After breakfast this morning you can again go out and help prepare your horse for your lesson. Lessons will commence in your chosen discipline in either the indoor or outdoor schools. After your lesson you will have lunch in the house. This usually consists of quiche, toasted sandwiches, homemade soup, granary bread and salad. After lunch you will be going for a ride in the fields where you can practice your jumping technique over the cross-country fences. We know that the vast majority of riders do not aspire to compete and jump big fences so there are lots of small logs and simple jumps for those who just want to have fun. However, if you do have aspirations for greater things there are jumps to suit you too.

Horses

Horses are available for all ages and levels of experience. Whether you are a complete beginner and have never ridden a horse before or you are a seasoned horseman looking for some challenging cross-country riding, we have the horse to suit you. The horses are typical Irish types, some homebred and all selected for their wonderful temperament and reliability.

Transport

The centre for our horse riding holidays in Ireland package is only 50 miles from Dublin where low cost flights are available from Ryan Air and Aer Lingus. Collection can be arranged from the airport, although the most economical option is to hop on the new airport bus service which stops in the local town and you will be collected from here.

Non-Riders

Non-riders are welcome, here in the heart of Ireland there are a host of local attractions to visit so you can be sure that you won't be board!
There is a 20% discount for under 12 year olds and a much reduced non-rider price.

This break consists of 2 nights full board with 4 hours of riding. If you would prefer 3 nights full board with 6 hours of riding the cost is £475.00 per person

Facilities include indoor and outdoor arenas, a cross-country schooling area with over 130 obstacles and extensive hacking on the 380 acre farm. You can be sure of a traditional warm 'Irish' welcome, all of the instructors are fully qualified and the centre is British Horse Society Approved so you can rest assured that your safety and enjoyment will be a top priority. This is a great horse riding holiday in Ireland with professional instruction.
