    This was such a fun an exhilarating experience. The people here are so kind and they really make sure that you are well taken care of on your horse. A ride through the park with your guides describing what you're seeing, the history of everything was so fascinating, truly a once in a lifetime experience. If you don't have a lot of experience on horses, they make sure that you are well taken care of, and the horses themselves are fantastic! Very personable, individualistic, and such a joy to get to know. Seriously, do this!

    We had the MOST lovely experience today for the one hour ride! Our guides were exceptional; warm, kind and knowledgeable. The horses were a lot of fun and the views were second to none. We will 100% come back on our next trip and plan on sharing this experience with friends coming in the future.

    It was really fun! The girls were super sweet just like the horses. The girls were always making sure that we were okay and that everything worked out. The horses were exactly matched to our specifications, so it was a perfect fit. Exploring the National Park on horseback was a wonderful and unique experience. I can only recommend to everyone. Will do it again on our next trip to Ireland.
