Attraction Information

Island View Riding Stables specialises in beach rides in Sligo and Donegal Bay! A family horse ride can be a magical addition to your day trip or holiday and this is the perfect place for it: the horses and ponies are selected to compliment your needs and experience, plus if your group has several levels of experience between you you will get an extra staff member to ensure everyone is covered! How helpful is that?

Trekking options range from a gentle 30 minute lead rein trek ideal for young kids, to a 1 hour beach ride or a 2 hour hack, right the way up to a full day trail ride! There are actually a whopping 10 trekking options of differing durations and routes, so you can really personalise the trip exactly to your wishes.

Lessons are also available for all ages if they want to get started properly before heading off on adventures. All equestrian activities are supervised by friendly and qualified guides.

Those interested in more gentle leisure activities can rent the elegant horse drawn carriage and explore Yeats' country from the box seat!
