The Clew Bay ride is a unique ride on the West Coast of Ireland and offers trail riding on quality Irish-bred horses.  This includes visits to historical sights, riding along stoned walled ancient roads, visits to quaint Irish villages meeting the locals, and riding on the beaches of the Atlantic Way.

Ireland is known as “The Land of The Horse”. A temperate climate and good soil conditions make it an ideal place to raise horses. An ability to cross any country has ensured that the Irish Horse is surefooted and looks after its rider. The Irish people have a natural affinity with the horse and this is evident in the horses they have.

The Clew Bay Trail ride takes small groups of experienced riders along Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way through new and ever-changing landscapes of small villages, breathtaking sandy beaches, sea and off-shore islands, country lanes, mountain tracks, and local heritage sites, stopping for a picnic along the way. ” Your host is a Qualified Riding Instructor, a Monty Robert’s Certified Instructor, and an accomplished Irish horseman whose family has been involved with horses in the locality for generations. The majority of the trail horses have competition experience and have been trained by the family.  This combined with the spectacular Clew Bay region, quality Irish horses and excellent accommodation ensures this is a horse riding adventure holiday you will cherish forever.

All the rides start on a Sunday and finish on a Saturday from May to October.  The ride includes visits to historical sights, rides along country lanes with stone walls, and riding on the beaches of the Atlantic Way.

Why not combine this with a visit to the Irish National Horse stud or the famous Dublin Horse show held every August.
