Castles & Monastic Ruins Getaway
Connemara/Galway Ireland

Enjoy the pleasant combination of visiting ancient Irish castles and monastic ruins while riding lovely guided trail rides through the Irish bogs, fields and local farmlands.  On this 4-day ride you will visit the impressive Portumna Castle, which was the seat of the Earl of Clanricarde, and the Pallas Castle, one of the best preserved tower houses and castle grounds dating back to the 14th century. You will also take a  lovely boat ride to Holy Island on the River Shannon to explore the ruins of one of Ireland’s most important monastic settlements, and you will have the chance to ride the horses to lunch at Williamstad House, a beautiful landlord residence from the 18th century!
