Ring of Kerry Ride


Ring of Kerry Ride
Kerry Ireland
Ireland's beautiful wilderness, mysteries and brilliant shades of green make this land stand alone among earth’s natural wonders as Ireland itself stands alone on the edge of the continent of Europe. Explore the highlands of Kerry with us, taking in the majestic MacGillycuddy Reeks, Ireland's highest mountain range. This ride covers a variety of terrain - country lanes, forests, mountain tracks, bogs and some of the beaches at Waterville and on to the magnificent 6.4km (4 miles) stretch of golden sand at Rossbeigh. The Iveragh Peninsula stretches south-west from Killarney and has many places of historic and archaeological interest along the world renowned Ring of Kerry.
A typical day starts, after a hearty breakfast after which the horses are presented to the riders, ready to go on their day's adventure. There is approximately five hours of riding time to explore the bountiful green landscape per day with a lunch break in the middle. At the end of the day, the horses are handed over to the groom and the riders are transported to their bed & breakfast for the evening. You then have your evenings free to explore the nearby towns of the area. Two of the towns we visit are small seaside resorts and three nights are spent in Killarney, a tourist haven of shopping, restaurants and pubs with lively and traditional Irish music. Riders and guides meet on the Saturday to get to know each other and on Sunday we will start our trek to the Ring of Kerry and up into the mountains. One high-lighted destination is Lake Caragh, to which we ride to through a vibrant landscape with rogue cloud formations roaming overhead ,which bathe the hillside in intermittent splashes of sunlight, forming a strange halo over the valley. Crayola Crayons, in their box of 500 colors, has yet to capture all the shades of green featured in Ireland’s countryside....The trail is led at all times by an experienced guide(s) and we are happy to take special care of any nervous  or timid riders. Accommodations are in Killarney, Glenbeigh and Waterville. Luggage is transferred by vehicle to each accommodation.
