Slieve Aughty Mountains Ride

Itinerary for Slieve Aughty Mountains Ride

This is the perfect riding holiday for the novice or the experienced rider in the heart of the Irish nature. It includes 6 riding days with a total of 15 riding hours - trail riding or lessons.

The riding center is in the rural West of Ireland, just a few miles from the little village of Mountshannon with it’s unique monastic settlement on Holy Island in the Lough Derg. The riding centre is nestled in the rolling hills of the Slieve Aughty Mountains with miles and miles of riding tracks all around. Heather covered bog land and extensive woods invite you to discover the beautiful nature on our horses. Again and again the rider can enjoy the fascinating views over the majestic river Shannon and the juicy green fields enclosed by miles of story telling stonewalls.

There are lots of beautiful and ancient places to be discovered on horseback day after day: from the remnants of the poteen makers cottage to the dolmens (Celtic burial sites up to 5000 years old) can be visited on horseback! The experienced rider can go for daily guided rides, always discovering a new area on little tracks, forest lanes and quiet roads.

The more novice rider will be introduced to the skills of horsemanship and can take part in the basic riding tuition in a relaxed atmosphere. Of course every novice rider will also get to enjoy his/hers new equine friend on hacks through the lovely countryside.

Non-riders are also welcome, there is plenty to for them to do including hiking, cycling, sightseeing, fishing, golfing etc.
