What to Bring for Castles & Monastic Ruins Getaway


Riders must wear equestrian hard hats and suitable footwear.
 
A client's helmet will need to meet one of these standards:
  • PAS 015:1998
  • SNELL E2001
  • ASTM F1163
  • AS/NZS3838 2003
  • VG1 01.040 2014-12
A relatively warm waterproof coat or jacket and warm sweater should also be included, as the Irish weather can be unpredictable!

We can provide hard hats for you, although you can also choose to bring your own. Your own is best to guarantee comfort.

Saddle bags are not provided, but you  are welcome to bring your own. You may even bring your own saddle if you prefer. 

Please keep in mind that credit card and traveler cheque acceptance is very, very low in the rural West of Ireland!! Please get EURO cash at the airport upon arrival or bring some EURO with you  from home (your bank branch can usually order Euros in for you and you will also get a better rate of exchange than at the airport). Most bank debit cards will work in Irish ATM's. Cell phone rental is available and can be pre-booked through www.rentaphone-ireland.com

If you are traveling from the USA you may wish to check out unlocking your cell phone to use and Irish SIM card. Check out www.unlockitfree.comwww.bilemo.com/unlock
We highly recommend you have your own medical and travel insurance!!
