The Ashford Castle Estate once home to the Guinness family and millionaires playground in the 19th Century, plays host to underground rivers, caves, castles, towers, abbeys and ringforts, as well as some of Irelands oldest species of wild life, red squirrels and pine martins.
At Ashford Equestrian Centre (located beside Irelands island village, Cong on the Mayo/Galway border, 45 minute drive from Galway City and Westport) we aim to give you a local insight to the history and natural features that abound. Whether you are a cautious beginner, or a veteran of the saddle and fancy a fast canter with breath taking lakeshore scenery, we can cater for you.

go!trekking! at Westport Woods Hotel & Spa has the best possible combination of great trekking, excellent accommodation and plenty to do while you're not riding and for partners.
The hotel is located on the outskirts of the award winning heritage town of Westport, between the mountains and the sea. Just perfect. Our three night special break includes two treks - on the beach, splashing through the Atlantic ocean and on the Skelp, around the foothills of Croagh Patrick and woodland tracks.
Our horses aren't typical trekking stock, they're sport horse and cob types, some homebred, and all full of character. One of our most popular activities is beach riding. It's a dream of so many horse riders to canter through shallow waves on a sandy beach and we're happy to be able to make that dream come true. We're lucky to have many beaches to choose from, some at the foot of Croagh Patrick, others (for longer treks) further out into Clew Bay.
Of course the most unique feature of our equestrian holidays is the combination of quality riding with excellent hotel accommodation, complete with leisure centre, swimming pool and spa.
Adventure activities in our grounds are another option for our guests. We are also close to the lovely town of Westport and the picturesque Quay area. This makes equestrian holidays at the Westport Woods ideal for riders and partners alike. Plenty to do for everyone.
The hotel welcomes guests with a roaring log fire and is a great base for riders and non-riders alike. An award winning leisure centre, spa with outdoor hot tub and all day food in the equestrian-themed Bench Cafe Bar all combine for a winning formula. The Westport Woods is proud to be Ireland's greenest hotel.
3 night equestrian break: 3 nights bed and breakfast, 2 evening meals, 2 hour Skelp trek (mountain riding), 2 hours beach riding, full body massage. Only €399pps from January to June.
