Connemara Equestrian Escapes is an equestrian tourism business offering luxury equestrian holidays within the rugged landscape of Connemara on the West Coast of Ireland.
Our equestrian holidays run from 3 to 7 days with daily riding and cultural activities along Ireland’s famous Wild Atlantic Way coast line. A family run business, Connemara Equestrian Escapes has a long history of breeding equines and a successful competition record at national level. Our team of equines are mostly home bred over-height Connemara Ponies and Irish Draught Horses, renowned for their gentle temperament, sure footedness and often quirky character.
Our equestrian vacation experience focuses as much on the culture of Connemara as the horse riding on offer. Riders will re-live a story each day and gain an insight into the tradition and crafts of Connemara. You will be immersed in the Connemara way of life and will ride on a native Connemara pony.
The accommodation is luxurious yet homely as you will stay in some of Ireland’s finest country houses and castles. They offer award winning dining experiences, a high quality of service and many on site facilities.
We also offer
• show jumping, dressage and cross-country residential clinics
• equine assisted wellness retreats
• bring your own horse holidays
• pony and riding club camps

At Killarney Riding Stables we offer 1 hour, 2 hour and 3 hour trail rides.
All our groups go into the National Park in Killarney, which can boast being, the largest and oldest National Park in Ireland. We ride through the Knockreer Demense, North of Lough Lein, (the largest of the three lakes in Killarney) and take in views of Ross Island, along with panoramic views of Innisfallen Island and the McGillycuddy Reeks Mountain Range. The Kenmare Estate and the majestic mountains surrounding Killarney will all be appreciated.
All rides are supervised by guides with special care taken of nervous or beginner riders. We cater for all levels of riding experience (walk, trot and canter depending on each individual's ability), and riders are grouped according to ability.
