We road horses for four hours in Ireland, through the wild mystic Burren, amidst craggy ruins from the great Irish famine, while catching glimpses of the Cliffs of Moher and the Atlantic. I can now die. Peter Williams takes great pride in the care of...More

I highly recommend Peter and his staff. In our group of five there were two young boys and one extremely nervous adult. With encouragement and patience we had a very enjoyable trek through beautiful scenery. The whole experience made the weekend memorable.

I'd believe it depends on the season - August can be busy there, from what I understand. Also, it's family run, so they don't have a full time receptionist, and it may be a little while before they return emails off season... More
