Friendly guide from Finland working her summer holidays made this a special ride due to her enthusiasm. Into the sea across the beach at a canter and walking in the waves. Came here last year and it was even better this time.

Well worth the price. Guided tour of beach for riders of all skill levels. Amazing beach that you could hike. But so much easier and more special by horseback.

I had the most incredible vacation with Dunfanaghy stables! Chris and Caelan were wonderful guides, the horses were absolutely lovely and the scenery was breathtakingly beautiful! I highly recommend Dunfanaghy stables and can’t wait to come back to ride again!
