Great Day Out

An excellent adventure. The horseback riding was fantastic. They took such good care to make sure that we were well matched with an appropriate level of horse and comfortable with riding (for those of us who were novices). The Wicklow Mountains and area are beautiful and well worth spending time. Loved Glendalough too. Our driver Matt was great, ensuring an on time schedule and a safe drive. Highly recommend

Horseback Riding and Glendalough tour

The horseback riding was wonderful. We are not experienced riders and they made sure we were comfortable before starting as well as during the ride. The ride itself was fun. I might suggest bringing a change of clothes. The weather can change quickly and the ride is at the beginning of the tour. Don't let rain deter you. It's still a very worthwhile experience. The drive afterward was beautiful and the guide was very knowledgeable and friendly.

Great work by all staff. No communication between staff and viator. They had no idea why we were there. But they accommodated us great.

This has been a highlight of our trip. The horses were great, our guide was funny and oh so nice, and the countryside was stunning. The lunch was a bit short but the stop to see the old monastery was fun. Would highly recommend this to all horse lovers

To start with, the people were all wonderful! They were polite and helpful the whole time! The horses were great and well trained. The trails were lovely , but I expected a bit longer ride. The weather was classic mist/rainy Ireland weather, absolutely lovely! The rest of the trip was by coach and was beautiful!

Thank you very much for the excellent review, we do have to limit the time on the horse to allow time for all the other stuff you get to see and visit.

Fantastic day! Johnny was terrific!

My girlfriend and I booked this trip for horseback riding and the trip around Wicklow and the day couldn't have been better! The views were amazing and the day was made even better because of how awesome our guide Johnny was. Johnny was very knowledgeable about the Wicklow area, Irish, history, and he also had a great sense of humor to him which made for a lot of laughs along the way. I would highly recommend this trip for anyone who wants to check out Wicklow or if you are traveling to Dublin. I hope you have the pleasure of traveling with Johnny as it was a great craic! Thanks again, Johnny! - Your friends from Boston & Nottingham.

AWESOME

The horseback ride was one of our favorite tours we did while visiting Ireland for 7 days. The guides at Killegar Stables were the best and we especially enjoyed visiting with the guide who rode the horse named "Ben". I apologize for not remembering the young lady's name, but she was so happy and friendly and like a breath of fresh air. The scenery was beautiful and we enjoyed riding through the woods. Our lunch at Poppies Café was great and even though it started to rain, Wicklow Mountains National Park was a sight to see.
