Unsurpassed scenery and experience. Far surpassed expectations. Small operation with huge services. Where else can you ride on the beach for an hour. If you think about it, do it!

The pony trek was one of the highlights of my Ireland trip! It was a beautiful way to enjoy the white sand beach and the blue/green ocean. My only complaint? I had time for just the 60-minute ride, and not the three hour ride. 😕...More
