Welcome to Dingle Horse Riding. Set on the dramatic and beautiful west coast of Ireland, we specialise in two hour to week long riding holidays for experienced riders, taking in all the beauty and exhiliration of the mountains and beaches the Dingle Peninsula has to offer. We also offer one hour mountain rides for novice/beginner riders.Our horses are mostly Irish sporthorses, with some draught, cob and appaloosa, ranging from 14hh to 17hh. We pride ourselves in having happy, well-cared for and well turned out horses, friendly knowledgeable guides and great routes designed for both fantastic riding and views. Beginner/novice riders can only be taken on the 1 hour mountain ride. Only riders intermediate/advanced experienced in the English style of riding, able to post/rising trot and ride two point/forward seat in canter can be taken to the beaches. Riders will be assessed in the arena before leaving the yard, and during the one hour ride. In the interests of safety, and at the discretion of the guide, riders judged to be beginner/novice or inexperienced in an English style of riding will not be taken to the beach.

My husband and I recently finished a week-long post-to-post riding trek with Dingle Horseriding that covered a large circuit of the Dingle Peninsula, from west to north to south. What an unforgettable experience! Dingle Horseriding, owned by Susan Callery, is a very well run horse-trekking...More

The facility is nice. The horses are well taken care of. However, the staff was aloof and the female tour guide from Connecticut scolded me the entire ride. She must have told me 15 times to kick my horse and pull the reigns to keep...More

What an amazing adventure it was trecking over the mountain with Dingle Horse Riding.The views of Dingle Harbour and Bay were stunning. The Yard was so professionally run, and the guides were so friendly and helpful. Hope I will be back soon. Thanks, Eileen.

Having only ever ridden horses on touristy trail rides in the US, my experience at Dingle Horse Riding felt like a much more authentic riding experience. Although there is a "trail," the horses often find their own way up and down the hill, and the...More

Hi, the ride was about 2 2 2/12 hours so I' sure they would accommodate. We loved it and I'm sure you and your niece will too!
