We have a large selection of horses and ponies to suit all ages and abilities. Beginners are especially welcome and our carefully selected Irish Cobs are sure to give you a safe pleasant introduction to riding and the Irish countryside. Groups are kept small and are fully escorted and supervised at all times. The private trails are around the farm and up to the summit of Mullaghmesha, where, 580m above sea level, the views are breathtaking and cover a vast area of the West Cork coastline, (on a clear day, and barely your mounts ears in a good Celtic mist). Rides commence with an assessment form, then fitting with helmets, body protectors and riding boots, provided by us, before you meet your horse and head for the hills! - well maybe not quite so fast!

This was our second visit to Ireland and Bantry Pony Trekking. Jenni and Martha were super friendly, accommodating and made us feel very welcome. My husband & I went out for an hour trail ride on Mully and Jasper, and the scenery and vistas were stunning. We climbed up the mountainside that afforded a beautiful view of the valley and... More

Whilst on holiday in west cork we decided at the last minute to try and book a pony ride for our 4.5yr old daughter (who has never ridden) We only booked her a 15minute ride as we weren't sure how she'd take to it. She loved it and so did we. It's off the beaten track, but by following the... More

We arrived at Bantry Pony Trekking without a booking - booking is advised! And still got accommodated as fast as possible! The staff made everything possible for our two girls to throughly enjoy their 40 mins trek. They also got to feed the horses after! Lovely afternoon spent there and extremely happy children. Highly recommended!! Thank you :)

We decided to take a pony ride a last minute and tried to call twice with no success. There was a voice mail which said we should be able to be accommodated of we don't book so we took the chance. The road down to the farm is a bit on the right side but we had no issues. When... More

The staff at Bantry Pony Trekking are extremely friendly. We were a party of 11, 8 been kids. The staff were very experienced at selecting the right pony for the each rider and with mixed ability it was important. The trek itself was wonderful and had amazing views from the mountains. I would highly recommend the Bantry Pony Trekking.
