Equestrian Ireland

High quality riding facilities, a lively equestrian scene and spectacularly pretty countryside make Ireland an increasingly popular choice for visitors seeking a safe and beautiful environment in which to enjoy an equestrian holiday.

The Irish have a long-standing love affair with all things equestrian. Horseracing, for example, is often called the 'sport of kings' and with good reason. Horse riding holidays and trail riding trips can accommodate riders of all levels and there is always the gentler option of a horse drawn caravan holiday.

If you prefer to admire the magnificent animals from a distance, the National Stud Farm outside Kildare raises thoroughbreds and has a visitor centre. However, the majority of people prefer to see horses in action, and there is a range of options, show jumping events, all guaranteeing a vibrant and fun atmosphere.

There are programmes for all ages and abilities from showjumping, cross-country riding and dressage, to hacking and trail riding through magnificent mountain, coastal and forest scenery.

Or try a horse drawn caravan holiday in Ireland for a unique adventure.
 
For spectators, there is the thrill and party atmosphere of a race meeting or a racing festival in Ireland.

Ireland has long been known as The Land of the Horse. You can experience this tradition, as well as enjoying a variety of beautiful scenery, good food, hospitality and fun, if you choose to take an equestrian holiday in Ireland.
