Adjacent to more than 50 miles of forest trails and endless country lanes, Slieve Aughty Riding Centre offers some of the best trail riding in all of Ireland. Explore new landscapes every day on a week long trail holiday, or book a trek by the hour and spend a relaxing afternoon on a quiet, safe horse or pony. Find out why the Irish horse is so special as our experienced mounts easily navigate steep inclines, boggy fields, rocky paths, river crossings, tangles of vegetation and more. Bring the camera to capture the incredible scenery.
For more advanced riders, get out of the arena and challenge yourself on our cross country course! Covering over 20 acres, the cross country course presents a variety of obstacles, including water jumps, ditches, walls, drops and combinations, all over varied terrain. Bring your own horse or hire an experienced Irish hunter and enjoy! If riding lessons are desired, our qualified instructors can guide you in the large all-weather sand arena or on the cross country course. After your ride sip a hot tea or cool pint in our cosy restaurant, where we serve up organic food from our own garden. For your comfort, toilet, locker and changing facilities are available for all guests.
An eco-friendly centre, Slieve Aughty makes every effort to minimise our impact on the environment, from biodegradable cleaning agents to chemical free pasture management.
